Surfing in Israel

Children may take classes of surfing in Hof Hacarmel Beach in Haifa. Or try surfing near Tel Aviv in the Havatzelet Hasharon Beach in Netanya.

Meet sea turtles

Children ages five and up can learn all about brown and green sea turtles and the dangers they face and how to protect them — at the Israel Sea Turtle Rescue Center in Mikhmoret. A tour of the Rescue Center and its hospital can be combined with a tour of nearby Beit Yanai Beach or Alexander Stream.

Swim with dolphins

Make childhood dreams come true and head down to Israel’s south to swim with everyone’s favorite marine mammal.

At the Dolphin Reef in Eilat, visitors can choose between observing the dolphins from the pier, snorkeling with them or going diving alongside them.

Bird watching in Israel

One of the best places to see birds and other wildlife is Agamon Ha Hula, a Galilee park you can tour by foot, bicycle, golf cart or guided safari wagon. The peak times for birdwatching are the fall and spring migration seasons.

Rosh Hanikra grottoes

Located at the most northwestern tip of Israel, the marine caves at Rosh Hanikra are more than well-worth the journey.

Visitors take a short cable-car ride to sea level, where they can walk around the stunning grottoes and learn all about their fascinating history.

Go caving in Israel

Exploring Israel’s famous caves is another great option for escaping the scorching summer sun. Located throughout the country, visitor-friendly and accessible caves offer cool respite and a fun opportunity to learn more about nature, geology and history.

Some options include Galilee Bedouin Camplodge in the Lower Galilee; Desert Days and Kibbutz Lotan in the Arava Valley; Silent Arrow and Desert Shade in Mitzpeh Ramon; Kfar Hanokdim near Arad; and Shayarot near Sde Boker.
