Top 5 things to do in israel

Israel, a beautiful small country in the Middle East and a place I wanted to go for a while. This country has been in news for many controversies and issues. To my Muslim friends, they still call Israel Palestine, and to my Jewish friends, it is Israel.  Regardless of the current politics, this country is still very beautiful and a great place to go on vacation. This post will inform you of the top 5 things to do in Israel.

1)Visit the beaches

When we think about Israel for most, beaches aren’t on our minds. However, Israel really has some really nice beaches that you have to visit. From the dead sea to the mediterranean sea, you will be blown away as to how beautiful the beaches are. If you like beach weather and lifestyle, then you should visit Tel Aviv. With skyscrapers near the beach, it will remind you of the gold coast Australia.  So, if you are into beaches then Israel has a few just waiting for you to visit.

2) Visit the Eilat’s barrier Reefs

Australia has the Great Barrier Reef and Central America has Mesoamerican Barrier Reef System. So, Israel has the Eilat’s Barrier Reef. Although not as big as the world’s largest and second-largest, Eilat’s Barrier Reef is still worth the visit. There are many snorkeling trails and you can even scuba dive here. This nature reserve and the national park were listed in the New York Times as a place to go in 2019. There is even a public aquarium here that is actually the biggest in the Middle East. Yes, it is even bigger than the ones in Dubai and Qatar. So, this is definitely something that should be on your list of things to do in Israel.

3) Do a historical and/or religion tour

Israel is home to religious sites for 3 religions. Including two of the world’s largest religions. Picture you walking in the steps of Jesus and where he was born. If you are Muslim, you can visit the Dome of Rock and the Al-Aqsa Mosque. Which is the third most important religious site in Islam. Needless to say, there are tons of Jewish sites for you to visit. However, If you aren’t into any of those religions, you can still learn about history. There are tons of historical sites here that are waiting for you to visit. There are Roman ruins here that you can explore.

4) The Street Food 

Israel surprisingly has some of the best street food that you can eat on a global scale. The street food here is safe to eat. So, you don’t have to worry too much about getting food poisoning. However, you should always see them cook the meat properly and reviews, if they have any. When it comes to food, Israel is very interesting and diverse. Since this is a country that many Jewish people came from all over the world to relocate, the food scene reflects that. Also with the new immigrants, you can see it in the food.  From North African to European dishes, there is something new for everybody to try. There are street food tours for you to take. This is definitely something for you to cross off your list of things to do in Israel.

5) visit the Red Canyon

Just outside of Eilat, Red Canyon is a place you want to visit. If you like hiking and seeing rock formation, this is the place to go. Similar to the grand canyon in the usa, there are many tours to take. It’s warm year-round, so you can definitely go hiking during the winter. If you want to learn more about the Red Canyon, here is the link. This is definitely one of the best things to do in Israel.

  1. I’ve not been to Israel, but it’s incredible to see that there’s so much more to the country than just Jerusalem. I had no idea that there are barrier reefs, and the Red Canyon looks remarkably like that of Antelope Canyon in the US! Guess I’ll have to book my next plane ticket to Israel soon!

    1. I never been to antelope canyon. a lot people I know have and they said it beautiful. I tend to forget how breathtaking the USA can be sometimes. Yeah, Israel is amazingly stunning. I ‘m glad you liked the post 🙂

  2. Yes, I agree, Israel’s a great country. I’ve only been once – I split my time between Tel-Aviv/Jaffa and Jerusalem. Tel Aviv is quite friendly and laid-back, and Jerusalem’s really interesting, especially the Old City. Outside the Old City, the Yad Veshem Museum is quite emotional, and the Garden Tomb is very peaceful, with beautiful plants and trees.
    Thanks for a really helpful post.
