Great tour!

  • Lee Allred
“Petra was definitely our highlight! It really wowed us. The Wadi Rum desert was also a truly unique and amazing experience. We also enjoyed Jerusalem for its beauty and historically rich culture. The rest of the Israel tour was kind of a whirlwind sampler, but gave us additional overview of what the country has to offer. Having the Dead Sea day in-between the Jordan tour and the Israel tour was welcome chill time to recharge and experience the rejuvenating effects of the Dead Sea water and mud!”

“My mom and I booked a 4/5 day private tour of Jordan and a 1/2 day private tour of Israel with the local travel specialist. They handled all of the booking for us and were very responsive and flexible in switching out hotels, activities and timing per our request. They handled everything for us, and all we had to do was show up at the Queen Alia airport! We felt very safe throughout the whole trip - everyone was welcoming, especially in Jordan as the country’s primary economic revenue is through tourism. Our Jordan driver, Tayseer, was phenomenal and had amazing English. He even taught us some Arabic! He had wifi in the car, cold water and A/C waiting for us whenever we’d come back, and provided us with a local cell phone so we could contact him when needed. He coordinated with all of our local hotels and guides to make sure we were all set and that they’d take good care of us. We are vegetarian, and he’d call ahead to make sure the local restaurants or hotels could accommodate our diet. Tayseer also helped us out in a sticky situation where we lost a phone and he coordinated with local security and guides to help us find the phone and drove extra to get our phone back. If you’re booking a tour in Jordan, I’d highly recommend requesting to have Tayseer be your driver! He really made our journey fantastic. We stayed at the Holiday Inn at the Dead Sea and had a very relaxing time there! Their spa is small but good, so if you’re interested in a treatment, I’d recommend either calling ahead or asking the agency to help book an appointment. We did the Petra by Night experience (definitely worth it if you can arrange your itinerary) and Petra the next daytime. Basel was our guide in Petra and he taught us a lot about the Nabateans and also took great pictures of us. I’d recommend bringing about ~25 JD per person in cash if you think you might use the golf cart or horses / mules as it can get very hot in the summer post-10am. We then did a Jeep excursion in Wadi Rum with Yahya. Yahya’s English was really good, and he showed us the main highlights of the dessert. There was a natural bridge he showed us and he took me on a little impromptu scaling / climbing adventure to get to the top! Super cool experience. You could also tell he genuinely cared for the people of the desert and animals around him - when he was showing us the way the Nabateans collected water, he noticed someone had left a mule tied to a shrub in the heat and brought water from his Jeep for the animal. Truly, he had a pure heart. Please request him if you’re booking a Jeep tour in Wadi Rum. We then continued to Jericho, Bethlehem, Jerusalem and Tel Aviv/Jaffa from the land crossing. We had a great time seeing all of the holy sites - definitely worth the trip. Make sure you negotiate well if you shop from the markets - even for food! There was a juice place that first quoted us 25 Shekels and then eventually said 15. But anyways, had a great time! Thank you so much travel expert.”

Beaches in Israel

3 Most Popular Beaches in Israel

  1. Gordon Beach: Gordon Beach is the most popular of the capital’s 13 beaches among locals and tourists alike. If beachgoers aren’t lapping up the rays sunbathing, you’ll find them playing paddleball or volleyball. Gordon Beach is popular, so if you find it busy for your taste, Alma Beach is just a few kilometers down the coast and has the same vibes but tends to be quieter.
  2. Ein Bokek: Located on the Dead Sea, Ein Bokek Beach is one of the few beaches on this coastline that is free and open to the public. It has soft sand, a promenade, and amenities like a café and nearby resorts, but most people make the trip here to enjoy the therapeutic waters of the Dead Sea with its incredibly high salt content. Local hotels and establishments also add to the relaxation factor by offering Dead Sea mud treatments.
  3. Dolphin Reef Beach: Situated on the Red Sea, this beach does require an entry fee but it is well worth paying. Not only is it a gorgeous beach located away from the busy resorts, but it also offers the chance to swim with the bottlenose dolphins that frequent the area which gives this beach its name!

Highlights of Israel Beach Tours

  • Enjoy a perfect mix of beachy and urban lifestyles on a beach tour to Tel Aviv. The city’s beaches are linked by a sycamore-lined strip off of which you’ll find bars, restaurants, and easy links into the city center.
  • Sunbathe alongside pieces of ancient history at Caesarea. Founded in 25 BC, this port town is home to Aqueduct Beach, where fittingly you’ll find the ruins of an old Roman-era aqueduct nestled along the sand. The ruins can also be viewed from underwater by booking a trip with the Old Caesarea Diving Center.
  • Get a taste of adventure at Coral Beach in Eilat, famous for surfing, kiteboarding, and diving. The water here is clear and great for swimming, giving you amazing opportunities to view the colorful coral reef.
  • Book an appointment at one of the many Dead Sea spas for pampering. Treatments include healing baths, massages, and facials that all use either mud or salt from the Dead Sea, renowned for their healing properties.
  • Experience wonders both on and off land at Achziv Beach. As part of the Achziv National Park, adventurous visitors can even camp out here to explore both the national park itself and its waters, with shallow lagoons and the opportunity to see the turtles that lay their eggs there!

Travel Tips for Beach Tours in Israel

  • Check ahead of time if you plan to visit separate beaches in Israel. Many separated beaches alternate days between men and women; ensure you prepare your travel itinerary accordingly.
  • Don’t shave before going into the Dead Sea, and make sure any cuts are covered with a waterproof coating. Due to the high salt content of the water, any open wounds will sting!
  • Keep in mind that temperatures can get incredibly hot on the beaches in Israel during the summer months. You may want to avoid the hottest midday hours.
  • Save money by considering visiting good beaches in Israel in the shoulder season: April and May. Not only is it considerably cheaper, but beaches are much quieter and the weather is still pleasant at an average of 26°C.
