From fresh water to panoramic views, the Sea of Galilee offers a little something for everyone.
Known for its historic and biblical importance in Judaism, Islam and Christianity, the Sea (actually a lake) of Galilee is one of Israel's most famous and beautiful attractions. Surrounded by mountains and hills, it is a perfect area for hiking and taking in the panoramic views of the Kinneret. After hiking, cool off in the fresh water at one of the many beaches in the area. From quiet getaways to more crowded, lively beaches, the Kinneret has something for everyone.
