Israel is blessed with four major bodies of water. The Sea of Galilee is the largest freshwater lake in the world. The Red Sea offers some of the world’s best diving due to its coral reef and throngs of sea life.
The Dead Sea is ten times as salty as the Ocean, and at 400 metres below sea level, it has the lowest land elevation on earth. Some of Israel’s best resort beaches are on the Mediterranean.
From the towering peaks of the Masada, to the ancient ruins of Caesarea and the narrow ancient paths of Jerusalem and Nazareth, the history, the religious significance and the antiquity of the country lend it a mystical air.
