Where to stay:
In Tel Aviv, Beach Front Hotel has a good price and very good reviews! Set opposite the free public beach, this property is on Herbert Samuel Promenade, Tel Aviv’s most lively neighbourhood. It offers a rooftop terrace with a bar, sun loungers and panoramic sea views. The Beachfront Hotel has a lively seaside location as well as its own entertainment area. Guests have an unlimited supply of beach towels and free hot and cold drinks.

In Eilat we encourage you to stay in 3* Sunset Inn with excellent reviews. This property is 10-minute walk from the beach. Offering free Wi-Fi, the guesthouse is located in the centre of Eilat, about 15-minute walk from the Red Sea and the town’s shopping promenade. Its air-conditioned rooms have flat-screen cable TV, while the on-site bar serves light drinks and snacks. Each room has some kitchenette facilities including a microwave, a minibar and electric kettle with coffee and tea. The en-suite bathroom includes free toiletries.

With free private parking, the Sunset Motel is within a 2-minute walk from the central bus station and from Eilat Airport.

What to do:
Visit the mountaintop fortress of Masada, overlooking the Dead Sea region. Masada National Park is home to incredible views and some fascinating history. Hike the Snake Path to enjoy the excellent panoramas all the way. You can also take the cable car.

Float in the Dead Sea or head to the Read Sea coast. Eilat is devoted to sun, fun, diving, partying and desert-based activities. Go sun tanning, swimming with dolphins, snorkelling or scuba diving.

Stand at the edge of the Ramon Crater. Located in Mitzpe Ramon, it’s 40 km in length and 10 km at its widest point. You can try activities such as Jeep tours and Segway tours or choose a helicopter or hot air balloon flight for spectacular views of the crater from above.

In Haifa you can marvel at the Golden Dome and the Baha’i Gardens, which tumble down the hillside towards the sea in a series of immaculate green terraces.

Visit Jaffa, a chilled-out little harbour town, perfect for aimless wandering. It is home to a nice Old Town and an excellent flea market.

Tel Aviv offers surprising attractions like a water fight, the Gay Pride Parade, the Purim Street Party, the Tel Aviv Fashion Week and more.

Visit Jerusalem, the city where three religions collide, and place a prayer between the cracks of the huge stones that make up the Western Wall.
