Breathtaking natural sights

When it comes to nature, Israel has it all: sandy beaches with sunset views, green trees and fields, solemn desert, fascinating geological formations and more. The country itself may be small, under 300 miles long and about 85 miles across, but what it lacks in area it makes up for in diverse, beautiful scenery. 

In a single day, you could drive across Israel and see mountains, forests, scenic streams, a vast desert – and if you've got the snorkeling equipment, a colorful coral reef. Take a virtual look for yourself as we highlight some of the most remarkable landmarks and waterscapes Israel has to offer.
