The Sea of Galilee (Kinneret )

The backdrop of many significant historical and religious events, The Sea of Galilee (or Lake Kinneret) is a pilgrimage site for tourists from all over the world. However, this vast freshwater lake (by far Israel’s largest) is so much more than a historical landmark.

Some sandy, some rocky, some narrow, some wide; Its stunning shores are lined with great places to relax by the waters, vast well-equipped camping grounds, cycling and walking trails.

The Sea of Galilee’s mostly calm clear water is the perfect setting for the wide range of water sports available, including water skiing, wake boarding, banana boating, tornado boating, tubing and much more. And if you’re a kid, by age or at heart, you will love the awesome water slides in the surrounding Luna Gal, Tsemakh or Gai Beach water parks.
