July is the perfect time of year in Israel for a combination of hiking and swimming. That’s why we’ve decided to do a hike in the morning with some relaxation in the afternoon by the sea at one of Israel’s most uniquely pristine beaches.
The Carmel mountain range is the only one in Israel that reaches the sea and the area offers one of the best hikes during the summer months. The Yagur River Gorge is a shaded area that offers a great escape from the summer heat while still being able to check out a unique part of the country.
Before heading down to Bonim-Dor, we’ll stop in Usifiye and Daliat el Carmel, two of Israel’s largest Druze communities, perched high upon the Carmel ridge.
Bonim-Dor is one of Israel’s most precious stretches of coastline and home to the ancient Phoenician port city of Dor – dating back more than 5000 years! The area is filled with caverns and coves and offers a special look at the calcareous sandstone ridges lining the sea. Ancient Dor can be seen at the southern tip of the beach.
Early Discounted Tickets can be purchased for 169.50 NIS. The price includes transportation to and from Tel Aviv, coffee and cookies in the morning! Standard priced tickets will be sold at 189.50 NIS and includes the same.
