Nahariya Travel

A Nahariya travel vacation is the opportunity for visitors to enjoy some rest and relaxation. Like many resorts further south, Nahariya has a bustling city center, shops, museums and a vibrant café lifestyle. Visitors travel to Nahariya to enjoy its unspoilt beaches and surrounding natural sights.

Nahariya is one of Israel’s newer settlements, populated in 1934 by German immigrants who introduced industry and tourism to the area as the early pioneers of Nahariya travel. Today the city has a population of 52,000, serving a thriving tourism industry. One of the most delightful ways to enjoy a Nahariya travel experience is by horse-drawn carriage. They can be found lining the city streets and the promenade. Drive at a sedate pace along Nahariya’s main thoroughfare, Sderot HaGa’aton, and find yourself alongside the Ga’aton River as it rushes towards the sea. The streets are lined with charming coffee houses, shops and local restaurants which add to the appeal of a Nahariya vacation.

Another great way to enjoy a vacation in Nahariya is on the tourist train; a replica locomotive with two wagons which takes passengers on a round trip from the city center to the beach. There is a promenade which is ideal for strolling or people-watching from the pavement cafés. It runs all the way to Acre, almost 10km away, along the edge of the beautiful coastline.


The beach is perfect for sunbathing, swimming and watersports. Diving is also popular as part of any Nahariya vacation and diving to the sunken remains of the Kidon missile boat is a popular activity. The zoological and botanical gardens in the city are also worth visiting.


When you have had your fill of Nahariya’s pleasures, tours can be booked to see the surrounding areas of interest with a local guide. A tour is the best way to ensure you don’t miss out on any of the area’s main attractions, allowing you to relax and enjoy the journey too.

Starting in the city, Nahariya travel excursions should include the Byzantine Church in Bielefeld Street with its ancient mosaic floors and the Nahariya Historical Museum at Beit Lieberman. The area around Nahariya is full of beautiful nature reserves, the Bahai Gardens and all the sights in Acre, or take a tour to the lovely Sea of Galilee, less than an hour’s drive away.
