A large freshwater lake situated on a northern part of the Israeli-Jordanian border, Sea of Galilee offers visitors scenic hiking, swimming, and boating opportunities. Featured prominently in ancient Jewish and Christian scripture, the sea served as the site of much of Jesus Christ's ministry in the Gospels. Today the lake provides a source of fresh water to Israeli homes and attracts flocks of visitors to its shores. Taste fresh fish at restaurants on the lake's edge, walk along the pier in Tiberias, or board a boat for a tour from the water.

  • Sea of Galilee or Kinneret more common name in Israel this natural reservoir, which provides water to a large portion of the Israeli population. Sea of Galilee is the lowest freshwater lake on Earth, is located on level-213 meters below sea level at the foot of the Dutch. The biblical sea today is a favorite vacation spot of Israelis of all ages. Many hotels in Tiberias, there are hot springs and on the opposite shore, too, and around the coast are numerous campsites with cabins or just places for tents and barbecue, and on the slope of the Dutch heights full guest wooden houses with swimming pools and Jacuzzi with spectacular views of this beautiful Lake

  • This legendary Lake very many names of Galilee, Lake Geresareckoe, the sea of Galilee, etc. All who feels close to the ideas of Christianity will be interesting to visit the Galilee and Lake. I advise to visit an Orthodox monastery of Mary Magdalene and plunge into radon sources. Do not forget to baptismal shirts. Blessed place.
