Sea of Galilee, Tiberias

4.5
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. Use Inspirock's suggestions to plan your Tiberias trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.

  • I stayed in a studio apartment 300 metres from the shores. It has a friendly atmosphere with lots of eateries and shops. Would recommend visiting the spas nearby.  more »
  • The wild flowers were blooming and everything was very green. We rode on a boat on the Sea of Galilee and had a fun time. There are many historic sites around the sea so we had a wonderful time sights...  more »
  • The walk starts from the marina of Genosar and to the city of Tiberias. A sea of positive emotions. And they start at the pier, waiting for the landing on your boat you watch as other boats dock and sail, and around a hundred seagulls. People are ignored, flying in front of your nose, catching bread right on the fly. Then the walk itself with the breeze, with the music. Stunning views. Highly recommend to everyone!

  • Sailing on the Sea of Galilee wil forever be one of the great highlights of my life. It's one of the most beautiful places I've ever been able to visit, but knowing how many trips the Lord Jesus took across that water with His disciples made the time so much more special. To remember how He walked on that water and how He calmed hose waves was amazing.
  • I was there in 2005 it was a very interesting place we took the boat trip with 50 friends it was a very significant place in the Bible many sites around the lake if you go to Israel you must go no trip would be complete without seeing a galley
  • I have read the king James holy bible, the genesis all the way to the new testament and the revelation.. Glory to the maker's of heaven and Earth..,thank you lord Jesus christ for everything..hallelujah!!amen..
  • One of the lakes you don't wanna swim in... Found human bones inside and the water quality is below average... Better swim in your bathtub
  • Outstanding experience. Just beautiful!
