About Coastal Plain
The Coastal Plain stretches along Israel’s Mediterranean Sea from the north to the south.
It is home to more than half of Israel’s population. It includes major urban centres, cultural sites, deep water harbours, beaches, nature reserves, archaeological sites, agricultural farms and orchards.
The Mediterranean coast means stunning beaches and recreation.
Thousands flock to the turquoise beaches, to bask in the sun, catch wonderful pictures, indulge in a range of water activities, swim, wade, run, sail and tan. October is the ideal time to visit the beast beaches in Israel.
