Israel is a great honeymoon destination if you're religious, but with its diverse landscapes, lively parties, and welcoming beaches, it also has plenty to offer secular honeymooners. During your Israel honeymoon, you can visit lively cities, lush vineyards, deserts, mountains, and no less than four seas. Take a break from your adventures to enjoy the white sandy beaches, premium wines, and top-notch nightlife venues.
For the best Israel honeymoon experience, visit different destinations throughout this diverse country. Here are a few of the very best places to discover:
The ancient city of Jerusalem offers the perfect backdrop for a religious honeymoon, or a multicultural one. The city's Arabic, Armenian, Christian, and Jewish quarters are filled with churches, mosques, and synagogues. The most important sacred sites are the golden dome of Al-Aqsa Mosque, the vast Church of Holy Sepulchre, and the beautiful Great Synagogue.
This Mediterranean city is the commercial, political, and cultural capital of Israel. Shopaholics and fashion lovers delight in the city's supermarkets and boutiques, and if you're looking to party, the thrumming nightlife of the city has you covered. On top of all this, Tel Aviv also boasts beautiful beaches, making it the most versatile and lively honeymoon destination you could wish for. For a romantic evening, visit the Florentin neighborhood to admire street art and have dinner in a cozy, hip restaurant.
If you want to discover historical neighborhoods, while also enjoying great shopping opportunities, consider visiting Jaffa for your honeymoon. The city's old port features cobbled docks, narrow alleyways, churches, mosques, stone buildings, and charming art galleries. Jaffa's biggest draw, however, are its huge markets, such as Flea Market and Carmel Market, where you can find delicious food, teas, spices, and clothes.
If you're looking for a relaxed vibe and beautiful beaches for your honeymoon, head to Eilat, the southernmost town in Israel. You can snorkel or scuba dive in the Red Sea, or simply visit the Coral World Underwater Observatory Marine Park to observe sharks, walruses, and many other marine species. Alternatively, enjoy a romantic cruise along the Suez Canal and the Mediterranean coast.

What to Do During Your Honeymoon in Israel
As a honeymoon destination, Israel has a lot to offer. From wine tasting to exploring desert landscapes, here are a few ideas of what to do on your Israel honeymoon:
Israel offers numerous sandy beaches for honeymooners to enjoy. Admire the sunset on a Mediterranean beach, or explore the coral reefs of the Red Sea. Further idyllic beaches in Israel include Caesarea Beach, where you will find the ruins of an ancient Roman aqueduct, and the secluded Jizr A-Zarqa Beach. On the other hand, if you prefer to spend the whole night partying on the beach, head to the lively beaches of Tel Aviv.
Visit the Negev Desert
Covering more than half of Israel's land, the Negev Desert features large dunes and stunning rock formations. Guided desert tours are available. Tour the cliff-top fortress of Masada for unparalleled views over the Dead Sea, or climb up Mount Negev to look out over Makhtesh Ramon, a heart-shaped crater that is also a protected nature area. To add a special touch, tour the desert on the back of a camel.
This picturesque city is renowned as the childhood home of Jesus Christ. Small, cobbled lanes lined with churches and mosques create an atmospheric backdrop for a romantic excursion. Peruse the stalls in the Old City's market place and visit the Church of Annunciation. According to legend, this church was built above a cave that served as a dwelling for the Virgin Mary.
Taste Israeli Wines
Israel has many excellent wineries where you can admire the vineyards and sample excellent wines, often served with delicious cheese. Some top wineries you can visit during your Israel honeymoon are Tishbi Winery near Caesarea, Tulip Winery between Haifa and Nazareth, and Tabor Winery east of Nazareth.
