Spectacular Israel is a melting pot of history and culture, where east meets west and traditional meets modern around every corner. From the ancient wonders of Jerusalem, to Tel Aviv''s cosmopolitan city vibes, it''s a perfect place to enjoy two holidays in one, with the polar-opposite cities just an hour''s drive apart.
With over 120 miles of shimmering sands to explore, beach bunnies will adore Tel Aviv''s sun-kissed Mediterranean coastline. Chilled-out Jaffa Beach''s big waves make it a firm favourite with surfers, whilst families flock to Metzitzim, famed for its shallow waters and fun-filled summer beach parties.
If you fancy a jaunt out of the cities, the magical Dead Sea is just a few hours from Tel Aviv, via a direct bus service. Bordering both Israel and neighbouring Jordan, its super-salty waters are a whopping 1,388ft below sea level, making it the lowest place on Earth!
