Cruising to Haifa

A port of wonderment

When it comes to experiencing Israel's third largest city, Haifa, you may well be overcome with its beauty, culture and atmosphere. The country's largest port features a particularly active beach, while its mix of modern neighbourhoods and older districts make for a fascinating environment.

Although the coast is a popular draw for those who want to engage in water sports and sun worshipping, you'll undoubtedly want to spend some time exploring Haifa's identity as a city.

From the charming alleyways of the Khalisa, Abas and Wadi Nisnas areas to the vibrant shopping centres where locals rub shoulders with the tourists, this is a city that thrives on contrast. Without a doubt its most famous sight is the majestic Baha'i or Hanging Gardens, clinging to the side of Mount Carmel and surrounding the stunning shrine of the Báb. Visit at night too for dramatic lighting, which illuminates the side of the mountain in dynamic way, making for some great photo opportunities.

Whatever you're seeking in atmosphere - be it romantic, hustle and bustle or cool and quiet - you'll find it within this gem of a city.
