With 200 kilometers of beautiful sandy beaches, a warm sea, and year-round sunshine, Israel is the perfect beach destination.

Whether you like to take it easy or get physical with any of the dozens of beach sports available, from Sup, to windsurfing, matkot, or frisbee, Israel’s beaches are the place to visit.

21see’s Kathy Cohen takes us on an adventurous trip to the beach to try her hand at many of the activities on offer, including selling Israel’s famous artik, trying out the Hasake – Israel’s very own version of the paddleboard, and visiting the Israel Sea Turtle Rescue and Rehabilitation Center in Mikhmoret.

Click on the film above, relax and enjoy a taste of Israel’s summer.
