When it comes to ports and marinas, Israel has plenty. If you’re coming to Israel by boat, then you’ll want to know where to find the best ports and marinas.


Haifa Port

Possibly the best port on Israeli soil is in Haifa. The Haifa port is renowned worldwide for its facilities and convenience. The staff will truly treat you like a VIP; unlike some other often-visited ports of the world, Haifa treats every guest as unique, and it truly shows in the customer experience.

As the main port of Israel, the Haifa port is always busy and full of life. If you’re feeling a bit adventurous, there’s Mt. Carmel nearby, which if climbed, will give you a full view of one of the most gorgeous ports in the world.

The port area is filled with shops and restaurants to help pass time in between journeys, or just to offer a moment’s respite when you need it.

Tel Aviv Marina

The Tel Aviv marina is possible the most popular in Israel, sitting in Israel’s second most populous and most economically prosperous city.

The Tel Aviv marina and sea center tours can be a bit pricey, but you’re getting precisely what you paid for. A unique, 100% genuine experience of Israeli coast and lifestyle.

It’s an excellent place to take a night’s stroll, as the beautiful waters and carefully lined up ships give a surreal and relaxing vibe, seldom found elsewhere. That being said, if you’re on a budget, you might want to avoid the surrounding restaurants as they tend to belong to a higher price range.

Eilat Marina

Finally, the Eilat marina is found right next to a  5-star hotel, so if you’ve got some cash to spare and want somewhere to stash your yacht, this marina might be the spot for you.

Naturally, the marina is accompanied by a huge lineup of stores and restaurants competing for your attention at every corner.

Beware though, if you’ve been looking forward to summer walks on the beach, Eilat can get extremely heated, with temperatures going over 40 degrees Celsius. Because of this, always be prepared, wear sunscreen, maybe even get a hat, but above all, make sure to enjoy your stay!

Getting to all these ports can be a troublesome task if you haven’t got a car. There’s no public transport running through this area, so renting a car will be your best bet.
