Capture the moment! The best places to grab a picture in Israel 
Making the trip out to the Holy Land? Don’t go home without some amazing pictures to remember it by! Israel is a beautiful country steeped in culture and history, so no matter where you go, you’re bound to find some amazing photo opportunities. But if you get the chance, be sure to check out some of the following gems.

The Dead Sea
How could we not put the Dead Sea at the top of the list? This world-famous landmark is still one of the best places to grab a photo in Israel. Make sure you have a memory of the soothing sensation of floating in this magical body of water to hold on to for years to come.

St. George’s Monastery
There is no shortage of must-see religious locations in Israel, and you can capture amazing photos at all of them. But, if you’re looking for sheer visual spectacle, the cliff-side St. George’s Monastery will knock your socks off.

Carved into the rock of Wadi Qelt, it is one of the oldest and most breathtaking monasteries in the world. Obviously, you’ll want to get some photos of its amazing exterior, but don’t forget to check out the reliquary inside, a (slightly creepy) chance to see thousands of years of history up close.

The Dolphin Reef in Eilat
With over 10,000 square meters of semi-enclosed waters filled to the brim with exotic marine life, the Dolphin Reef in Eilat is the perfect place to grab an unforgettable picture. While there are all kinds of interesting aquatic animals to see at the reef, the undisputed number one attraction are the dolphins. These friendly, playful creatures are more than happy to swim and play with visitors. Getting one to sit still long enough to grab a picture might be difficult, but well worth the effort!

Ramon Crater
We’ve written about the Ramon Crater before, but it bears repeating. If you’re looking for the raw beauty of Israeli nature, you can’t do much better than the crater. This 839-meter-tall cliff face is sure to inspire your photography skills. If you can, try to come at night and get a shot of the stars over the valley below, an absolutely breathtaking view.

The Rothschild Boulevard and Herzl Street Espresso Kiosk in Tel Aviv
You can’t claim to understand Israeli street life without making yourself familiar with its espresso kiosks, and what better one to capture on film than THE espresso kiosk at the corner of Rothschild and Herzl. This little piece of Israeli history was the very first espresso bar in Tel Aviv, established all the way back in 1910, setting the standard for what is today an Israeli standard.

The kiosk is still a bustling hub of activity where you can get a strong cup of "botz,” and it also marks another landmark – the Independence Trail. This unguided street tour starts at the kiosk and winds its way through downtown Tel Aviv hitting a number of other locations. Think of it as a great chance to snap an amazing pic of Israeli street life before a day of exploration and discovery!

Beit Guvrin National Park Bell Caves
These incredible caves speak for themselves. A geological marvel that has been a hub of activity for over 2000 years, these caves feature gorgeous natural patterns and texture, unique formations and shapes, and delightful ceiling holes, perfect for allowing a single beam of sunlight down to frame your photo. 
With over 800 caves to choose from, you can be sure to take a unique, once in a lifetime photo you’ll cherish for years to come.

These are some of the best places to take a photo in Israel, but there are so many more! If you’re not sure where to start, you may want to keep an eye on our regular tours! These events are a guaranteed way of seeing the best Israel has to offer and celebrate the beauty of this special nation with fellow Christians. This year’s April tour might have passed, but it’s the perfect time to get on our priority reservation list for the 2020 tour!
