An Israel honeymoon will provide you with a large variety of experiences like few other countries can. It has some of the best beaches on the Mediterranean, rugged deserts, chic and sophisticated cities, and a great deal of significant history.

All of this is packed in a country the size of New Jersey. And the food is fantastic, as well. After a hectic time preparing for your wedding, you deserve everything that Israel has to offer.

Tel Aviv, Israel’s most populous city, has a lovely beach and lively nightlife. Stroll to Old Town, or Jaffa, and take in the shops, arty treasures, and cafes.  The many bars are filled with music and dancing.

For some alone time, visit the Negev Desert. In contrast to the bustling cities, the Negev is as isolated as it gets, with a surreal beauty like no other. You can either stay at one of their luxury accommodations (including a winery) or take a guided tour. Don’t leave until you have ridden a camel. 

While on your Israel honeymoon, you cannot miss Jerusalem, a city claimed by several religions. You will find a number of fine restaurants and shops here. The Dead Sea is just a day trip away. The Dead Sea is one of the most mysterious places in the Mideast, and the perfect opportunity to cover yourself completely in some of the Sea’s famous healing mud. May we suggest you save on water by showing together before enjoying a cocktail?

About Israel

Israel is a Jewish State, expect busy travel times around major Jewish holidays like Passover and Rosh Hashanah. Also, be aware that most offices close for Shabbat (Friday through Saturday).  In a major city such as Tel Aviv, you will find the majority of restaurants open. They serve both kosher and non-kosher. Keep in mind bus service can be restricted on Shabbat, in the event you are planning a day trip. 

Jerusalem is the primary city in Israel. It’s the place of three separate religions. It has been walled in for almost 500 years and is considered the holiest of sites for Jews. Everyone, not just Jews, will be amazed at the religious history of Jerusalem. The Church of the Holy Sepulchre, where Christ was buried and reborn, is the most sacred place for Orthodox Christians.

The Western Wall is another Holy Site in Jerusalem that you cannot miss.  It is one of the supporting walls of the Temple Mount and the site of annual journeys for thousands of people. Be aware that the wall is separated by gender. Both genders should dress conservatively and respectfully. Gentlemen should have their heads covered, as well. Praying isn’t the sole activity of the Wall. There are underground walls which visitors can visit by taking guided tours. 

Classical music is highly popular in Israel, even among the younger population. The Israel Philharmonic Orchestra frequently holds concerts in the Charles Bronfman Auditorium in Tel Aviv. Many other classical events take place throughout Israel and are worth attending. 

With the multitude of religious activities in Israel, be prepared and pack accordingly for your Israel honeymoon. A shawl can cover a woman’s shoulders while visiting a religious site. Short skirts and shorts should not be worn while strolling the major cities. Even wandering through highly Orthodox neighborhoods requires the modesty of a long skirt and covered arms. Men also should wear long pants (no shorts) and shirts with long sleeves. However, do pack a bikini for the beach. 

When you are in Jerusalem, do not miss the Shuk, a 24-hour a day marketplace replete with thrilling sounds and smells. Here, everyone, European, Jews, and Arabs roam the narrow streets of the Shuk, where the vendors sell fresh produce, coffee, pastries, and aromatic spices. This is an experience in which even the locals take part. Totally non-religious in one of the world’s most religious cities, the Shuk brings people together as few other events do. Restaurants and cafes lining the alleys turn the Shuk into a social event not to be missed. 

Best Time to Visit Israel

Many people travel to Israel for religious reasons during Passover or Rosh Hashanah, which can add to the fun but will ensure that everything is more crowded. Summers tend to be hot and humid in the coastal regions, but there is some cooling off between November and March.

Hot but dry summers last from April through October, and the winter months tend to be mild. Tel Aviv is warmer, while Jerusalem is a bit cooler during those months and has generally less humidity, even during the summer.

If you are visiting up north, there can be heavy rain and perhaps a bit of snow in the mountain. The desert and Dead Sea do not get any precipitation.

For the best weather during your Israel honeymoon, plan on visiting from May through June and from September through October.

The entire country closes for Rosh Hashana. There is no driving, and there are no planes landing or departing. Unless you have family in Israel with whom to celebrate, this may not be the best time to be there, as nothing will be open. Passover is a toss-up. If you can join someone for a traditional seder diner, you are guaranteed a wonderful time. If that is not the case, you might feel somewhat alone. A lot of restaurants will not sell bread during Passover.

Purim, on the other hand, is a fun holiday and resembles our own Halloween. It’s a carnival with people in dramatic and unique costumes. This takes place in the spring.

Top Things to do in Israel

Akko

This city is also called Acco or Acre. It is 4,000 years old and located on the northern Mediterranean coast of Israel. It’s a bit like Old City in Jerusalem, with lots of ancient history, but you have a fabulous view of the Mediterranean. Akko is continuously being excavated, and new discoveries are always being made. Don’t miss the Halls of the Knights built by the crusaders. Real crusaders lived and dined here, and it’s fun to explore their medieval ways. Akko is all about medieval times, and you will find a reconstructed old market with ancient crafts for sale. 

Channel your inner Indiana Jones and explore the Underground Templar Tunnel, also built during the crusades. The tunnel connects the Templars’ fort with the beach. For an easy escape, or couldn’t the Templars resist a refreshing dip? Speaking of dip, don’t miss a trip to the public Ghattas Bath, the ultimate in two-story luxury, with steam rooms, sauna and massage area. 

The waterfront is perfect for a romantic stroll. Stop by Uri Buri, a famous 400-year-old local eatery that is 400 years old. No worries; the food is fresh.

Mitzpe Ramon

This treasure amid the rugged southern desert is appromimately150 kilometers from both Tel Aviv and Jerusalem.

Many consider this a mere ghost town, but these ghosts are some kind of fabulous. The landscaping is stunning. This town has become such a popular stop, accommodations and restaurants have been sprouting up over the past few years.

Visit the Ramon Crater, preferably with a guide that will take you down to the depths of the Crater itself. At the top, you’ll find a breathtaking vista and herds of wild camel. For some heart-pounding excitement, rappel down the side of the Crater. No need to get nervous just because you are hanging high in the air. 

For something more calming, check out the alpaca and Llama farm. Feeding the animals is allowed, and they seem to expect it.

You can get to Mitzpe Ramon by bus.

Wohl Rose Park

This is the place for romance. The 19-acre park in Jerusalem has 15,000 different types of plants and 400 kinds of roses. There’s even a waterfall to complete the amorous ambiance. Take plenty of honeymoon photos here and create rose-envy back home. 

Hanging Gardens of Haifa

This shrine is comprised of 19 magnificent terraces leading up the north slope of Mount Carmel in northern Israel. Every terrace is designed with trees, flowers, fountains, and pools. The Shrine of the Bab, at the center of the gardens, serves as a remembrance of the Baha’i disciples. The Gardens are flawlessly manicured. There are daily tours through the gardens, which stretch for an entire kilometer. 

Bethlehem

This is the Bethlehem, the birthplace of Jesus. It is located in Palestinian Territories, but it is a mere cab ride away from Jerusalem. As a tourist, entry is no problem. You’ll want to visit the Church of the Nativity. But you might also want some rousing fun at the Frontier Inn Casino. This entertainment center is an American Frontier replica, complete with a hotel, restaurant, and casino. Feeling lucky?

Weather in Israel

The weather rarely gets extreme in Israel, although it is in a subtropical zone. A bigger consideration than the weather while visiting are the major holidays, which may shut down a large part of the country.

As expected, the north tends to be chillier and can drop to freezing in the mountains during the winter months. In the southern region, you can comfortably go swimming throughout the year. The heat reaches its peak in August, when it can top 100 degrees. 

The temperature warms up to the 70s and 80s during the spring month. It’s ideal sightseeing weather. Don’t forget about Passover, when many stores and activities are closed.

August is extremely hot and best spent by the beach. The waters in the Red Sea and the Mediterranean become warm and comfortable for swimming.

The fall is a great time for a visit. The waters have been warmed by the summer heat, and the overall temperature is in the mid to high 80s. It is still warm in November, but it is starting to rain on occasion. The temperature is in the low to mid-80s.

The temperature is mild during the winter months, but it does drop to around 50 degrees. The rains pick up in January, and the seas might be too cool for a swim. Remember that this is the season for Hanukkah, where many stores are closed.
