A large freshwater lake situated on a northern part of the Israeli-Jordanian border, Sea of Galilee offers visitors scenic hiking, swimming, and boating opportunities. Featured prominently in ancient Jewish and Christian scripture, the sea served as the site of much of Jesus Christ's ministry in the Gospels. Today the lake provides a source of fresh water to Israeli homes and attracts flocks of visitors to its shores. Taste fresh fish at restaurants on the lake's edge, walk along the pier in Tiberias, or board a boat for a tour from the water. Use Inspirock's suggestions to plan your Tiberias trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.

Was there in 2000 and 2002, an outright beautiful place to visit
Sea of Galilee is great- its waters are warm, it has a lot of history, and a lot of religious significance as well. Be careful though- there are some strong currents that pull you into the lake. Also, the beaches are mostly made of small rocks, so I would recommend wearing sandals that are secured to your feet.
