The North Coast of Israel extends along the Mediterranean Sea shoreline for 40 km, from the Carmel Range to Rosh Haniqra on the Israeli border with Lebanon, and inland across the coastal plain for 6 km until it reaches the hills of the Upper Galilee. It is a relatively isolated and tranquil region of great natural beauty, great opportunities for outdoor fun and full of historical and cultural interest. The "Bahá’i Holy Places in Haifa and the Western Galilee" in the region have been inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List.

Most people speak Hebrew but many residents also speak Arabic, even English and so much more. The people of Israel are very good at understanding other people's accents. Because it is such a diverse state in language and even religions (surprising to some), the people have to be able to communicate with everyone so they get used to listening to and hearing other accents from their own.
Israel's main train line serves the cities along the coast.
By road, you should take highways 2 (south of Haifa) or 22 (north of Haifa) which are motorways, or highway 4 which is a more local road.
- Sea to Sea hike
There are guest houses available in Akko, and numerous options for lodging in Haifa. Additionally, kibbutz can be found all over Israel and offer the chance to pay for your lodging by working on the kibbutz itself.
