With the recent policy change in the Maldives no longer welcoming Israeli tourists, the Israel Embassy in India has stepped in with a heartwarming invitation to explore some of India’s most beautiful and hospitable beach destinations. Indian beaches offer not only breathtaking landscapes but also a rich cultural experience and warm hospitality that will make Israeli tourists feel right at home.

Based on recommendations from Indian diplomats who have experienced these destinations firsthand, here are some idyllic beach paradises waiting to be explored:

  • Lakshadweep: This archipelago of 36 islands, nestled in the turquoise waters of the Arabian Sea, offers an escape to tranquility. Pristine beaches, coral reefs teeming with marine life, and a laid-back atmosphere make Lakshadweep a haven for relaxation and rejuvenation.

  • Goa: Renowned for its golden sands, pulsating nightlife, and vibrant beach shacks, Goa caters to diverse preferences. From indulging in water sports to exploring historical sites steeped in Portuguese colonial heritage, Goa promises an unforgettable experience.

  • Andaman and Nicobar Islands: This island chain in the Bay of Bengal presents a breathtaking tapestry of rainforests, limestone caves, and secluded beaches. Explore the vibrant coral reefs, embark on snorkeling and diving adventures, or simply unwind on pristine coastlines, all amidst the embrace of nature’s beauty.

  • Kerala: God’s Own Country, as Kerala is aptly called, offers a unique beach experience. Backwaters fringed by coconut palms, serene beaches ideal for Ayurveda retreats, and a rich cultural tapestry await you.

These destinations are just a glimpse of the incredible beach experiences India has to offer. The Indian embassy assures Israeli tourists a warm welcome, delectable cuisine, and a plethora of cultural and historical attractions to explore beyond the beaches.
