"Negev in bloom" Israel Things to Do Tip by leffe3

Israel Things to Do: 781 reviews and 1,392 photos

For 2-3 weeks in the year (approx March) the approaches to the Negev desert are covered in carpets of wildflowers (mainly red anemones).

It's a beautiful sight, especially knowing that less than 20kms away the desert is almost inhospitable. Hundreds of cars head south from Tel Aviv and Jerusalem to see the sight - and it is stunning.

Address: Bitronot Be'eri Reserve
Directions: Route 232, 10kms south of Sderot

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
