This kibbutz resort is a great base for exploring the region as it boasts one of the most beautiful beaches on the lake. In fact, that may be its downfall as a lodging because you’ll be tempted to stay put—the warm waters and splendid views of the Galilee hills and the Golan Heights invite lingering. Consider doing that lingering over dinner: the kibbutz is home to its own famous restaurant specializing in fresh St. Peter’s fish, and offers the same lovely views. Accommodations range from simple 5-person family bungalow units to basic, modern motel-style doubles, all with fridge or kitchenettes and set amid pleasant gardens. There’s a minimart on the grounds, and a hearty kibbutz-style dinner buffet available with advance reservation or with a half-board plan.
