Is there any place in Israel where you can enjoy walking in huge forests/parks?

And there are some more wishes (not compulsory, but very expected):

  • it should be by the sea
  • it should be cheap to visit
  • it should be in walking distance from city where you can find hotels, restaraunts (or take a city bus to get there)

I hope you to share your real travelling experience or this is your homeland

    Huge and Israel don't compute together, unless you're a fan of the desert...

  • Have you at least tried with Google? 'cause at least just the first few thousands results answer your question...

  • @JonathanReez, "huge" with respect to Israel. I meant not only ten trees, but at least a place where you can feel you are not in the city, you are outdoors. May 29, 2017 at 11:52

    @motoDrizzt, I hope there is someone who have already traveled at such places or lives there (travel.stackexchenge is the fast way to get verified information) May 29, 2017 at 12:00

    @IvanGerasimenko ok, that's understandable. But many of the answers in this case could be "I'll google it for you, then post an answer" ;-) If you are asking for first hand, confirmed experiences, you should explicit it in the question body ;-)

From your description the only place that comes close is the Carmel Mountain National Park in Haifa:

  • You can see the sea from the park
  • It's free to visit
  • It's surrounded by city streets so you can take a regular city bus to get there
