Things to Do in Haifa

Baha'i Gardens and Golden Dome
Climbing up the slope of Mount Carmel, this geometric complex of gardens surrounds the Golden Dome, the resting place of the Prophet-Herald of the Bahá’í Faith. Each of the nine terraces is immaculately groomed, with gravelled paths alongside flower beds and hedges. As you stroll the gardens, the city and the Mediterranean sparkle below you.
Louis Promenade
Stroll along tree-lined Louis Promenade for sweeping views across Haifa. The bay sparkles below you, pink bougainvillaea dotting the path. There are benches for relaxing and playgrounds for the kids. You'll also get views over the romantic Bahá'í Gardens, which is adjacent to the promenade and makes for a lovely stop after your walk.
Dado Beach
This pretty sandy strip is fitted out with everything you need for a perfect beach day. There are umbrellas and chairs along the shore, a boardwalk packed with restaurants, pubs and coffee shops, and even free WiFi. The dance arena hosts weekly public dances and there are playgrounds for the little ones. Disabled visitors will find easy access via ramps.

Tremendous variety of cafes and restaurants. Friendly people and almost all speak English. Plenty to see and do from beaches to view points to shopping malls! Good public transport but a car is necessary. Although parking is vey difficult!

What I really hated was the taxi drivers ripped you off and if you were not aware of the real fair they charged you double ubpnless you you bargained with them befor you sit in the taxi.

It is a magnificent city with tremendous unrealized potential. This has never been actualized.There are not enough activities to keep visitors here and this should be improved to foster tourism.

The beaches are great - for swimming, promenade walks, sunbathing, restaurants. Restaurants near the Baha'i Gardens are great.

Haifa itself is a beautiful city and is within an hour's drive of many other sightseeing highlights

Walking along many view-walks near the sea and above on the Carmel, near the hotel.

Shawatina Restaurant by Stella Marris is excellent

The German Colony, The Baha'i Gardens

Easy accessed great shopping malls.
