About Western Galilee

The Western Galilee aka North Coast of Israel extends along the Mediterranean Sea shoreline for 40 km, from the Carmel Range to Rosh Haniqra on the Israeli border with Lebanon, and inland across the coastal plain for 5-10 km until it reaches the hills of the Upper Galilee and Lower Galilee. It is a relatively isolated and tranquil region of great natural beauty, great opportunities for outdoor fun and full of historical and cultural interest. The "Bahá’i Holy Places in Haifa and the Western Galilee" in the region have been inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List.

Most people speak Hebrew but many residents also speak Arabic, even English and so much more. The people of Israel are very good at understanding other people's accents. Because it is such a diverse state in language and even religions (surprising to some), the people have to be able to communicate with everyone so they get used to listening to and hearing other accents from their own.
