We sailed from Crete to Israel and stayed at Herzilya Marina. It is a modern marina and very comfortable there, especially with the outdoor concerts once a week and beaches right next to the marina. We stayed 3 weeks in the marina and also visited places throughout Israel and Palestine.
The sail from Crete was easy as it is mostly downwind and took 4 days. Sailing back to Marmaris, Turkey
was quite a beat and took about 12 hours longer.
I would highly recommend sailing to Israel to visit a fascinating country.
I hope this helps.
