11. Wasini Island, Shimoni

Escape the buzz of everyday life with a visit to Wasini Island, small in size but big in charm and atmosphere. The island features no roads, so pedestrians create the only traffic on rustic footpaths--occasionally, you might spot a local transporting goods on a wheelbarrow. The shortage in amenities is more than made up for in outstanding snorkeling opportunities, offered by the nearby marine park.
