The caves at Qumran in Israel are best known as the settlement nearest the site where the famous Dead Sea Scrolls (nearly a thousand texts from the Hebrew Bible and extra-biblical documents found between 1947 and 1956) were discovered, but the surrounding area has many opportunities for rest and relaxation.

Einot Zukim. Famous for its freshwater springs and spring-fed pools, the Einot Zukim Nature Reserve is an ideal place for a picnic. The swimming is lovely and the area is surrounded with species of trees that rarely flourish under desert conditions, making it a proper oasis.
