Kaiafas Lake & Thermal Springs
Occupying a stunning piece of coastline, this unique lake has an ecosystem that includes a large number of migratory and nonmigratory birds, fish and wildlife. Those who know their Bible will recognize the lake's name as that of one of the persecutors of Jesus—the legend is that Kaiafas washed his hands in the lake and contaminated it, giving it its thermal qualities and sometimes sulfurous smell. You can bathe in the waters at a spa, or take advantage of the great sandy beach nearby.
