Driving from Tel-Aviv, your first glimpse of Haifa is the rising slopes of Mount Carmel which appear higher than its 550 meters above sea level. The mountain faces the Mediterranean Sea and has been called ‘Israel’s San Francisco Bay Area’. In Spring, over 650 species of plant blossom in the Carmel National Park. The Carmel Mountain Nature Reserve has paths and trails offering scenic routes for hiking and biking, as well as breathtaking lookouts with views spreading all the way to the Upper Galilee.
While Mount Carmel gets more rain than the surrounding areas, the sun seems to beat stronger too. It pays to keep covered when hiking because most people underestimate the powerful rays of the sun which are known to cause skin cancer, even if you put globs of sunscreen on your exposed head, face, and neck. For total coverage of these sensitive areas, only a hat will do.

No trip to Haifa is complete without a trip to the Bahai Gardens. Theses terraced gardens extend all the way up Mount Carmel. At its heart stands the golden-domed Shrine of the Báb, which is the resting place of the Prophet-Herald of the Bahá’í Faith.
If you’ve arrived in Haifa for a joyous occasion, you’re in luck. SherlockS specializes in Hats for Simchas. Getting married? Celebrating a Bar or Bat Mitzvah?

Plus, SherlockS specializes in all sizes for both men and women. Their hats range in size from X-Tra Small to XX (and sometimes XXX) Large.
