Ge'a (Hebrew: גֵּיאָה) is a moshav in southern Israel. Located three kilometres south-east of Ashkelon near Beit Shikma and Talmei Yafeh, it falls under the jurisdiction of Hof Ashkelon Regional Council. In 2006 it had a population of 630.

The moshav was founded in 1950 by immigrants from Czechoslovakia and Hungary, and was named after the abandoned Arab village of al-Jiyya, on whose ruins it was built.
