Geva Carmel (Hebrew: גֶּבַע כַּרְמֶל, lit. Carmel Hill) is a moshav in northern Israel. Located near Atlit, it falls under the jurisdiction of Hof HaCarmel Regional Council. In 2006 it had a population of 851.

The moshav was established in 1949 by immigrants from Tunisia and Turkey, including Moshe Sardines, who later served as a member of the Knesset for Mapai.

Built east of the village of al-Sarafand, it was named and built on the land the depopulated Palestinian village of Jaba', about 1 km northwest of the village site.[1][2]
