  • An amazing park for the whole family. A huge park that is suitable for the entire family, with amazing views, restaurants, and a fine and pleasant entertainment. Recommended to visit.  more »
  • The entrance to the car park is chargeable-28 NIS per person. But it's worth it. Take a walk through the ancient arch in the world, to see the ancient temples, an amphitheater. Very green, you can picnic, there are wells with water. Beach, where allowed to bathe-changing rooms, toilets, shower with fresh water-all are! Incredible sand on the beach-small, white. Clear, warm sea. Highly recommend

  • Nice place, has W.C and the sea is just nearby. Quite crowded and noisy on some occasions like independent day.
  • Perfect place to travel or do barbeque, nice beach
  • Nice green park with interesting historic places. The beach is rather good but doesn't have breakwater
  • The place is fine. Very crowded on weekends, could be better taken cared of.
  • Nice looking but not too interesting
