  • One of the components, when visiting the old Jaffa port, small himself and probably only interesting for connoisseurs, but quite atmospheric. Many fish restaurants, with fresh seafood From negative prices in restaurants and smell.

  • You can perfectly stroll among the fishermen's boats, yachts, and heaps of cats waiting for fish. There are cafés and restaurants where you can have a meal with excellent sea views.

  • The port itself is nothing special in my opinion. However, there are fantastic restaurants there and old Jaffa is definitely something special and worth seeing! So you should not abandon the visit!
