Beach at Haifa

Recommended Posts

The municipal beaches are easily accessible.

The nicest in my opinion is the stretch of beaches to the south east of the city - from north to south, they are Carmel Beach, Dado Beach and the Students' Beach. They are sandy, and the northern two are well developed. Reachable using BRT line #1 from the terminal, get off at Ha'Etzel stop for Carmel Beach or the last stop (Hof HaCarmel) for Dado Beach. It operates all week, including during the Shabbat.

Closer to the cruise terminal you have the Bat Galim beaches. The stretch starts behind the port breakwater, after the navy base. It is within walking distance (about 15-20 minutes), which can be reduced by taking the same BRT #1 to Dolphin Junction stop. They aren't as nice in my opinion as the southern beaches, but have a life guard on duty off season as well.

Municipal beaches are free to enter, but beach chairs etc need to be rented. Do not go into the water if there is a black flag posted on the life guard's station.

For a more unique / adventurous beach day, you can consider going to either Akhziv/Achziv or Dor national parks. Getting to either by public transit is trickier but doable. Google to see if you like that type of place.
