Fodor's Review

Very popular with families, this observation point has a high admission charge, but the perks make it worthwhile. The highlight is the opportunity to walk on wooden paths extending into the water. You may see a dolphin leaping, but more likely you'll see groups snorkeling with dolphins. If you feel like trying it yourself, it costs about NIS 290 per person. In addition to a spacious sandy beach punctuated with billowing palms and bright tropical flowers, chairs and umbrellas are available (but get there early to avoid crowds.) There's an indoor café-bar to escape the sun, a great gift shop, and even a video you can watch to learn about dolphins.
