You'd have to travel quite a distance to find a prettier beach cove, though this one is just 30 km (18½ miles) south of Haifa. Low-slung buildings separated by lawns with hammocks and just steps from the beach contain standard rooms (many with sea views) and apartments that accomodate up to five people. Breakfast is included in the rate; for other meals you can enjoy seaside eating at the Rozmarin restaurant. Small islets just off the coast attract nesting birds and give
nature watchers plenty to see in spring and fall.
