We occasionally hop on this beach to look at the water when visiting and walking around Galilee. It's nothing special for adults, but great for kids. Many times we simply sit across from the beach of the rocks and wave to the ferries as they...More

With the break wall, beach has little to no waves. Great watching boats come and going in the channel next to it. There are picnic tables under cover just off the beach.

Small beach front, but surf safer for children, and easy walking distance to numerous restaurants in Galilee. Easily found parking after a rain storm. Enjoyed watching fishing boats and ferries pass by. Ice cream at adjacent Chaplins was fantastic.
