When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This beach is operated by the nature and Parks Authority and is part of the Dor Habonim natrure reserve. There are a few rocky bays full of seashells and a small cravice called 'the Blue Cave'. The beach itself is clean and pleasant and is suitable for families. Perfect for long romantic walks along this beautiful coastal reserve. It's possible also to spend the night and pitch a tent at the beach. Highly recommended !

this is one of the most exciting, if not the top of the beautiful beach stretches in Israel . stunning and striking beauty of nature combined with a lot of ancient history.
it starts in the ancient important city of Dor a Phoenician important town surrounded by a wall with a small port(natural, with beautiful small lagoons, and excellent beaches.
head north upto the Hbonim reserve along the beachfront, you will never regret it.
you better read about the history of this important town and their unique patent, of extraction ink dye from tiny sea snails , which was used to paint clothes .

Well, it was quite a rough drive on a poorly maintained road to get there, but it was worth it. This beach is clean, well maintained and very peaceful. A walk through a thick layer of shells into the warm waters of the Mediterranean to enjoy a lazy swim in an alcove surrounded by rocky borders was just what we needed to relax.

This is a unique beach, not too long - 5 KM (3 miles) that has nice scenery as well as archaeology. The Northern part at Habonim is the nice swimming area and the Southern part is the Old city of Dor.
In between its a nice and easy walk - don't miss the Tulips blossoming on Feb-March!

Real beauty and nature. Stopped by w my fam on the way south - clean and stunning - one of the best beaches I've ever been to. Was there on shabbat - so the snack shops were closed, but there was a Druze couple on the road to the entrance that was making some fantastic foods (breads loaded up w za'atar, grape leaves, et al.

A destination place.

One of the best beaches in Israel.
Natural lagoon, the water is very calm and clean , the beach services are relatively good compared to others in Israel.
Although lots of people you will find a place for your family.
The sand needs cleaning but further than that the best !

Long stretch of sandy beach, wade pools and prodruding rocks make this one of the best beaches to hang out at, take long strolls along, and simply explore.

Seriously, our family love this beach so please keep away ;-)
Just an hour away from Tel-Aviv by car you arrive at a long stretch of beach with shallow waters. A chalk and dead corals little island just across it which adult can walk to in the sea is a heaven for those who like to find shrimps and little crabs in the rock pools. You can also strall along the beach and on it northern side you'll find water sports club.

One of the nicest beaches (nature reserves) in Israel. At some locations sandy beach (between Maagan Michael and Nachsholim) and between Nachsholim and Habonim, the beach is rocky.
In spring time, there is beautiful blossom
