Photo of the Week – Dor Habonim beaches

This photo is at sunset at one of my favorite Israeli, Mediterranean coast beaches. Just south of Haifa called Hof Habonim, it is part of a coastal nature reserve under the Israel Parks Authority. There are two natural lagoons protected by natural rock jetties, picturesque and calm.

The technical details – the photo was taken with a Canon point and shoot camera in October (ISO 50, 12.5mm, F3.5 at 1/160 sec).

If you tire of hanging out at the beach there is a lovely walk along the coast south to the beach at Dor-Nachsholim. There you can rent sea kayaks, check out the excavations at the tel and visit the Mizgaga museum. The museum, housed in the 1891 factory that attempted to manufacture wine bottles for Baron de Rothschild’s wines, displays regional and nautical archaeological finds.
