Between Rosh Hanikra and Nahariya in the Western Galilee is Achziv. Achziv is mentioned in the Bible as being one of the cities of the tribe of Asher and it served as an ancient port around which a settlement grew. Achziv today is a national park in which there are lagoons and natural seawater pools. The park combines a rocky coastline, complete with bays, lagoons and natural and artificial seawater pools with archaeological remnants of an ancient settlement. Beneath the clear water one can catch glimpses of water lilies, sea urchins and small octopuses. In the summer time a unique way to spend the night is by sleeping under the sky in this national park.
