Nitzanim Park No votes yet
The Nitzanim Sand Dune Park is located close to the city of Ashdod and is a good representation of the landscape on which most of Israel
was constructed by pioneers following the various waves of Aliyah and the establishment of the state in 1948. Until only a number of decades ago sand dunes dominated the coast of Israel but with time cities, industrial areas and power plants have taken over and the dune landscape is rapidly disappearing. The largest remaining stretch of coastal sand dunes is the one that exists between the cities of Ashdod and Ashkelon. The Society for the Protection of Nature in Israel has initiated a drive to protect the remaining sand dunes due to the importance and uniqueness of the area. The Nitzanim Dune Park extends over eleven square kilometers. The park combines one of the most beautiful coasts in Israel, vegetation and a clean shore. How to get there: From the Ashdod-Ashkelon Road (Road 4). About a half kilometer north of the Eshkolot Junction turn west (right for those coming from Ashdod) on to Nitzanim Shore, Road 1363.
