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.

Hello reader. My name is Charlotte Noris and I am sure that you will definitely enjoy my blog. Do you know why? All because on the pages you will see bright and colorful photos, as well as useful information. My husband and I are freelancers, so we can travel at any time of the year.
For myself, I most often plan tours in advance, but it also happens that the trip turns out to be spontaneous when I see an interesting place and a nice price. At the age of 35, I have visited more than 30 countries and do not plan to stop there. I want to visit all continents and the most secret corners of our planet.
