Summary of the Beach Inspectors

The most northern beach of Israel is near the border to Lebanon. From the beach you have a great view of the lime rock cliffs of Rosh haNikra. This place is known for its many grottos and caves which are a popular tourist destination.

At the main beach is a Banana Beach Club which regularly organises parties. Here you will find a restaurant serving simple food and there are also showers and lifeguards. At the beach is a small campsite, shaded pavilions made of wood and a beach volleyball court. It is mainly young people who come here, as they appreciate the calm, relaxed atmosphere at Betzet Beach

Betzet Beach - The remote beach in the north

Not far from Lebanon lies Betzet Beach. The beach is in Rosh haNikra which is the last town before the border. Rosh haNikra is known for its white lime rock cliffs which you can see from the beach. At the foot of the cliffs the waves of the Mediterranean Sea have eroded the rocks to form grottos and caves which can be accessed via a cable car. There is a footpath stretching for 400 metres through the grottos, which are connected by a tunnel. You should certainly not miss out on this attraction.

What can you expect at Betzet Beach?

Betztet Beach is somewhat outside the town and is therefore best reached by car. Directly at the beach is a car park.

The beach is part of the Banana Beach Club chain which has outlets all over Israel. The restaurant serves snacks, drinks and simple Israeli dishes. There are also toilets and showers at the beach, as well as lifeguards on duty from May to September.

At the beach there are large wooden pavilions providing shade, a beach volleyball court and a campsite which is sheltered from the sun by awnings.

The beach is not cleaned daily and therefore the sand can be slightly dirty in some places, but the water itself is clear and clean.

The main beach, which is the official swimming area, is separated by a fence, but you can walk past it without any problems. The unofficial part of the beach is long, spacious and remote. Here you can go for a long walk along the rocks without meeting anybody else.

For whom is Betzet Beach suitable?

The main beach is a Banana Beach and therefore parties take place regularly here. The beach is especially popular with young people because of its campsite and remoteness. The atmosphere is relaxed and local kitesurfers, windsurfers and surfers like to come here to use up their energy in the water. Conditions are not the best, but the beach is fairly empty during the week, meaning that surfers can indulge in their hobby undisturbed. Your four-legged friends are also welcome at this beach.
