Susita Beach - A natural beach for camping
Susita Beach lies on the east side of the Sea of Galilee in the north of Israel. It is a stony beach about 500 metres long, which belongs to the kibbutz and the Ein Gev Holiday Resort.
A kibbutz is a rural collective settlement which provides for itself and has a basic democratic structure. Ein Gev has about 350 residents and lies in the territory of Golan, which was conquered by Israel in 1967, not far from the Golan Heights. The residents live mostly from farming, but tourism is also playing an increasing role.
A stony camping beach
You can find a car park close to the beach where you can leave your hire-car in the shade for a fee. The beach is open from April until the end of October.
As there are a lot of rocks and stones at Susita Beach, you shouldn’t forget to pack your bathing shoes. Due to its vast size, Susita Beach is particularly good for taking walks.
This beach is ideal for families and groups of friends who want to spend a quiet afternoon at the beach. Several picnic tables are provided directly in front of the beach, where the locals like to sit and enjoy the food that they have brought along. Some of them come here in their campervans. They enjoy the relaxed atmosphere and spending an afternoon having a barbeque together at the beach. Most of them settle down in the shade of the numerous eucalyptus trees, which provide a bit of shelter in an otherwise relatively untouched bay. Here you can enjoy a wonderful view of the Sea of Galilee and just completely relax.
If you forget to bring food and drink with you, you will find a kiosk which provides snacks as well as hot and cold drinks.
Water-sports on the Sea of Galilee
For the active ones amongst you, this is also a great place for windsurfing and kitesurfing, but you should remember to bring your own equipment because there is no local water-sports provider here.
