Drive north from Tel-Aviv to the 'Colony' ('Mandarin') hotel ('Country Beach'). Drive 11/2 kms north parallel to the fence on the cliff-top dirt-road until you see the dirt 'ramp' down to the entrance gate. Surf in front of the lifeguard`s station.

Park on the dirt 'ramp'near the entrance gate. In the summer seasonn (May thru` October) it`s a segregated beach for religious jews (1 day males, 1 day females & so-on). Friday, before the Sabbath & the Sabbath (Saturday)you can surf there. Guys can surf on 'males-only' days & babes can surf on 'females-only' days.The lifeguards are all surfies so this beach is cool to surf at! The beach picks-up on big winter swells,but it`s difficult to paddle to the outside if the waves are knarly (ther`s no channel there!).On good days, when waves are between 1 metre & over on-the-face, you can drop-in 400 metres from the beach & get a good clean-wall ride front & backside until the beach. Occasionaly you`ll get a tube mostly early morning whilst the wind is offshore. The evenings (& the daytime)are good when there`s no wind. This is an ideal beach to teach the teenie-weenies to surf 1st with a boogie & then stand-up.The atmosphere @ this beach is mega-friendly & @ the weekends families come here to chill-out. If the religious guys show a curiosity to your surfing madness talk to him & explain the feelings you get surfing. Encourage him to have-a-go, help him & the positive result will 'warm-yer-soul'! When there`s no surfing waves here it`s usually good here for the gromm`s skimboarding freak-outs!
'Ucla'(wonderful) place & safe for gromms.Eddy runs the cafe their & he really likes the gromms & the 'old-farts' (like me!)& Gidy the lifeguard is a 'saint'!
Because the lifeguards are surfies, there is never any 'black-flag madness'. The locals are usually gromms who grew -up @ this beach & they`re really cool. No 'mega-extrovert-psycho-case-superstar-surfies' here maties, never!!

Ha Nifrad - Segregated Beach - Although the beach is segregated it`s a sheer pleasure to see hundreds of religious families REALLY enjoying the sea. The chief lifeguard Daniel is ultra pious & a full-on "soul-surfer" & the hope is that more-and-more religious guys & girls will experience the joy of surfing!

well, this spot - this spot is a very good one and being so near the Dromy beach it helps reduce crowdness. I disagree with my fellow "commentot", as there is a channel...right next to the fence thate separets the beach from the Dromy. Its not hard to get in at all. peace
