Achziv Beach - Sea Turtles


Recommended by: Naomi Levi

"We were there last year in August, if you have any specific questions...we stayed at the field school and booked from there to go with a guide from the national parks to the beach at sunset to watch the turtles hatch and then scamper into the beach. The guide also gave the kids a talk on crabs and other sea life and caught some crabs. It was great!"

Shaina Tanenbaum Abraham:

We had a wonderful day today at Rosh HaNikra and then at Achziv beach. Just FYI, we got a two tickets (1+1) for Rosh HaNikra with a code from Isracard and we got a small discount on the other tickets with our Matmon card. Achziv beach was 50% off with the Achziv park and it was really beautiful! I loved that the bathing area was all surrounded by breakers so it was super calm and not too deep (of course, there were no waves to jump so that was a little sad.) Amazing all around!

Deborah Dickson: what age children were with you?


Shaina Tanenbaum Abraham: Ten year old twins and a 20 month old baby.

Shaina Tanenbaum Abraham: Meant to say Achziv beach was 50% off with the Matmon card. (LoveLoveIsrael Deal: Get your Card at a Discount here)

Nicole Goldman:
And that was plenty for a day, right? No turtles needed...
 
Shaina Tanenbaum:
Abraham Nicole Goldman No turtles needed! But I would still like to see them another time. With a 2.5 hour drive each way, there was no time for the turtles!

Chana N Shmuel Veffer:
We had a great time with the golf cart we rented at Rosh HaNikra to explore the Achziv and Bezet Beaches.

Shem Tov
anyone know more about when this is?

Lori Rabinowitz Hirsch:
If Shem Tov doesn't know about it- does it really exist?

Shem Tov: 
Oh, I know about it, I'm just not sure exactly when it is...

Tali Tarlow:
Last year it was in August, and it is supposed to be amazing. The Achziv Field School are the ppl to contact about it.

Shem Tov: 
Thanks, I'll try to figure it out :)

Deborah Dickson:
What was accommodation like? How old were your children?
 
Shem Tov:
Yeah, gimme all the details that you can - please, of course! 

Naomi Levi:
The accommodation is at the field school...it is nice, clean and basic...kind of like a kibbutz room, with 2 single beds and 3 bunk beds and a bathroom. It is across the road from the beach and nice and quiet and away from the crowds since ...

that sounds amazing. It's called Achziv field school? When in August is this?

Naomi Levi: 
There are about 5 to 10 Field Schools over Israel with accomodation all next to amazing nature areas. They are run by the Society for the Protection of Nature - http://teva.org.il/english/fieldschools. If you plan to go to a few in a year, it is worth getting annual membership as you get discounts on the accommodation and the tours. WE went in mid August I think.

Tikva Sasson:
We live near Achziv , can we join the program without staying at the Field School?

Naomi Levi:

I think so- when we did it, about half the people came from the accommodation and the rest met us there. But you still need to book through the Society for Protection of Nature I think as the guide was organised by them

Shem Tov:
I got replies from the Field School - it is in August but they aren't sure when exactly because it depends on the turtles. He also said that it costs 15-20 shekel per person for the event. I'm gonna contact them again come the proper season. Thanks for the help Naomi
   
Abbi Adest: 
Naomi, do you remember if the FS is packed with groups in August? I'd like to try to book a few days for my fam. Sounds fabulous.

Naomi Levi:

There were groups of families there together (ie 4 or 5 families that are friends  but no kids or tour groups... though we were there on a Friday and Saturday night, so not sure what mid week is like

Maya Molly:
Achziv beach, best beach hands down... it has an amazing protected cove (perfect for toddler wading) and is GORGEOUS, feels like being at a resort, plenty of shade, blue water, good snorkling, etc.
