Surrounded by old Jaffa and on the border with Tel-Aviv. This is a great place to visit and just relax. Grab something to eat and watch the ocean.

The ancient Jaffa inside the city walls is just a number of small houses on the slope towards the sea. It is still possible to see the ancient harbour, and to the right from it, the legendary Andromeda's rock where Andromeda was rescued from the...More
