With the break wall, beach has little to no waves. Great watching boats come and going in the channel next to it. There are picnic tables under cover just off the beach.

Small beach front, but surf safer for children, and easy walking distance to numerous restaurants in Galilee. Easily found parking after a rain storm. Enjoyed watching fishing boats and ferries pass by. Ice cream at adjacent Chaplins was fantastic.

Small beach accessible right at George's of Gaille, parking is limited so go early. Plenty of parking up the street. This beach is great for families with small kids. Food available and seating along river to boat watch and fish.

I love to take my great grandkids here. Last year I took my 2 y/o great grandson. The water is warm, the waves are gentle and the beach is fairly shallow and safe for the little ones. They also enjoy watching all the boats go...More
