There is nice places to walk around, on a nice sunnt day it is nice to take a walk all the way to the sea.
In the summer it is just wonderful to walk around in the shopping streets, people watching, sitting in a coffee shop or tasting from the traditional local fast food.
It is a beach city, perfect for summer fun, good warm daily weather starts from March and lasting till November, for Finnish kids, even winter is mild here :-)
Traditional food, pita bread, falafel, hummus, salads, pickles, just great, and a little bit spicy of course, even the young Finnish kids like it.
Dont be surprise when people invite you to their homes, having you as a guest can be a good reason for spontaneous party
This is very unique place, not only in Israel but for the whole Mediterranean Sea.
The dunes have been developed here for thousands of years, since the creation of the land & sea and the river Nile, but in today’s modern times, with the dam that blocked the Nile in Egypt and the massive modern construction on the coastline, there are not many dunes left and this one is one of the last ones, a nature reserve for one of the most amazing miracles of nature.
Ashdod is an average city by the Mediterranean Sea. For tourist and as for local, the culture and fun here is by the beach. There is few good restaurants here and active nightlife. Local contacts will make it even better to maximise the fun in this place.
