Gentle waves lap the cove of this patrolled sandy beach in northern Haifa, a few blocks northeast of the lower cable-car station. It's small but popular with sunbathers and yogis and there are often enough waves to surf. There are snack stands and toilets.

It's located in the middle-class Bat Galim neighbourhood, the terminus of Metronit line 2, a few hundred metres from Rambam hospital.
