The most interesting plant in the coastal strip is crystal grass or ice grass. This plant got this name from the salt crystals on the surface of its fleshy leaves. It is customary to add them to salad, so crystal grass is very much appreciated among restaurateurs and chefs. But do not delude yourself seeing the iced grass in these places. The entire coast of Atlit is a nature reserve, and any plant collection and fishing is prohibited here. Another thing is the territory of the crusader cemetery. They are located outside the nature reserve.
