Pinsteps. Atlit Beach

The beach area is not fenced and does not require payment. The most successful can be a walking walk along the sea from the equipped beaches of Haifa and, in particular, from the "Student" beach. A bit of an interesting story: after the First World War, the new Yishuv decided to create a commission on the seas and reservoirs. The purpose of the creation of such a commission was the desire to develop maritime economy and maritime trade. To implement such an idea, it was decided to agitate the Jews of the coastal regions of Eastern Europe and the Caucasus to repatriate and settle the coastal regions of the future Israel. The Atlita region was one of the priorities. A fishing settlement was established in the ancient fortress of the Crusaders. It succeeded in fishing and marine life, but died from the rampant malaria in these places. By the way, it is not possible to see the ruins of the Crusader castle. In the fifties of the last century, a training base for Israeli special naval paratroopers "Shaetet 13" was located here. Translated with Google Translate

Здравствуйте! Добро пожаловать в мои экскурсии! Я как-то понял, что погулять с каждым я не успею, гулять в группах мало кому сейчас хочется, а гулять «вслепую» быстро становится скучно. Так и появилась идея записывать маршруты и создавать полноценные путеводители, которые я здесь собираю. Если вы попали сюда, значит вам нужен ключик, чтобы открыть маршрут – пожалуйста! Напишите мне сообщение на телефон +972 537907561 или на epraisman@gmail.com и я с радостью вам помогу! Иначе, зачем я всё это делаю?

Atlit whizin one day

Atlit is a small town south of Haifa. In the shadow of the capital of North, Atlit is an unremarkable province. However, acquaintance with this place will amaze us with the diversity and depth of the events that took place here. Let's start, oddly enough, with the cemetery. Knights and pilgrims are buried there. This is the only cemetery in the Middle East from the Crusades' time in such good condition. Then our path will run to the refugee camp, which has become an immigration museum. Here we are, witnesses, for the incredible fate of people, secret paths of illegal immigration, and a really recreated atmosphere of those years: the presence of barbed wire, guard towers, disinfection, and wooden barracks tarred by the scorching sun. Then, after a short picnic, we will climb to the ruins of the Crusader fortress De Strua. These are the only sites associated with the history of the Crusades that can be visited in Atlit today. And finally, we will go to the secret azure lagoon, where you can swim and find the shells of the famous mollusk, which gave itself the most expensive and prestigious paint of the ancient world - purple.
