Akko beach as the name suggests is next to Akko. I’ve visited most tourist attractions in Acre (Akko). Check them out at Akko tag.

Today we will visit Akko beach next to Nahal Na’aman. Nahal (river) Na’aman meets the Mediterranean sea several km from Acre. On this Friday evening I’ve decided to go there and take photos. This place has two different photo opportunities: landscape and birds.

Map of the area:

I’ve parked next to Palm Beach Hotel and Country Club (on the south side) and walked around to towards the beach.

Actually the dunes are not high, about 0.5 a meter. I’ve took this photo from low angle in order to make them look bigger.

The train that connect Northern part of Israel with the central one also passes there. Here are the rails with Carmel mountain in background:

On the spot where Nahal Na’aman flows into the sea there are usually many birds. This is true not only for this river, but for others as well (for example: Alexander river). I guess the reason are that the rivers aren’t big. They are actually quite shallow in the meeting point. And this gives the birds good opportunity for fishing.

There are many seagulls in this area. But in Israel they are much smaller than their European cousins. In Israel seagulls roughly the size of a dove, while on some countries (Norway for example) seagulls are about the same size as a chicken.

And here is the view from the river:
