Beit Yanai Beach is one of the most beautiful beaches in Israel. I like it because it is a versatile beach. Besides the sea and the beach, there are different things you can do. For example, frequently there are many kite surfers in this area. The colorful kites make a great photography subject. Moreover, some surfers would be glad if you photographed them.

Furthermore, Alexander Stream meets the sea at Yanai beach. At that point, the water level is usually low. And many birds using this fact to hunt for fish. Thus, if you a bird watcher or animal photographer this could be a great spot too.

Moreover, if you a looking for a place for a sleepover, then there is Bet Yanai Beach campsite (more info about the campsite can be found here).

Update: As of March 2018, the parking at Beit Yanai is free. This refers to day parking. If you would like to stay for a night, then it is still paid. (I saw this notification at many different places online, here is the notification made by Hefer regional council).Beit Yanai Beach

The beach is usually clean and quiet, probably because the Israel Parks and Nature Authority run it. Also, you can camp overnight, and there are reasonably decent facilities, including restrooms, showers and fish restaurant.

The beach is norther than Beit Yanai. Thus, when looking to the south you will see houses of this moshav:

It is usually a quiet beach if you do not come during the swimming season (summer). But on another occasion, we arrived towards the end of summer. And we did this since we wanted to visit the Sand Sculptures Competition.

We were visiting the 21st sand sculptures competition during autumn 2017. The topic of this competition was traveling.Sand Sculptures Competition at Beit Yanai beach, Israel

Most participants were families with kids. And there work looked… well pretty much like something I would manage to do.Sand Sculptures Competition at Beit Yanai beach, Israel

Many people took the traveling theme and created some transportation. But there were others that took it further. Like a woman giving birth to a child who is going to for a life journey.Sand Sculptures Competition at Beit Yanai beach, Israel

Unfortunately, I forgot our kite at home. And I did not want to start building sand sculptures with photo gear next to me. These were the two options my daughter wanted. So I bought a kite. As you can see, they were not cheap, most priced at 70 NIS, but we will probably make use of it in the future as well.Sand Sculptures Competition at Beit Yanai beach, Israel

Summary

Overall, Beit Yanai Beach is one of the most beautiful beaches in Israel. Moreover, you can visit it not only during the summer. Besides swimming, you can hike, go bird watching or even joining the Sand Sculptures Competition. Which by the way was a little disappointing and for the future, I would suggest going to Sand Sculptures Competition in a big city like Tel Aviv or Haifa (hoping the more people there will be, the higher the level of the work will be).
