1. Aqueduct Beach

Tour guides use words like “breathtaking” and “unimaginable” to describe this unique beach located north of the old city of Caesarea. Clear water and clean sands might make this beach on its own, but the really fascinating aspect of this beach is the ancient Roman Aqueduct ruins (originally built two thousand years ago under the reign of King Herod) that mark its inland edge. At once imposing and inspiring for its reminder of the power of human ingenuity, the ruins make the trip to this beach worth it, even if limited lifeguard hours mean bathing isn’t always allowed.
