“Anchor point”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

A good anchor point which is easy to use for navigation purposes - kind of an in-land lighthouse. The tower itself is quite nice looking; however it is necessary to learn some history to fully understand why it is regarded as a point of interest in TA. Does not need no extra time at all as an attraction; enough to pass it by on your way to or from Old Jaffa.

“Good Starting Point”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013

The Clock Tower is a good starting point for a tour of Touristic & Artistic Old Jaffa.
The tower by itself is not much of an interest, but good landmark located at the beginning of several Tourist Attractions in the surrounding area. You may begin your tour at at the bottom of the Ancient City Jaffa, or go to your right and 1st visit the old Jaffa Port with its restaurants along the water, and then again go forward and start at the famous Jaffa Flea-market (the biggest in the country). Basically it is the Starting Base for a few important tourist landmark. and great meeting point in case you get lost.

“Ho-hum...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

A historical throwback to the Ottoman rule. Not much of a clock tower, but it is a good starting point and a useful landmark when navigating around Old Jaffa. Not much to see in its immediate vicinity. However, the flea market is at the rear and there are several shops, restaurants and the Old Jaffa port within walking distance.

“It's a clock. On a tower. Wow... .”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

The clock tower would take you 5 minutes (max) to appreciate and start off your visit to old Jaffa.
Nothing much to see, though.
