Nice beach with amenities

Visiting for the day while on a cruise. Cab ride was $8 each way and a $5 fee to enter the beach. It wasn't too busy and it was very relaxing.

However, Magen's Bay certainly offers a wide stretch of clean, beautiful beach. It's well cared for and there are facilities. Unfortunately for me, the water wasn't clear when we were there,...

Had a lot of fun here. Great for running as it is off the streets (which we not not recommend running on). We went into the nature paths and along the water. We did two loops which was about 3.5 miles. Everyone is friendly. Bring your suits so you can enjoy the beach. Aparantly there is a nude beach on... More

I saw the taxi driver give our thirty dollars which makes me... More

Beautiful beach and water. We did not have enough time at the beach, because it was part of an excursion to really enjoy it.
