a nice beach area but not yet TOP

this is a nice beach area and really close to the center and port of Haifa, you can mingle with the locals, not many tourists around. The area is upcoming and soon will be less authentic !

Beautiful Beach
Jan 2019 • Solo
This part of the coast/beach is a bit different than the beach just a bit south. You can walk along the lovely new walking path that stretches from here to the Carmel Beach. The waves are different and just a different feel. The houses/apartments come right up to the beach.

Quiet beach; rarely any jellyfish
Oct 2018 • Solo
This is a quiet beach frequented by families and older people. Most of it is a small bay sheltered from waves. There is also a section with waves where some people surf.
Possibly because of the local currents, there are rarely jellyfish here, even when other beaches in Israel and even in Haifa are infested with stinging jellyfish (meduzot) for a month or more.
The locker rooms have warm water showers, unlike most other local beaches, which have only cold showers.

Better than average; quiet

I find Bat Galim to be very scenic.
You can see and hear waves crashing on the rocks.
There are a few restaurants on the promenade and more on the main road.
There were more at one time.
Go if you want quiet. Spend an hour or two.
I'm not sure why this isn't more popular.

A Great Family Beach
Aug 2018 • Solo
I like Bat Galim Beach because of the bay, which helps keep the big waves outside. It is a good place to swim as well as to relax on the beach. Parents can play with their children there. It is simple, as there is only one kiosk around the corner, but not far away there is an awesome ice cream/café as well.

A beach you can actually swim in
Jul 2018 • Family
If you want to dip your body and take a selfie, theres prettier and wider beaches. Bat Galim's small beaches offer something surprisingly unique: pool like conditions.
The beaches are calm and a good swimmer can swim even beyond the breakwaters (but the water gets colder). These beaches are packed in summer weekends (school holiday seasons) so come really early for a quiet swim with the sunrise. By 9 am, the two small swimming beaches are jam-packed.

Coarse sand, lots of algae, dirty
Jun 2018 • Solo
I went to a vacation in Haifa and looked for a hotel near a beach speficially because I wanted to spend as much time at the beach as possible.

What a disappointment!

The beach is littered, the sand is coarse, the water is murky from all the algae and that makes it impossible to see where you are stepping.

I hurt my foot stepping on some stones and nearly fell.

Not to mention that there are fish there that actually bite you!

I went to a beach once where there were those fish and it was a tickling, fun sensation.

These fish were (possibly) bigger and stronger, because their bites actually HURT!

Also, I swam either into a jelly fish or a plastic bag.

And a stray cat did his business right next to my towel.

Will definitely never visit that beach again.

The only good thing I can say about it is that the water temperature was pleasant.

Beach with fine sand but very narrow. Access to seawater is limited to the area where there are rescuers. Approximately 20 meters are access, then 50-60 meters without access, then 20 meters with access. In total 6 such access points. Horrible! There are green areas where you can stay at the beach. I recommend them because the sand is with various miseries - packs, cigarettes, etc.
