It is quite interesting as it is a very old building right on the promenade with good views all over the sea/beaches. But, it takes just 5 mins to look at, there is an info sign in Hebrew and English, but it doesn't give much information about the building's history and the Sheik buried there. It doesn't look that well cared for, there are iron gates on one side, the dome on top is crumbling a bit and some rubbish is thrown inside, but if you are passing by then it is worth visiting, but don't go out of your way.

It's a tomb + shrine belonging to sheikh. Or so they say.

Some scholars believe it's a vestige from the unique 13th century Mamluki coastal defense system.

There isn't much to see, and because of the erosion of the bluff there will be even less to see, in the short future.

In the evening the locals can be seen doing various activities along the promenade. In which, the tomb is part of. It was a nice walk with family, was a nice place to picnic.

However, as recent as year or so, I find less enjoyment in the area. There was a restaurant built on the bluff. Ruining the atmosphere, block the awesome view in some places. The restaurant brought the ills with it. People now drive as close as possible to get to the restaurant, when it suppose to be pedestrian place only. Garbage from its kitchen has attracted foxes and dogs for the surrounding area, especially at night. Making the picnic option less enjoyable.

Oh well...there's other stuff to see.

Tomb of Sheikh is just an old building with a little tomb inside that you can't touch or get close enough so this is not much for attraction BUT: the outer place is beautiful!
This is the promenade of the city and in my opinion it's beautiful and relaxing :)

There is nothjing to do at this tomb. However, it is right along the sea, along the pedestrian walk. You can walk from north of the Harlington Inn, for about 2 miles south to the end of Delilah Beach. The walk is beautiful morning, afternoon, and night.

Small semi wrecked old building half way between Holiday Inn and Marina. Unless you have a special reason for wanting to see the Sheik's tomb don't make a special effort to go there. Lots of garbage thrown about.

I remember when the municipality remounted the old place. If it's a tomb they broke the place's originality. But it's a great place to visit. Some places to view the Mediterranean and take photos. On summer go around 18 hrs and you'll see one of the most beautiful sunsets in the world. If you hungry you have in the neighborhood the Goote restaurant in Holliday Inn Hotel and Linda (italian and meat)

I would not make a journey to see this but if you walk past on the promenade then look inside this ruin. It will not occupy more than 5 minutes.

This is a very quick stop along the walk near the marina. The Tomb itself is in an unlit area, and I visited in the evening, so it was hard to see. It was unfortunate that the outside has been harmed by some paint. Beautiful structure though, and amazing history to visit.
