Wondering exactly what we would find in Jisr al-Zarqa, we were greeted by a knowledgable staff, and once we ventured outside, the people were just as nice.
The accommodations and location proved fantastic, with the hostel centrally located in the town and a 10-minute walk from the beach. The place was clean, complete with a small kitchen and a communal fridge & coffee machine. In addition, they have a cappuccino machine downstairs in a cafe-like lobby.
The neighborhood itself, while definitely not like neighboring Caesarea, is authentically Arab with a neighboring grocery store and multiple hummus joints. The food is inexpensive and the owners gracious, so stick in Jisr al-Zarqa for meals.
Since the Israel trail runs straight through the town, the nature is fantastic. The stream to the north is a beautiful walk and the beach is open and spacious.
The guesthouse and the town go hand-in-hand: friendly, safe and fun. Get to know the locals, they're friendly and speak both Hebrew and Arabic. Stay, eat, socialize and enjoy!More
