Marina - Herzelia Spot Guide

About Marina - Herzelia

Usually a winter spot, the Marina Herzliya shines on those big, stormy days when every spot around is blown out, since the breaking waves go through the deep-water channel at the entrance of the Marina. Usually an A-frame beachbreak kind of wave that, with protection from the Marina itself to the south, can handle almost any southerly wind up to 30 kts.
