Ashkelon has the most beautiful marina in Israel, and you will certainly fall in love with its promenade, which runs along the cliff overlooking the sea and sandy beaches. You will enjoy all kinds of watersports here, but also a variety of cultural events.
Traces of the past have been carefully preserved and can be observed among modern buildings all over Ashkelon. The Outdoor Museum near the Municipal Cultural Center offers excellent examples of this past, displaying two marble Roman burial coffins with intricate reliefs depicting mythological scenes. Another interesting landmark that testifies the rich history of the city is the 13th century Tomb of Sheikh Awad, a fortified structure dating from the Mameluke era. Of note, the Canaanite Gate on the Canaanite rampart was excavated in the 1990s.
Askelon is a center of technology and innovation, home to the Ashkelon Seawater Reverse Osmosis (SWRO) Plant – currently the largest desalination plant in the world. And when it comes to beer, we are up there with Germany and the Czech Republic. The Leonardo Hotel in Ashkelon is conveniently located in the heart of the city.
