Great news for everyone who had plans to go to the beach during the Pesach holiday!
45 Israeli beaches to open early for the Pesach holidays!
Interior Minister Aryeh Deri has ordered the early opening of 45 beaches along Israel’s coast in order to ensure that families can visit the beaches safely while schools are closed during Pesach vacation. It is so important only to swim when there is a lifeguard and to always pay attention to the flags and listen to the lifeguard’s instructions where necessary!
This year you will notice a new purple flag at the beach – this signals a warning of a lot of Jellyfish in the water.
While the beach season officially begins May 9, these beaches will have life guards during Pesach (from 22nd April unless written otherwise):
