Israeli Beaches = No shoes :)
Oh how I love Israeli beaches. Well, I love any beach but the Israeli beaches are pretty special. For one the sand is different. It is unique from most beaches in the US. The sand has a reddish tint that reminds me of places in Sedona AZ. It is more fine and feels different. I noticed it right away! No shoes required:) Although I have not seen water more clear than in the Greek islands (clear 60 feet down) the beaches are pebble shores and shoes are needed! Some sand, but not much. I do enjoy a good sandy beach, there is just something therapeutic about the sound of the waves and the sand in your toes! The other reason I love the beaches here is because most public beaches have play ground equipment right on the sand for your kids to play with. Swim, play, swim, play!
