Middle East

Akko Marina

Akko Marina is one of the oldest preserved ports in the world. From the classical age until the medieval period it served as a significant bustling docking point for shipments coming through the area. Today, it remains a strategic trading stop of the Eastern Mediterranean. You feel like you are walking through history as you stroll down the quaint, tranquil fishing harbor lined with old fishing boats, and enjoy a breathtaking view of Akko’s old city. At ten shekels a person, you can even hop on a boat tour and ride out into deeper waters of the Mediterranean for a fantastic view of the city walls and a taste of Akko’s history. It is considered one of the hidden gems on a tour of Israel. We arrived at the marina just in time for a snack right before a beautiful sunset with perfect light to photograph the fishing boats in the harbor.
