Before setting out, check with the Haifa Tourist Information Office’s “What’s on in Haifa” and the Tourist Information Telephone Hot Line (tel. 04/837-4253), both of which will tell you what’s happening while you’re in town.

And remember too, that this is a primo beach destination. So beyond the sightseeing listed, beachcombing can be considered a star activity. Haifa’s great beaches, just south of town, are perfect for a late afternoon swim in summer, followed by fresh seafood at one of the beachside pubs. Allow time to watch the sun sink into the sea.
