The Israeli planning committee is getting towards the end of its deliberations on whether to approve a master plan for a new marina development on the country’s coastline.
Jerusalem, Haifa, Herzliya, Tel Aviv, Ashdod, and Ashkelon are the five major marinas along Israel’s 180km-long coastline. There is just one marina on the Red Sea shore, at Eilat, which was severely damaged by the winter storm of 2020, and it is now receiving extensive renovations.
Only about 2,500 berths are available in Israeli Med Sea marinas, although demand is reported to be more significant. So, hundreds of Israelis store their boats in other nations as a result of this situation.
