Best thing to do is to enter the beach drop your board(no one will tutch it, you can ask the life guard to kip an eye),and go park outside, one minute walk, and no money!
Every 200 meters you'll find a different break!
I surf in front of the lifeguard station .
Allways happy atmosphere!

Zikim - Zikim very occasionaly gets good. It works almost year round but it`s usually small & mushy. The good vibes there are the thing! Most of the time you`ll be the ONLY surfie out. When it gets good that`s when you can catch the 'first break' 500 metres from the beach & work it to the sandbar where, if your lucky you get a little barrel. The water there is the cleanest in Israel - crystal! You see the sea-floor (like in the movies).For learners & soldiers who`ve sneaked out to 'wet their head', it`s ideal. If you wanna see sea-turtles & dolphins this is your place! Respect "mother-nature" & "Neptune`s gifts". Don`t trash the sand-dunes & leave condoms on the beautiful white sands. Enjoy!
