The Reef (Haifa) in North of Tel Aviv is an exposed beach and reef break that only works once in a while. Works best in offshore winds from the east southeast. Waves just as likely from local windswells as from distant groundswells and the ideal swell angle is from the west. The beach break provides left and right handers and in addition, both left and right reef breaks add variety. Good surf at all stages of the tide. Sometimes crowded. Submerged rocks are a hazard.

FEATURE UPDATE: we now show red swell icons for 'open sea' swells that are travelling in an unfavourable direction for the surf break. In places, these swells may still wrap around coastlines and produce smaller waves at some breaks. They are also significant for windsurfers and other water users that tend to venture further off-shore.
