Go to the same lookout point as the Bahá’i Gardens to get a great view of the port. You can see all the ships directly offshore as well.

If you like ships, sea transportation, then this is the right place for you. Remember not to take pictures - they would come up to you to remind you this. This is also a militarily sensitive area.

Very happening area. Visit start from Haifa lock tower. Old Mkt is good but no exciting stuff available. Ocean view is very good & specially in d night when light glow it looks very beautiful. Evening time is best to visit.

Not actually been in the port itself. Mostly I've just seen it from afar atop Mount Carmel, Bahai Gardens or from Sculpture Gardens. Nice.

If you are just traveling, or have the opportunity to visit one of the many homes which are facing this bay and looking at this view, you will surly take a picture for your memories...
