Small semi wrecked old building half way between Holiday Inn and Marina. Unless you have a special reason for wanting to see the Sheik's tomb don't make a special effort to go there. Lots of garbage thrown about.

I remember when the municipality remounted the old place. If it's a tomb they broke the place's originality. But it's a great place to visit. Some places to view the Mediterranean and take photos. On summer go around 18 hrs and you'll see one of...More

I would not make a journey to see this but if you walk past on the promenade then look inside this ruin. It will not occupy more than 5 minutes.

This is a very quick stop along the walk near the marina. The Tomb itself is in an unlit area, and I visited in the evening, so it was hard to see. It was unfortunate that the outside has been harmed by some paint. Beautiful...More

The tomb is approximately 500 plus years old. It is well preserved there is an explanatory plaque in English and Hebrew. Very photogenic

It is just a landmark. Go to see it, if you are here on the promenade. Do not, if you are not a freak of Mamluk period.

It's just an old building next to the beach. Nothing really to see. Don't make a trip just for this.

Tomb of Sheikh is just an old building with a little tomb inside that you can't touch or get close enough so this is not much for attraction BUT: the outer place is beautiful! This is the promenade of the city and in my opinion...More

It's a tomb + shrine belonging to sheikh. Or so they say. Some scholars believe it's a vestige from the unique 13th century Mamluki coastal defense system. There isn't much to see, and because of the erosion of the bluff there will be even less...More
