An interesting gigantic "eye" that changes colour every few minutes.. best seen at night, can be seen from the nearby parking lot, beach or hotel... Suggest sunset as a time to be there...

A very colorful and unique work of art, interesting to look at as it changes colors constantly. It’s right by the Leonardo at the very southern tip of the Ashdod beach, you can’t miss it.

While staying at a hotel nearby, we went strolling in this area of Ashdod and came across this gigantic eyeball sitting in the middle of a major square. During the day it was just odd. But, at night it lit up and kept changing colors....More

I think this is the most beautiful place in Ashdod. Those who come to the place from the direction of the east will see the sun's eye and the sea is reflected behind it. Part of the prospectus are natural sands with natural plants. All...More
