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.
