Rising out of the desert, Neot Semadar is not your conventional kibbutz. It's at the fruit of the labor of a generation of idealistic and slightly quirky Israelis who wanted to build a new type of community in the desert. Come for the unusual architecture:...More

Didn't take the tour, dates were best I ever had, normally would never eat. Sampled dessert wine. Fermented in the sun, pretty darn good! Almost like champagne! Lots of homemade/organic wine and spices and dates. If u are driving by you must stop and visit!

Very interesting and different sort of kibbutz to visit on your way down to Eiat. Great local productions of jams, yogurts, cakes, and a nice coffee shop and restaurant at the junction with an enjoyable shadowy terrasse in the back.
