Hamei Yoav

It all began in the 1950s when the members of Kibbutz Negba dug in the area with the hope of finding crude oil. To their disappointment, instead of crude oil they found only strange sulfur water which they did not really know what to do with. It was only in the 1990s that this water’s great potential was realized, when this place turned into a baths site. The water at Hamei Yoav, which is rich in sulfur and other minerals, have natural healing properties and help especially those who suffer from joints and back problems. But one can also just enjoy Hamei Yoav. The temperature of the water in the pools, which comes directly from the depth of 1,500 meters inside the earth, is 37-39 Celsius. One can also find here plenty of indulgences such as the waterfall pool which will massage your shoulders, a hydro-massage facility, saunas, Jacuzzi, and also a spa with a wide treatment menu. The Hamei Yoav site is situated near road number 35 between Ashkelon and Kiryat Gat.
