The Union of Kinneret Cities decided Wednesday that the best way to keep clean the six beaches which were returned to its control recently is to charge admission for them on Independence Day.

After the free beaches were overwhelmed by tens of thousands of visitors over Pessah – who vandalized them and left them covered in trash – the union embarked on a process of evaluation.

Their conclusion: charge NIS 55 for the day and thus encourage the public to use all of the Kinneret's beaches and not just the six free ones. The rest of the beaches are in private hands. The six beaches were recently returned to the local authorities after being removed from private hands.
