We visited in Ramadan. It's a lovely small mosque overlooking the sea. It was built around the 17th. There were dates & juice available to open our fast.

The architecture of the mosque and the surrounding area bring you back in time for a glimpse of the past. We highly recommend checking it out; so bring your camera. :-) Happy Traveling, ExploreTraveler

It is the oldest extant mosque in Jaffa. Very useful for fishermen and sailors due to its proximity to the Mediterranean Sea.

mosques can be beautiful , but this one is a waste of time for tourists. Skip it and go to the beach across the street or to mosques in Jaffa near bye if you really want to see a mosque.

A nice old mosque near the beach in Tel Aviv. Not far from it is the Carmelit bus station and the Carmelit market.
