Ein Ozen - hidden in the bush When standing in front of the heavy thicket of the Pistacia lentiscus shrub above Ein Ozen, it is hard to imagine that the dome-shaped shrub "hides" the spring.
A narrow path that crosses through the bushes leads to the opening of a rock-hewn cave and descends to the site of the spring. The well is a depth of about 1.5 meters, is actually a vertical niche that leads to a large horizontal pit and the water flows in its floor.
In the spring the water rises to about 1.5m, but in the summer it goes back down. Inside the cave, there is an entrance space and another room that can be reached with scuba gear. The water is clear and clean and the water in the spring is pleasant. On rainy days the spring is full and the entrance to the second room is dangerous and forbidden since you cannot tell if there is room to get your head out of the water.
