The national park includes the 3.5 km long promenade connecting Capernaum and Tabgha. A dock, constructed to rise and fall with the water level has been built east of the Capernaum antiquities. Dock facilities include an information booth, souvenir shop, toilets and a snack-bar. The park fosters and protects a variety of flora and fauna.
