Mevo'ot Yam (Hebrew: מְבוֹאוֹת יָם‎‎, lit. Sea Gate) is a youth village in central Israel founded in 1951. It is named after the biblical term for "gateways of the sea" (Ezekiel 27:3[1])

Located on the coast of the Mediterranean Sea near Mikhmoret, it falls under the jurisdiction of Hefer Valley Regional Council. In 2006, it had a student population of 634. The school offers a variety of specialized tracks with an emphasis on nautical studies.
