    The Beach!

    by mafi_moya Updated Aug 8, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Tel Aviv coastline

    For many tourists (and a fair few locals) Tel Aviv begins at the shore of the Mediterranean and ends about 100 metres inland. The beach is the centre of activity from the early morning joggers to the late night parties. In between, thousands of people sunbathe, swim and just generally have a good time.

    The beach is one long continuous stretch across the length of the city, but if you're there a while you'll soon work out which areas are most popular with young people, families and so on. Along parts of the main road it's a bit like walking through LA - palm trees, teeny-weeny bikinis and lots of glamorous bronzed people everywhere. Like me for instance!

    The most beautiful sunsets

    Once you'll see a sunset in Tel Aviv you'll have to admit that you even't seen anything more beautiful than this! Maybe I'm being biased, but I've been living there for the most of my life and can assure you that this is the, number one, must see activity of the city! Don't miss it. Well, you won't be able to.

    Mediterranean Beaches

    Tel Aviv has a long promenade, running alongside the seashore that makes up the western edge of Tel Aviv-Jaffa.
    Tel Aviv's beaches are well-equipped with changing rooms, showers and toilets; some have lifeguards year- round.
    On the beaches and at major tourist centers, tourist police provide a sense of security, as well as assistance and information services.
    The sea is the true heart of Tel Aviv and any visit to Tel Aviv would be incomplete without seeing it.

    You can watch my 3 min 16 sec HD Video Tel Aviv- Mediterranean Sea Morning Walk out of my Youtube channel.

    The Beach in December

    The Beach

    The other day I went for a ten minute walk along the seafront with a friend taking a teabreak from work (I am volunteer in her office). It was a lovely day (today it is pouring with rain and colder) and I took my camera with me. This photo shows a couple of young men coming back from using their surfboards - a popular sport here.

    Tel Aviv’s Beachfront

    Tel Aviv���s Beachfront
    4 more images

    The city is situated on the Israeli Mediterranean coastline. The beachfront of Tel Aviv has bathing beaches and a romantic waterfront promenade.
    Tel Aviv lies alongside the Mediterranean coastline. With few exceptions, all points of interest for tourists are in a rectangle defined by the sea to the west, the Yarkon River to the north, the Ayalon highway to the east, and Shlomo (Salame) Road to the south. This rectangle is separated into two long strips by Ibn-Gvirol Street, starting from the Yarkon River and changing its name to Yehuda Halevy. Most of the attractions are in the western of these strips.

    Soak your feet at a beach

    By Jerusalem beach (I think)

    Tel Aviv is located by the Mediterranean sea and me being a beach person, of course I had to go check them out. These beaches have nice, fine sand, warm weather and warm water and nice views of the high rising buildings just across the street.

    For those who don't feel like lying down and getting tanned (or sunburned!) all the time, there's at least one bar on every beach I saw, and there's a few public gyms of the sort, with machines to exercise. I was there somewhat early in the morning and didn't see any beach sports of any kind but they probably play them later during the day.

    I walked up until Jerusalem beach and saw some places where bathing is forbidden due to the current, and other places where it was safe to do so.The general feeling I got is that there's no need to "reserve" the best chairs and there's beaches for everyone, be it that you want to be alone with your thoughts or around lots of people.

    Along the Seafront

    by Jackiekg Updated Aug 31, 2003

    Tel Aviv Sea View

    Today I went for a short walk to see the seafront. I entered the park by the Hilton Hotel, opposite 198 Hayarkon Street, (corner Arlozoroff Street) to get a view of the sea. The park overlooks the beach and the Marina.
    The temperature today is 30C and 86F. I expect most people who like to go to the sea will go late afternoon, as at 11am I didn't see many people. Also the school year started today, so obviously older children could not go there.
    From this point you can also see the seafront hotels, of which there are many. Walk south a little and you reach the Promenade, which is very nice. Continue walking south and you will reach Yaffo. A nice walk in cooler weather.

    Sun set at the beach

    Tel-Aviv sun set

    Be sure to take a stroll by the beach road. That is possible almost all year around because of the mild winter and surely the hot summers. Late evenings if a perfect time as you can catch the sunset after all your business meetings and before attending a delighted dinner in one of the many great restaurants of this city.

    The Beaches

    One thing is sure, impossible to be in Tel Aviv and miss its great beaches. where ever you'll stay in TA it will be close to the beach .... so no chance of missing it.

    You have many Cafe's and Bars on the beach's that are open both day and night time. some of the beaches has music and some are more relaxed.

    One thing is sure walking on the beach or even just sitting in the afternoon / evening time is a great thing.

    Tel Aviv has one of the best big city beaches i have come across in this world.
    It´s right in the middle of town and very lively all day long and at night for that matter too.
    The beach is long and wide and you can easilt both find a lively spot or place place relatively to yourself.
    The beach is lines with hotel and cafes so you can easily find a place to eat and sleep by the beach too.

    Hilton and Topsi Beach -- Lumping the Minorities?

    by RhineRoll Written Aug 24, 2008

    looks quite nice around here...

    I was pretty delighted to find some special facilities for wheelchair users at the very northern end of my promenade walk. The enticement eased off to some extent when learning that this stretch called Hilton Beach or Topsi Beach also is the hotspot for dog owners and homosexuals. What exactly could be the wisdom of this -- "Since we've already confined the pooing dogs and the gays to the spot, let's put the cripples there as well?" Well, maybe not. What speaks for this stretch is good car access, and so it was possible to build a very decent number of disabled parking bays. There also is a surf school here, so it's not just the minorities ghetto. I just wish the adapted toilet wasn't in such a disastrous state -- here back home, I would have sent my pictures straight to the building proprietors (the city) so that they can have a word with their commercial tenants about keeping the place clean.

    Not sure what the place looks like in summer and whether the handicap bays will be kept free for eligible people. From a disabled person's point of view, it would be good to have more stretches made accessible as well.

    Promenade and beach of Tel Aviv

    Tel Aviv beach

    The beach is probably the best spot all over the city. It’s a long whitesand beach that spreads all over the coast. The best thing is that there’s a promenade so you can actually walk from rocky south part in Jaffa up to the north to the old port. There are rocky wave breaks inside the water and you can actually choose one of the numerous smaller beaches (there’s even a religious beach!)

    It wasn’t very busy in late October but still there were many swimmers, joggers, topless girls getting tanned (VT wont allow me to post such pics though), bikers, lovers, people using the public gyms etc There are some café and restaurants in some parts so there’s something for everyone. It gets more lively during the summer months when the clubs give the beat, don’t forget that Tel Aviv is famous for its club scene. We preferred it without the crazy clubers…we just enjoyed our walk looking at the high rising structures of huge 5star hotels that face the beach, a few minutes later we saw the sunset and started to walk back to the city.

    Hilton Beach

    Hilton Beach, Tel-Aviv
    4 more images

    This is one of my favorite beaches in Tel-Aviv, mainly because of its location and topography: It lies underneath the low cliffs of Independence Park, along a quiet stretch of the promenade which is closed to trafiic (except for the disabled, making it the most accessible beach in Tel Aviv for the disabled). The Hilton Hotel rises high on top of the cliff, and I must admit it is not an ugly building and not an eyesore. Towards the south there is a pleasant view of the marina.
    The white sandy beach itself is quite narrow, but stretches as a crescent towards the long pier. The pier itself is well lit at night and has some benches.
    There is a nice bar-restaurant ("Top Sea", see "Restaurant Tips").

    Tel Aviv Beach

    It's the best you can do on a sunny day...just go to the beach, take a blanket with you, sit down in the sand, relax, watch the people going by or just read a book or go for some swimming. It's also nice to sit outside of the nice restaurants you have at the beach and drink a coffee or something. It's my favourite place...!

    Walk by the beach

    Tel-Aviv being by the beach has a great place for walking, jogging, cycling or just relaxing and looking at the sea. There few small shopping malls and many coffee shops, restaurants, terraces and pubs all over along to beach where you can drink, eat and do whatever you wish for.
