Welcome to Beaches


Given the fact that the whole of the city's western edge is one long strip of gorgeous Mediterranean coastline, it's unsurprising that going to the beach is one of Tel Aviv's most popular tourist activities. Blessed with fine, dry and sunny weather for most of the year, sandy beaches and warm sea temperatures, Tel Aviv is a great choice for travellers seeking a beach holiday abroad. The coastline is divided into about ten beaches, all of which have their own appeal. The best beach for swimming in Tel Aviv is the Hilton Beach, while Gordon Beach is popular with tourists and has some good bars and cafes. Drums Beach is popular among backpackers (there are evening drumming sessions at the local hangout, the Chinky Beach Bar), and gay travellers will feel especially at home at Atzmout Beach. Most beaches in Tel Aviv are free, and boast decent facilities (such as toilets, showers, umbrellas and deck chairs).
