Tel Aviv Beaches: Tel Aviv is famous for its beaches. The city’s borders the Mediterranean coast and the locals definitely take it in.
The main broad walk is from Jaffa Port to Tel Aviv Port — Shlomo Lahat Promenade. It’s under 4 miles of beaches, restaurants, bars and hotels along the Mediterranean coast. It’s packed with tourists and locals enjoying the fresh ocean breeze; there are the occasional surfers and fishermen near Jaffa Port.
I hardly visit the beach even though I’m a few files from it. It’s definitely something I take for granted living in Southern California. However, I do visit the beach if I’m traveling to a city near the coast. My friends who have been to Tel Aviv suggested and strongly recommend I visit the beach during my time in Israel. They said it’s one of the most beautiful beaches in the world.
However, it’s a bold statement to make since I’ve been to Boracay. Boracay’s white beach is one of the most impressive beaches I’ve seen in this world outside of Iceland’s black sand beaches. Let’s not forget Australia’s Port Campbell beaches along Great Ocean Road. I did find Tel Aviv’s Shlomo Lahat Promenade refreshing to walk down after a few days in Dubai, Jordan, and Egypt. Unfortunately, I can’t say that Tel Aviv’s beaches rank higher than Boracay’s white beach and Iceland’s black sand beaches.
There is only so much to do while someone is in Tel Aviv. The beaches are hard to pass up especially with the fresh ocean breeze and the mixture of more than 50 beaches in Israel. I would recommend starting at Jaffa Port then walking up to Tel Aviv Port, or vice versa, to get the full experience of the beaches. It’s only under 4 miles so it’s a great opportunity to do a beach bar crawl along Shlomo Lahat Promenade.
