Beaches and Promenade
Beaches, beaches, beaches. They might not have Thailand’s crystal blue water or the Greek islands’ perfect white sand, but they’re still great. They can be enjoyed practically all year round as the weather is fantastic, the water is just the right temperatures, especially during the looong summer months, the sand is soft and we love them.
As is the case with other parts of Tel Aviv, the beaches generally get cleaner and quieter the farther north you go, though as you’ll see right below there are certainly some exceptions. The most popular options are right in the center of the beach strip, the Gordon and Frishman beaches, so if you’re looking for some peace and quiet you better walk a little further south or north, depending on your taste. We’ve included a thorough overview of each and every Tel Aviv beach, to help you decided where to go, but the best recommendation we could give you is to try them out. Odds are you’ll enjoy these trials and errors as much as you’ll enjoy every other thing you’ll do in Tel Aviv.
If it’s not safe to go out swimming, you’ll see black flags flying all over the beach and on top of the lifeguard’s hut. A red flag means you can swim, but should be careful. If you happen to forget or go out swimming in a no-swim zone, 10 times out of 10 you’ll hear the lifeguard’s voice over the megaphone calling out for you to return to the fold.
