Tel Aviv is officially top 10 beach city according to leading travel publisher Lonely Planet. The Tel Aviv beaches stretch the entire length of the west city, with golden sands and crystal blue waters drawing thousands of tourists, locals, surfers, swimmers, and literally everybody else, throughout the year. The great thing about Tel Aviv’s beaches though, is that despite their beauty and wide appeal, they haven’t deteriorated in quality.
Here’s what Lonely Planet had to say:
Tel Aviv is the total flipside of Jerusalem, a modern Sin City on the sea rather than an ancient Holy City on a hill. When the weather is warm Tel Avivans flock en masse to the city beaches. You’ll find young and old soaking up the Mediterranean rays, kitesurfing and knocking back and forth little rubber balls during friendly matches of matkot. The beaches are safe and clean, and there are changing rooms and freshwater showers scattered along its length. The main beaches are packed with people most days, especially on Saturdays, when the crowds descend to pick a prime spot. Get here early.

And let’s not forget, Tel Aviv isn’t one big beach, there are many small areas of beach, each with their own character and atmosphere. Which one to choose?
