Beaches in Israel

Tel Aviv Beach

Tel Aviv Beach

Yohay Elam

Israel is by far one of the best beach cultures in the world. Okay, it's not tropical beaches, but it's its definitely Mediterrenean in nature. From Hof (Hof means beach in Hebrew) Zikim in the South to Hof Achziv in the North and everything in the middle.

For those people watchers, Tel Aviv is the best bet. All the beaches in Tel Aviv offer all the amenities one would ever want while on vacation. Every beach has a cafe with seats right in the sand. You can also order food and coctails while your legs are embedded in the fine sand. There are even beaches for Gays, dog lovers (both share the same beach), and those seeking rocky cliffs as backdrops.

One of the best way to discover which beach you like best is to stroll along the Tayelet (promenade in Hebrew) from the old port of Tel Aviv to Jaffa/Yafo. In between there are over ten beaches to choose from. The newly renovated are of the old port of Tel Aviv is a great place to grab a bite to eat or have a Cafe Hafuch (Cappuchino but with coffee poured over steam milk).

One truly Israeli experience is to play Matkot on the beach. Matkot is two paddles with a small rubber ball. The object of the game is to simply hit the ball back and forth. You will see Israelis playing this game and yelling at each other. Of course, the beaches have every activity other beaches have such as surfing, windsurfing, chess, beach volleyball, and soccer.

Beach Exploring

Edit This

With the exception of the beaches in Tel Aviv, Netanya, Haifa, and Herzelia, Israel has numerous beaches where one can find peace and solitude. Even at the height of the Summer season, there are still many beaches where one can get a large part of the beach to themselves. Some in the exreme North such as past Acko and Naharia and some as far south as past Ashkelon or between Ashdod and Bat Yam. Also, there are some amazing beaches with ancient ruins between Herzelia and Haifa.
