We can’t pinpoint one since there is an 8 mile beach strip down the west side of the city, and anywhere is just simply a sweet spot for you, but there are the famous ones like, Gordon Beach or Metzizim Beach. But, really, anywhere you set your foot on that sandy shore is just plain cool. There are also beaches here that are really LGBT friendly so wear those Pride colors proudly.
Tel Aviv Promenade is the most famous place for both tourists and locals, and who could blame them because this is the best place to breathe in the Mediterranean breeze. It’s a quick easy access to the beach or a good spot to read a book while sipping coffee in one of the quaint cafes. It’s definitely a good place to just chill and hear the crashing waves.
The largest and not to mention the busiest of all Tel Aviv Markets, Carmel Market is a good place to hunt for fresh product and cheap bargains. Going in and out of the colorful stalls dotting the market area is such a nice experience with vendors serenading you with their products and prices. It’s a bustling open air market where you can buy all your supplies before heading out to the beach.
They would always say “old but gold” and this sums up one of the oldest port cities in the world, the Old Jaffa City. Your trip to Tel Aviv wouldn’t be complete without a quick tour here. Grab souvenirs from the flea markets in the city and satiate your taste buds in the many delicious street foods. The ancient clock tower is a must see, together with dozens of stunning mosques and churches mixed with modern restaurants, shopping centers and trendy bars.
“White City” is one of the more famous nicknames of Tel Aviv and for a reason.
