Tel Aviv-Yafo Beaches

The City of Tel Aviv-Yafo Beaches boast 14 kilometers of the best beaches in the world with wide stretches of clean sand and stunning views of the sea and surfers. All of the Tel Aviv west side is one long beach which is divided into beaches named according to the hotel or street nearby – Just a step away from the hustle and bustle. There are 13 beaches along Tel Aviv-Yafo’s coastline. The busiest days are Friday and Saturday (the weekend) and public holidays. But, beware of the jellyfish (medusot).
