|About these ratings|
It's easy to see why walking and biking are the preferred modes of transportation here: With a three-mile-long beachside boardwalk to cruise, taking a taxi or a bus just feels like a missed opportunity. Tel Aviv's Tayelet—a pedestrian-only street—runs along the Mediterranean from the Old Tel Aviv Port to Jaffa, offering bikers and strollers spectacular views of the sea. On the inland side, the Tayelet grants easy access to Tel Aviv's prime hotel areas, as well as numerous restaurants and nightlife venues. On the other side of the promenade, you'll find sugary sands like those of Gordon-Frishman Beach. One TripAdvisor user describes the Tayelet as "Probably the best attraction Tel Aviv can offer."
You can access the Tayelet at any point between Jaffa and the Old Tel Aviv Port. The promenade is open at all hours, and you can spend as much time there as you want for free.
