The city boasts 16 beaches, all of which have clean toilets and outdoor showers, and most also offer indoor showers and changing rooms.

The beaches of Tel Aviv are diverse, and consistently receive rave reviews from the visitors. The Nordau Street Beach caters to conservative, Orthodox Jewish sun seekers by offering separate visiting days for men and women, while the Atzmaut Beach is especially welcoming to Tel Aviv’s vibrant gay community. The areas adjacent to the Tel Aviv Marina (primarily Gordon-Frishman Beach) are the ideal spot to hop in on a game of volleyball or participate in surfing, kayaking, boating or diving. Whether you want to go swimming with the dogs, relax and read or play matkot Israel’s favorite beach sport you'll find a shoreline to suit your needs.

Considering the city’s beaches span 9 miles along the western edge of Tel Aviv, there are a variety of ways to reach them. Bus No. 4 is your best option though because it runs north to south and any stop you choose will only be one block from the shore. For a full directory of the city's beaches, visit the Tel Aviv tourism website.

#1 The Tayelet

It's easy to see why walking and biking are the preferred modes of transportation here: With a 3-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 beautiful beaches, including hot spots like Gordon Beach.
