From the 1930s to the 1960s, the Old Tel Aviv Port acted as Israel's primary gateway to the sea. Day in and day out, ships brought merchandise to Israel's shores from all over the Mediterranean, as Israeli exports increased. Since the port closed in the '60s, major revitalization efforts have turned this area into one of the most exciting entertainment districts. Today, the wooden docks support cozy cafes, trendy shops, delectable restaurants and seaside bars.
Previous visitors describe the Old Tel Aviv Port as an ideal place to take in the city’s culture. Tourists can alternate between people-watching and taking in the stellar views of the Mediterranean while they enjoy a coffee or drink.
You'll find the Old Tel Aviv Port skirting the Mediterranean Sea from its perch at the mouth of the Yarkon River. It can be reached via bus Nos. 55 and 189. The area bustles with activity at almost any hour, although individual establishments operate at varying times. You don't have to pay an entrance fee, but you may want to carry some shekels with you to spend on a meal or a souvenir. To learn more, visit the Israeli Tourism Board's website.
