Stretching the length of Tel Aviv’s coastline, this scenic promenade takes in miles of beautiful beaches and crystal-clear water.
The Tel Aviv Promenade, known as the “Tayelet” in Hebrew, is busy both day and night. Early risers will see joggers and fishermen making the most of the cooler morning hours. During the daytime, it is popular with groups and families. Head down in the evening for a drink at one of the many bars.
Although the promenade is made up of several distinct sections, it’s easy to walk from one part to another. An extremely flat stretch, the promenade is very accessible and perfect for exploring on wheels. Rent a bike or rollerblades, or if you feel more adventurous, join a Segway tour.
Walking the promenade, you will come across several of Tel Aviv’s stunning beaches; 13 in total run along the Mediterranean shore. Wander off the path for a swim in the blue water. The water quality is high and lifeguards supervise much of the coastline during tourist season.
Watersports equipment is also available for rent. Find everything from surfboards and diving equipment to motorboats near the marina. But be aware that for the safety of swimmers, motorboats and Jet Skis are not permitted along all areas of the shoreline.
If you prefer to relax, head to Jerusalem Beach, a watersport-free zone. When you are in need of refreshment, try the popular beach snack of feta and watermelon. Look for “artikim,” or Israeli iced popsicles, to keep you cool.
Discover the distinct character of each area along the promenade. The area near the Hilton hotel, between Metzitzim Beach and the Marina, is Tel Aviv’s unofficial gay beach. If you fancy a game of volleyball, head further south to Gordon Beach.
Nordau Beach, close to the port, offers gender-segregated swimming throughout the week. It’s open to women Sundays, Tuesdays and Thursdays, with men only permitted on the alternate days. Both genders are welcome to swim on Saturdays.
Wherever you choose to stop along Tel Aviv Promenade, you will find well-appointed facilities such as lockers, showers and changing rooms. There is also a tourist police force on hand to answer any questions.
