Tel Aviv Beaches


Tel-Aviv beaches are spread along the entire Tel-Aviv coastline from Hatzuk in the North to Aviv beach at the south.

A short description of the population you may expect at every beach: 

  • Hatzuk – Tel Aviv’s northern beach usually hosts Israelis due to the large distance between the beach and the hotel strip. It is a clean strip of beach, and you will be required to pay a small fee at the entrance. This beach is open all year long, with available lifeguard services during the winter as well.
    There are two snack bars at the beach, as well as a big lawn which is quite comfortable if you wish to have a picnic as well. A small playground is located on the lawn. Parking is free. 
  • Tel – Baruch Beach - usually hosts Israelis due to the large distance between the beach and the hotel strip. It is a clean strip of beach, and entrance is free. This beach is open only during the summer.
    There is a snack bar at the beach. Parking is needs to be paid for. 
  • Metzizim beach – My favorite beach is located just under the Hilton hotel, and is in fact the northern beach for all old Tel-Aviv neighborhoods. It is usually packed with Tel-Avivians. Entrance is free, while parking will cost. This beach is open all year long, with available lifeguard services during the winter as well.
    There is a nice pub at the beach, as well as a small playground and two volleyball courts for your disposure. Handicapped persons are also welcome and have special facilities. 
  • Nordeo separate beach – Just next to Hilton and Metzizim beaches you will find the only separate beach in Tel-Aviv intended for the use of people who wish to bathe in an all-mal or female area. Entrance is free, while parking will cost. Activity times are divided by days of the week between men and women. 
  • Hilton beach – A narrow strip of beach which is filled with water as the tide is up. It is a very private place – a perfect getaway for those who wish some quiet time for thinking. Entrance is free, while parking will cost. 
  • Gordon Beach – Just below “Kikar Atarim” you will find what I always think of as quite a common beach. The strip of sand is wide, and there is a “Burger king” right next to the beach. Getting to the Gordon beach is quite a hassle since it is at a separate level than the street, but those who do get there will enjoy a quiet beach. The population you will find there is mostly Israeli and tourist teenagers. Entrance is free, while parking will cost. 
  • Frishman Beach – This is a beach which perfectly combines tourists and Israelis together. Getting to Frishman beach is the easiest thing, since it is just next to the “Dan” hotel, and many bus lines stop there. This beach is open all year long, with available lifeguard services during the winter as well. Entrance is free, while parking will cost. 
  • Bugrashov beach – Same as Frishman beach, you can’t really tell the apart. A population of tourists as well as Israelis, Entrance is free, while parking will cost. 
  • Jerusalem Beach (Hof Yerushalaim) – a very popular beach in which you will usually find Israeli families as well as tourists. The beach has a fish restaurant, quite a big playground and volleyball courts.
    This beach is open all year long, with available lifeguard services during the winter as well. Entrance is free, while parking will cost.
  • Aviv Beach – same as Jerusalem beach.

The activity hours of the Municipal Beaches Department are as follows:
April, May and September: 07:00 - 17:00.
June: 07:00 - 18:00.
July and August: 07:00 - 19:00.
September until April: 07:00 - 14:00.

Activity hours mean that there is a lifeguard on the lookout, although you may always go to the beach at your own risk, so that if it’s a nice day out and the season hasn’t started yet, there’s not really anything to stop you from going to the beach.
