Sea and Sun – Beaches of Tel Aviv

Tel Aviv travel guide

The beautiful white beaches of Tel Aviv are the city’s most popular attraction and a must for any visitor. The magnificent promenade (“Tayelet” in Hebrew), with its beachfront cafes and restaurants, runs along the shore at the main hotel area, providing a great location for morning or afternoon jogging.

The beaches are mostly crowded on weekends (Friday and Saturday), and are pleasantly quiet in early mornings, when the only brave swimmers are seniors working on their exercise. The seashores are dotted with kiosks just a few steps from the water, tan worshipers lying on beach-beds while others carefully sitting under parasols.

While at the beach you may find yourself moving your head from the right to the left, following local pairs playing “Matkot” (Israeli beach Tennis), and on summer evenings, soon after the beautiful Mediterranean sunset, the beaches become a great location for night hang outs, you can find many beach bars, from the new and renovated Mezizim beach bar to the one North of the Marina and others along the beach.

Gan Hahashmal one of the coolest neighborhoods in Tel Aviv

Gan Hahashmal one of the coolest neighborhoods in Tel Aviv

Gan Hahashmal (Electricity Garden) is one of the coolest neighborhoods in Tel Aviv. Once the location of Tel Aviv's central power plant, followed by few dark years, in which this small park surrounded by elegant, late-Ottoman-era houses hosted some of the city's alternative activities, it now houses some Tel Aviv’s indie-fashion crowd who chose to live, work, create and party there. The Collective 6940 is a group of designers who settled into the Gan HaHashmal area with their design studios and stores that inhabit the few blocks around the central garden. The group is also responsible for several cultural events throughout the year, offering live music, dancing, group yoga, art exhibitions and - shopping. The Gan Hahashmal miniature quarter, spreading between the streets of Allenby, Yehuda Halevy, Barzilay & Hahashmal, boasts of cutting-edge boutiques, studios of apparel and accessory designers, restaurants, cafes and nighttime entertainment options. Some of the most recommended are: Bar & Music: Levontin 7 is the name (and address) of one of the coolest bars-music venue in Tel Aviv. Now in its 2nd year, it hosts a wide selection of eclectic music performances of local and foreign Rock, Jazz and Indie musicians and bands.

Shopping: Uzbek-born Helena Blaunstein designs an eclectic women’s clothing line for her store Frau Blau (8 HaHashmal St.; 972-3-5601735; www.fraublau.com). With their vibrant colors, patchwork patterns, and fitted, feminine shapes, her clothes have a vintage edge paired with a decidedly 21st-century playfulness.

The Museum of the Jewish People Tel Aviv

The Museum of the Jewish People Tel Aviv

The Museum of the Jewish People in Tel Aviv opened to the public recently with interactive displays, films, and objects that cover the whole range of Jewish culture, history, and civilization. The museum is very big, with 6,700 square meters of space on three floors. The first floor, called "The Mosaic," is all about modern Jewish identity and culture. Some of the objects on display include the typewriter of Nobel Prize-winning writer Isaac Bashevis Singer, the guitar that Leonard Cohen played during his last concert in Israel, and the collar worn by late Supreme Court justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. The Museum of the Jewish People is the largest and most comprehensive Jewish museum in the world. It is over 72,000 sq.ft., and it tells the story of Jews throughout the world, historically, from Abraham up until this day, and also in terms of the breadth of Jewish identity in terms of cultural beliefs. Some of the exhibits in the Jewish museum are about things that happened a long time ago. One of the exhibits is about a group of people who were forced to convert to Islam, but they kept their Judaism a secret. The women in the group used to wear special necklaces with a picture of Fatima on them. That way, if they were ever stopped and asked what they were doing, they could say they were just good Muslims. The museum is called "Beit Hatfutsot - The Museum of the Jewish People". It was built to replace an old museum of the Jewish Diaspora. The new museum was built over the past 10 years and was funded by the State of Israel, the Nadav Foundation, and private philanthropy. The museum is intended to help people learn about the history and culture of the Jewish people. Address: Klausner St 15, Tel Aviv
