Tel Aviv Beaches – The religious beach

Tel Aviv travel guide

The religious beach is the only beach in Tel Aviv that has separate bathing days for men and women, and is a great option for those who prefer a more restrained beach atmosphere.

There is one beach in Tel Aviv that has separate bathing days for men and women, in order to respond to the needs of the religious community. It is named “the religious beach” (Hof Hadatiyim), sometimes referred to as “The Separate Beach” as well, and is surrounded by a high wall which isolates it from the neighboring beaches. This is a good option for those who prefer single sex bathing or restrained beach atmosphere.

Not only religious people take advantage of this unique and usually not too crowded beach. Women’s days tend to attract many of Tel Aviv’s non religious females as well, who sometime prefer to enjoy their sunbath uninterrupted by male company.

Shalom Howard Johnson (216 Hayarkon St., ), a modern five-story building with balconies towards the Mediterranean and Independence Park, is the nearest hotel. It is pretty basic but has a restaurant and a pub, which offers live music almost every evening. The Marina hotel is pretty close as well, located on top of Kikar Atarim square, which is a popular hangout place for tourists during the summer months. The Marina (167 Hayarkon St., ) is located in the center of Tel Aviv’s luxury hotel strip, and offers a combination of convenient location and comfortable lodging. The rooms at the Marina were recently renovated and its guests enjoy an underground parking lot, which is a rare and helpful feature for guests in the city.

The religious beach area is a central location for a Tel Aviv visit. Even if you choose to stay elsewhere, try to visit there once. Your chances to witness a similar beach elsewhere are pretty scarce.

Exploring the Vibrant Flea Market and Culinary Scene of Jaffa in Tel Aviv

Exploring the Vibrant Flea Market and Culinary Scene of Jaffa in Tel Aviv

As an American visiting the bustling city of Tel Aviv, I couldn't wait to explore the famous Flea Market in Jaffa. Located just south of the city center, this vibrant outdoor market is a feast for the senses, with its colorful stalls, exotic smells, and lively atmosphere. As soon as I arrived at the market, I was struck by the eclectic mix of people and cultures. Israeli locals haggled with tourists from all over the world, while street performers entertained the crowds with music and dance. Everywhere I looked, there was something new and exciting to discover. One of the things I loved most about the Flea Market was the amazing food. From traditional Israeli dishes like falafel and hummus to international fare like sushi and pizza, there was something to satisfy every craving. I particularly enjoyed trying some of the local specialties, like shakshuka, a savory egg dish served with tomatoes and spices. After exploring the market, I decided to check out some of the nearby bars and cafes. One of my favorites was Shaffa Bar, a laid-back hangout with outdoor seating and live music. I sipped on a cold beer and listened to the sounds of the bustling market, feeling completely immersed in the vibrant culture of Jaffa. The first is Raisa, located at Yehuda Margoza 10, a food bar that offers a delicious Mediterranean chef's menu. The menu features nods to the great cuisines of France and Spain, but still maintains a light Jaffa identity and is priced in a friendly manner. The selection of special fish and seafood dishes is based on the fresh catch that arrives daily from the fish market in the port of Jaffa. The menu also includes excellent meat dishes and vegan options. The bar at Raisa serves precise cocktails and excellent drinks prepared by expert bartenders. The relaxed vibe makes Raisa a perfect spot for a date or a casual meal. The location in the heart of the Flea Market adds to the charm of this exceptional restaurant. 03-6202262 The second restaurant that caught my eye was Albi located at 6 Oli Zion, a Greek tavern that transports visitors to the joyous atmosphere of Greece. The owners of Albi were inspired to open the restaurant after a roots trip to Greece, and they bring the tavern experience exactly as it is to Tel Aviv. The menu features authentic dishes such as soufleki and gyros, and a variety of meztis that are served in the center of the table, just like in the taverns of Thessaloniki. The ouzo and arak are imported in part straight from Greece, as are the traditional pitas that are served here. The colors of light blue and white and the sounds of bouzouki create a festive atmosphere that complements the quality food and fine alcohol. On Fridays, Albi welcomes Shabbat with a Greek party that electrifies the whole market. Phone: 077-4417072 One of the things I found most striking about the Flea Market in Jaffa was the vibrant young people scene in Tel Aviv. The city has a reputation for being a hub of creativity and innovation, and it's easy to see why when you explore the markets, bars, and cafes of Jaffa. Many of the young people I met in Tel Aviv were passionate about art, music, and fashion. They frequented the Flea Market in search of unique vintage clothing and accessories, and many of them were also involved in the local music scene. I was lucky enough to catch a few impromptu performances by up-and-coming musicians, who played everything from traditional Israeli music to indie rock. In addition to the markets and music scene, Tel Aviv is also home to a thriving nightlife. There are countless bars and clubs in the city, ranging from laid-back beachside hangouts to high-end cocktail bars. I particularly enjoyed the lively atmosphere of the bars in Jaffa, where locals and tourists alike gathered to drink and dance the night away. One of the things I loved most about the young people scene in Tel Aviv was the sense of energy and enthusiasm. Everywhere I looked, there were people who were passionate about their creative pursuits, whether it was music, fashion, or art. It was inspiring to see so many young people pursuing their dreams and making their mark on the world. Another highlight of my visit to Jaffa was exploring the historic architecture of the area. The old stone buildings and winding alleyways gave me a sense of the city's rich history and culture. I particularly enjoyed visiting the Jaffa Clock Tower, a beautiful landmark that offers panoramic views of the city and the Mediterranean Sea. Overall, my visit to the Flea Market in Jaffa was an unforgettable experience. From the delicious food to the lively atmosphere and beautiful architecture, there was something new and exciting around every corner. Whether you're a foodie, a history buff, or just looking for a fun and vibrant place to explore, Jaffa is a must-visit destination in Tel Aviv.

Yad Harutzim nightlife center in downtown Tel Aviv

Yad Harutzim nightlife center in downtown Tel Aviv

Yad Harutzim is probably not the best place to visit during the day, when it offers the not-too-sexy blend of auto repair shops, noisy multi-lane roads and old office buildings. But when the sun goes down, this area becomes one of the city's nightlife centers. Restaurants are packed, bars are massive and the nightclubs are lined one next to the other. Some of the biggest names in the city's nightlife scene are located here, and some excellent restaurants too, so if it's past 7 PM, it is definitely an area worth a visit. When it comes to the combination of casual atmosphere, great food and superb design the Coffee Bar (13 Yad Harutzim St., Tel 03-6889696) is probably among the best places to dine in Tel Aviv. This mostly French cuisine bistro is accompanied by a rich wine list and friendly service, in what is often referred to as one of the best casual restaurants in the country. Another culinary treat nearby is Vince and Tamar (10 Hazfira St., Tel: 03-6390407), which is an industrial-chic Italian restaurant. You will find no formal menus here, but daily specials listed on a blackboard. The moderate prices are more than reasonable for your diner value. Yad Harutzim hosts many nightclubs in a pretty condensed area. The Dome is one of the city's well established Mega-clubs, usually playing house and techno music. Prices are not cheap, but you will get your money's worth if Mega-Clubs are your cup of tea. Nearby are the SO and the VOX nightclubs, both offering the same type of music to similar crowd, happy and friendly (especially after a couple of drinks). If the underground scene and some experimental music are your thing, Café Barzilay is a smaller club that frequently hosts great DJs from abroad. Sometimes there are live performances of alternative Israeli artists too. If you're looking for mega-bars, mega-clubs or good restaurants in a downtown atmosphere, then Yad Harutzim is the place for you to visit. Bare in mind that traffic is pretty crowded there so you'd better come with Sherut (service) shared taxis, which has stops nearby on its way to the Central Bus Station.
