South Beach: Tel Aviv / Jaffa

Beaches of Israel travel guide

The “south beach” area, on the Tel Aviv/Jaffa border, includes quite a few attractions: great beaches, fabulous food, and even one historic museum. Whether you’re touring the beach promenade or on your way to or from Jaffa – you’d want to get to know that area.

The beach right on the border of Tel Aviv/Jaffa is Alma Beach, one of the most laid-back beaches in Tel Aviv that offers the beautiful view of the port and towers of Old Jaffa. The beach is relatively clean and untouched. There are sunshades and showers but no lifeguard, so be extra careful. There are no sun beds, but there is a sitting area with plastic chairs and tables which are part of the Alma Beach Kiosk, the beach extension of the up-scale restaurant Manta Ray. In the Kiosk you can order some of the restaurant’s simpler dishes and nice cocktails.

If we’re already mentioning Manta Ray (Tel: +972-3-5174773), we must say that it offers fantastic view of the Mediterranean Sea and Old Jaffa and serves great seafood and fish dishes. Breakfasts are especially recommended and a drink with little Tapas on the Manta Ray porch during sunset is a Tel Aviv experience you can’t beat.

One of the most famous restaurants on the Tel Aviv/Jaffa border is Margaret Tayar’s, at 4 Retsif Ha-Aliyah Shenei St. (Tel: +972-3-6824741 – it’s recommended you call to check on opening hours because they tend to change with the weather and the mood). Margaret Tayar is an inspired cook who loves to see people enjoying her creations – as fish and other Mediterranean dishes there deserve to be called.

We said an historic museum on the beach and we weren’t kidding. The Etzel Museum 1947-1948 (Beit Gidi) is located right on South Herbert Samuel Promenade, (Tel:+972-3-5172044).  The Etzel was a paramilitary force that operated against both the British and the Arabs to win Jewish sovereignty, before being incorporated into the Israel Defense Force. This museum follows the campaign to ‘liberate’ Jaffa in a set of well organized exhibits and English translated materials.

Right on the Tel Aviv/Jaffa border you’ll find the luxurious hotels Dan Panorama and the David Intercontinental. Both offer a great view of the beach and the Mediterranean, of Old Jaffa on one end and the Tel Aviv skyline on the other – A great view to start your day with.

The Nachsholim Beach Hotel - A beautiful stretch of white beach

The Nachsholim Beach Hotel - A beautiful stretch of white beach

The Nachsholim Beach Hotel is a pearl that has emerged from the sea. A beautiful stretch of white beach at the foot of Carmel is dotted with small houses along the Mediterranean Sea coast.  There are natural bays, lagoons of clear and blue water, small islands close to the coastline, fish, birds, and majestic sunsets. 152 accommodation units, at varying levels, are surrounded by green expanses of grass on all sides, well-maintained vegetation and winding paths between 152 accommodation units of all types: family units, double rooms, "country vacation" rooms, boutique sea rooms that overlook a rare view of the waterfront, "family boutique rooms" in the "Greek Wing" and suites that include a pool/balcony on the first line of the sea.  Between Tel Dor's antiquities site and the Hammazga Museum, which was built by Baron Rothschild as a glass factory, the hotel is situated on the seashore. A secret technique for extracting blue color from marine snails made Dor famous. The shell logo now appears as a design element in the rooms and is the symbol of Nachsholim Beach Hotel. These colors were used to decorate the temple's clothes. We offer an unforgettable vacation in the great outdoors in all seasons of the year, along with courteous, efficient and professional hospitality, free parking and free wireless internet access in the suite rooms and at the reception. The Nachsholim Beach Hotel is legal accessible and supervises by the Commission for Equal Rights for People with Disabilities. It can host group activities, beach events, and private and family events. The accessible facilities are: parking for cars equipped with an elevator, 2 electric vehicle charging stations, standard parking lots, accessible rooms, reception office, restaurant, snack bar (during the summer months), conference halls and a synagogue. The hotel has an accessibility coordinator to whom you can contact for any questions on the subject.

Poleg Beach Netanya

Poleg Beach Netanya

Poleg Beach is located in the southern part of the city of Netanya, near the neighborhoods of Ramat Poleg and Ir Yamim. Poleg Beach (Green Beach) is the southern bathing beach in Netanya. Unlike the rest of the city's beaches, access to the beach is easy in the absence of a cliff at the back of the beach. The beach is located in the south of the city of Netanya. The beach is a regulated bathing beach, with rescue services and disabled access. In the back of the beach there is an event complex "Bamboo Village" including a bar, restaurant and surfing club. On the south side of Poleg Beach towards Wingate, is a beach used for kite surfing activities. The activity that takes place on the beach of parachutes and surfboards produces a spectacular view for the residents of the area. In June-August, a beach soccer tournament is held on Poleg Beach (every Friday), an attraction that attracts the best Israeli athletes to the beach, as well as sports, soccer, beach and sea enthusiasts. At Poleg Beach there are: a toilet and shower building, a first aid station, shade sheds, fitness facilities and beach and volleyball courts. There is a large parking lot near Poleg Beach, so it was decided to transfer all motorized water sports activities to it. Vessels carrying vehicles are allowed to reach the water line and after unloading the craft exit easily through the parking lot. In order to verify the quality of the water, high-frequency sample tests are conducted at the beach.

Ashkelon beaches

About 12 kilometers of spectacular and spacious beaches adorn Ashkelon, a city whose sea is evident in its character at every step. The manicured and clean beaches of the southern pearl, some of which seem pristine and wild, are perfect not only for a refreshing swim, but also for an evening stroll in any season. Also, Along the beaches there is a large and beautiful promenade that is part of the way on cliffs overlooking the sea, and pleasant wide lawns, decorated with trees and spacious lawns. The promenade is located on the edge of a ridge adjacent to the sea, and allows vacationers a trip with a bonus: a spectacular view of the sea and the outskirts of the city. When visiting the city, do not miss a visit to the rich, sunny and peaceful beaches of Ashkelon, one of the city's most prominent landmarks. The marina in Ashkelon is an international marina with 600 berths for yachts. The spectacular marina is immersed in a magical atmosphere and magnetizes to it regular and casual blazers, sea lovers, who flock to it at any hour of the day. Six bathing beaches are available during the bathing season all days of the week, including holidays. Delila beach: A tidy bathing beach accessible to the disabled, with an area for renting sun loungers and parasols, toilets and showers and two buffets on the beach. Bar Kochba Beach: Perhaps the most beautiful beach in the city. Because the beach has two lifeguard booth the beach has become very wide. The beach has breakwaters so it is a beach with relatively calm water. The beach is handicapped accessible and has toilets and changing rooms, sun loungers and parasols for hire, and buffets. The beach of the national park: Entrance to this beach is only possible with a paid entrance to the national park. The great advantage of this beach is that even on usually busy days this beach is relatively vacant. This beach has no breakwaters so the water is relatively stormier. I highly recommend going to this beach if you have a cache subscription from the Nature and Parks Authority. The separate beach: A beach intended for the religious public and has separate days for men (Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays) and women (Sundays, Tuesdays, Thursdays). The beach is beautiful and clean, and has all the beach services needed.
