Here’s your chance to explore a rich culture while you’re away on your sandy getaway. And you get to pick from 16 beautiful beaches along Israel’s Mediterranean coast. Tel Aviv is also easy to reach thanks to all the low-cost flights from Europe.
The environmentally friendly Blue Flag Metzitzim Beach calls out to surfers and kiteboarders in winter when daytime temperatures hover in the mid-to-high 60s. But if these activities aren’t for you, you can just lay out and enjoy the lovely weather.
Be sure to also stop for a selfie with the playful statue of David Ben-Gurion, Israel’s first prime minister, doing a headstand at Frishman Beach. Or you can check out the area using the city’s shared bikes or scooters.
The Tal by the Beach lodgings offers modern rooms with rates including a daily breakfast and bike rentals.
