As you watch the sun set into the Mediterranean, let the constant click of matkot paddles lull you into a trance. Looking at the hues is simply incredible, and savouring such beauty at the end of a long and tiring day is simply a blessing and inspiration.

This spot is just a 5 minutes' walk from Tel Aviv's crowded Dizengoff Boulevard, just grab a shake and a carry your favourite book just in case you reach early, pick a spot on the sand or limestone rocks near the coast, and you have front row seats to the most magnificent sunset in Israel.

Hilton Beach

Just a quick walk from the city centre is one of the most fun, young and vibrant Tel Aviv beaches. With 14 kms of coastline, this beach is packed with facilities, a luxurious beach club tlv that offers everything from delicious cocktails and great food to good music and some real fancy amenities. FYI it is frequented by celebrities, is disabled friendly and even has a corner for your furry friends!

Tel Aviv and Jaffa

One of the greatest ways to enjoy the sunset is to stroll or cycle down Tel Aviv's beach promenade up to Jaffa, which is lined with palm trees, beach bars, and restaurants like Calypso and Manta Ray.

Tel Aviv Port


After a long day of seeing Tel Aviv, nothing beats taking in the stunning evening skies before the nightlife kicks into high gear. Several Tel Aviv beaches and promenades, notably those in the Old Port neighbourhood, are excellent places to unwind. You may see the old city of Jaffa silhouetted against the setting light if you look out to sea to your left.

Another great spot to view the sunset is north of Tel Aviv, right behind the commercial mall and eateries. Under sun umbrellas, cool concrete seats await you on the wooden port front row seats. Walk down the promenade, watch the waves crash against the concrete wall, youngsters chasing the waves, Tel-Aviv port is calm, hidden, and always lends a brilliant view of the setting sun.
Herzliya & Arsuf
Herzliya, located just north of Tel Aviv, has a gorgeous beach, a marina, and an ancient fortification that dates back more than 2,500 years. If you want to stretch your legs some more, why not walk around these places?

Sea of Galilee


The Sea of Galilee, also known as the Kinneret in Israel, is a freshwater lake in northern Israel. The lake is surrounded by natural splendour, including the Golan's rolling hills and the Jordan River valley. The higher part offers brilliant views of the lake. You'll be amazed as the evening light reflects across the water's surface, creating a stunning ambience and a rainbow of hues.

The Dead Sea

The Dead Sea is the world's lowest spot on land. It's also one of the saltiest bodies of water on the planet, making it a popular tourist destination.
