A Guide to Israel’s Stunning Beaches

The Holy Land has many spectacular beaches that are worth checking out this summer! With so many surrounding seas, like the Mediterranean, the Dead Sea, and the Red Sea, there are many sandy beaches to explore.

Writers at Vogue Magazine give us a guide to Israel’s best beaches.

Tel Aviv

The White City’s perpetual sunshine draws people to its 13 beaches, which rest on a nine-mile stretch of Mediterranean seashore. A casual, walking city with sycamore-lined streets and clusters of Bauhaus architecture, beach life in Tel Aviv is part of the culture. “Life happens outside in Tel Aviv, in the cafés and on the streets,” said Ofra Ganor, owner of seaside restaurant Manta Ray at Alma Beach. “The connection to the sea is part of our daily life.”

Beachgoers traipse from sand to street, popping into restaurants with indelible views of the Mediterranean, such as Manta Ray, known for its mezze and fashionable crowd; chef Meir Adoni’s internationally renowned Israeli-Moroccan restaurant, Lumina, overlooking the Tel Aviv Marina; Cassis, a Mediterranean restaurant in the millennia-old port city of Jaffa; and Fortuna Del Mar for rustic fare in a more removed setting in the northern part of Tel Aviv.
