The Tel Aviv municipality is promoting a series of family-friendly events for parents whose children will not be in school during the Passover holiday, including street fairs, story hours, children’s plays, and more. More information and a detailed list of events are available on the municipality’s website.
Then, immediately following Passover, April 27 marks the official start of beach season in Tel Aviv. Every year, more than 8.5 million people visit the city’s 9 miles of white sandy beaches, which are known around the world as the number-one hangout stretch for Israelis and visitors alike.
Amenities available at every beach include: sun chairs and beach umbrellas (which you can rent for just 6 shekel each), restrooms, outdoor gyms, restaurants, ice-cream shops, and free public Wi-Fi. Lifeguard and security services are provided during the beach season.
Each of Tel Aviv’s 13 beautiful beaches has its own distinct character. Gordon is known as a great spot for beach volleyball, and Hilton is popular with the LGBT community, as well as thrill seekers looking to wind or kite surf. Geula Beach has a more relaxed, less crowded vibe, and the religious communities often gather at Nordau Beach, which offers separate days for men’s and women’s swimming.
At the promenade in Old Jaffa, the municipality has joined a global trend of setting up oversized photo frames for tourists. The frame includes a spectacular view of the sea and the coastline, inviting visitors to take a unique photo to share on social media.
