In Tel Aviv, hotels with their own beach area rarity, since most of them are located at some distance from the sea. Most often, our compatriots, who dream of their own recreation area on the shore, book hotels with convenient access to the beach, which allows not to cross the busy streets.
Russians who visited Tel Aviv,great enthusiasm about the coast of this city. In addition to the zones already described, Nordau deserves attention. Its territory is fenced off from others by a high wall, and everyone who comes here clearly knows the schedule according to which six days of the week are divided equally between men and women, and Saturday is common, when you can relax on the beach all together. It is interesting that our compatriots on women's days come here with pleasure to sunbathe topless.
Also good reviews leave ourcompatriots about the smallest beach in the city - Metsizima. There are young couples who spend time very fun here. If you go to this beach on a working day, you will be able to appreciate its beauty, but on weekends it is simply impossible to get through here.
