Surfing, sun-worshipping, or strolling with your pet - Tel Aviv has an option for every preference.
You choose which beach to visit.
The Hilton beaches offer the city's most varied stretch of coastline. You get here by heading way north, up to Independence Garden. From here there are three beach areas divided by rock outcroppings. To the north is a little corner famous for being the only beach where you can go with unleashed dogs (you'll recognise it immediately, of course!). Walking a few steps toward Independence Garden you'll find Tel Aviv's top gay beach, quiet and relaxed. To the south of this, crossing the last outcropping, the rougher surf will tell you you're at Tel Aviv's top surf spot - and indeed, a surfing destination of some reknown in the world.
