Tel Aviv: Life’s a Beach

tel-aviv-hotel-beachTel Aviv has made National Geographic’s Top 10 Beach Cities in the World list, coming in at number 9.

Call it Miami Beach on the Med. Tel Aviv is the Dionysian counterpart to religious Jerusalem. In the “bubble,” as it’s known for its inhabitants’ tendency to tune out regional skirmishes, some restaurants, discos, and clubs are open until dawn. By day, the scene shifts to the city’s promenade and eight miles (13 kilometers) of beach literally steps from town. Head to wide and sandy Gordon Beach to sit in a seaside café or take a dip in the saltwater pool.

This comes on the heels of Travel+Leisure Magazine ranking Jerusalem as the best city in Africa and the Middle East, with Tel Aviv at number 3, and Ask Men ranking Tel Aviv as the 14th best city in the world to live in.

But back to the National Geographic list – I’m just glad they decided to deal with Israeli water in a fair fashion this time around.
