Best places to see in Israel

Gordon Beach
Popular Areas
Anyone for a game of “matkot”? This tennis-like game is a smash hit with the Gordon Beach regulars. The hypnotic “tap-tap” of ball against wooden paddle wafts up and down this busy beach. The ball games don’t stop there, either. If you fancy yourself as an aviator-clad “Top Gun” type, there are several volleyball courts where you can live out your Maverick fantasy. Limber up!
Accommodations near Gordon Beach
Rothschild Boulevard
Popular Areas
Bow down to Bauhaus! Tel Aviv’s most prestigious address is like an open-air museum of Bauhaus architecture. This famously functional aesthetic took root in the 1930s when a raft of Jewish architects migrated to Tel Aviv. It was here, in Independence Hall, where the State of Israel was declared in 1948. Grab an ice cream from a kiosk and gaze around at its architectural gems.
Accommodations near Rothschild Boulevard
Hatachana Compound
Landmarks
All change, please! This 19th-century railway station used to ferry passengers between Jaffa and Jerusalem. It’s recently been reinvented as a cultural and commercial space, swapping signals for stores, and carriages for cafés. In addition, HaTachana plays host to a packed programme of artistic events, from live music and organic markets to street theatre for kids.

The Old Jaffa Port
Landmarks
This port is steeped in tales. It was here – they say – that Jonah set sail before his unfortunate encounter with a whale. As you look around, the history is still palpable. Old stone buildings rise gently up the hill, spires poke above the rumpled skyline, as fishing boats bob lazily below. Wander along the waterfront before feasting on a prize catch at Fleamarket Restaurant.

Hilton Beach
Popular Areas
Hilton Beach marries two of Tel Aviv’s strongest suits – beaches and open-mindedness. The frothy waves kicked up by a reef make it the city’s foremost surf spot. It’s also a place that’s open to all persuasions, where skimpy beach wear, mochaccino suntans and glistening six-packs are de rigueur. Swing by during Pride to see it in all its carnal glory.
Accommodations near Hilton Beach
Carmel Market
Shopping Areas
A market of miscellanea. This old market dazzles in kaleidoscope shades and surprises with its diversity. Freshly ground hummus, blood-red pomegranates, vivid strawberry punnets, sacks of seeds, crocheted prayer caps, tin stars of David – you name it, Carmel’s probably got it. Grab a fresh “bureka” (stuffed pastry) from a stall and sharpen your bartering skills!
