The Best Tel Aviv beaches close to White Villa Hotel
When it comes to beach cities, Tel Aviv is hard to beat. Visitors to the celebrated White City can take their pick from over a dozen distinct beaches, stretching along some 14 kilometres of Mediterranean coastline. Each beach has its own character, from family favorites to sporty hangouts and flirty social hubs, so it’s worth considering which will best suit your own beach vibe. Guests at White Villa Hotel are well-placed to discover Tel Aviv’s best beaches, so read on to discover the best Tel Aviv beaches you can visit during your stay.
A popular choice with families thanks to its calm, shallow waters and attentive lifeguards, Metzitzim is a quick cab ride from the hotel (or a walk of around 35 minutes, if you want to pack in some sightseeing en-route). It’s well equipped with showers, sports facilities, and beach chair rental, and laid back beach cafes ensure a steady flow of food and drink to keep everybody happy.
Popular with a sporty crowd, Trumpeldor is one of the best beaches within easy reach of White Villa Hotel Tel Aviv. Locals and out-of-towners come here to play soccer, use the outdoor gym facilities, or just admire the spectacular sunset, and everybody appreciates the shaded areas when the sun is high in the sky! There are good showers for cleaning off after a swim or sports session, too.
Located at the northern end of Tel Aviv’s scenic stretch of coastline, Tel Baruch Beach is well worth the half-hour drive or cab ride from White Villa Boutique Hotel. One of the most scenic stretches of sand anywhere in the city, with excellent facilities and (paid) parking, it’s a spectacular place for a day’s swimming and sunbathing, followed by a sundowner drink and a bite to eat at the waterfront restaurant. Active types can hike, cycle or run along the beachside trails, and there’s an al-fresco gym where gym bunnies can work out and work on their tans at the same time.
Around 20 minutes’s drive from White Villa, Tel Aviv’s bustling port is a popular destination for shopping, drinking, and dining, but not everybody is aware that it also harbors some lovely sandy beaches. Continue walking (or cycling) north of the port to discover sheltered, sandy strands with trails that lend themselves well to an afternoon’s exploring on foot or two wheels.
