Gordon Beach

Vacation Travel Guide
Gordon Beach featuring a coastal town, a sandy beach and swimming

Swim in the Mediterranean Sea, surf the waves, play a game of beach volleyball and enjoy the relaxing nightlife vibe of this popular beach at the heart of Tel Aviv.

Gordon Beach boasts the inviting blue waters of the Mediterranean and a sandy beach on one side and the bustling city center of Tel Aviv on the other. Because of its central location and its comfortable facilities, Gordon Beach has long been a favorite summer destination for Israelis and international visitors alike and attracts an eclectic mix of sun worshippers.

Dig your toes into the sands of Gordon Beach and gaze out over the calm, blue waters of the Mediterranean Sea. Take a refreshing dive into the waves and stretch out on a beach towel to let the sun dry your skin. For added comfort, rent one of the many sun loungers set beneath the shade of a beach umbrella. Order a cold drink or treat yourself to an ice cream while gazing out to sea.

Get active by trying some of the sporting activities available at Gordon Beach. You may never have heard of “matkot,” a traditional local game involving two hard rackets and a small rubber ball, but you’ll pick it up in no time. Beach volleyball is a big favorite with the younger crowds, who may ask you to join in.

To venture out a little, cycle along the promenade to the next beach or rent a stand-up paddleboard to paddle out to sea. If the wind picks up, surfing or windsurfing are great options too.

As the day ends, the beach takes on a different mood. Watch as nature puts on a colorful display at sunset until evening falls, shifting your focus from the beach to the bars and restaurants along its promenade. Try grilled seafood with a salad of greens, feta, tomatoes and olives or a falafel pita with eggplant or tahini for Middle Eastern flavors with a hint of Mediterranean cuisine. The vibe on the beach changes once more when the DJs take over and the nightlife kicks in.

Gordon Beach, across from the Sheraton Hotel, is easily reached on foot from many central hotels. Finding a parking space can be hard during weekends and summer time, so if you are coming from the outer suburbs, consider renting a Tel-O-Fun city bike from your nearest docking station in Tel Aviv.
