This long stretch of pristine white sand is the perfect place to relax and escape the busy streets of Tel Aviv.

Despite its urban setting, Jerusalem Beach is remarkably clean. The clear blue waters are perfect for a swim, and with lifeguards present year round, it’s a great place for families too. Find plenty of places to eat and drink along the promenade.

The beach was given its misleading name when it was presented by Shlomo Lahat, mayor of Tel Aviv from 1974 to 1993, to Teddy Koleck, the former mayor of Jerusalem. The name has stuck since then, although you may hear locals refer to it as Geula beach. Keep this in mind when asking for directions, as the beach is located at the end of Geula Street.

Walk the Tel Aviv Promenade, running the length of the coastline, and notice Jerusalem Beach’s excellent sporting facilities. This includes volleyball courts, as well as playgrounds for younger visitors.

Jerusalem Beach is a popular place for the Israeli ball game “matkot.” Similar to beach tennis, it is played with two paddles and a small, hard ball. Listen out for the tapping noise that accompanies the game, or play a round yourself.

If the long days of Mediterranean sunshine get too much, take a short bus or taxi ride inland to visit Tel Aviv’s famous diamond exchange. Find the Harry Oppenheimer Diamond Museum located inside. This fascinating attraction offers an insight into one of Israel’s top industries.

Jerusalem Beach is located centrally, near to downtown Tel Aviv. The beach’s position means that it is best accessed on foot or by public transportation as parking is limited. But you will find it well-equipped with everything you need for a day at the beach. Sun loungers and umbrellas are easy to rent. Make use of the excellent facilities, which include public toilets and showers, as well as tourist information. It is the ideal location to take some time out.
