Old Tel Aviv Port

Vacation Travel Guide
Old Tel Aviv Port which includes a coastal town and a bay or harbor

Enjoy a stroll along the boardwalk, dine out in style and then party with the locals at a trendy club in Tel Aviv’s reinvented former port. 

Check out the Old Tel Aviv port, one of Israel’s coolest places to shop, dine and party. Join the locals by strolling, cycling or rollerblading over its long wooden deck or simply enjoy the views.

This former working port has awoken from its decades-long slumber and has been thrown a lifeline when politician turned architect Orna Angel had the vision to turn it into a trendy waterfront recreational hub at the turn of the millennium.

As you enter the renovated docks of the Old Tel Aviv Port, take a moment to ponder the huge transformation of this former industrial hub. Built in the 1930s, it was a regular trading port until World War II broke out. First the British Navy took over the facilities and then the ongoing Jewish-Arab conflict halted the development of the port. The Tel Aviv Port shut down in 1965 when the docks and other operations were moved to the newly developed Ashdod Port.

Walk along the port’s wave-like wooden deck that lines the promenade. With views over the water on one side and rows of shops, restaurants and cafés on the other, this boardwalk symbolizes the connection of this port to the city of Tel Aviv.

Find a café for lunch and order a cool drink with a fresh seafood meal. In the port’s shops, try on items from famous Israeli fashion brands in glitzy boutiques. Time your visit to catch one of the many events and festivals held in the port. From antiques fairs through to concerts, there is often something exciting on, especially in the summer months.

In the late afternoon, shoppers and families start heading home, your signal to have a meal before immersing yourself in some of Tel Aviv’s best nightlife. The lit-up boardwalk becomes the place to see and be seen for young people and others who are drawn to the port’s lively bars and clubs.

The Old Tel Aviv Port is located to the north of the city center. Taking a bus or taxi to get here is recommended, because parking spaces are limited. This is a public area, so entry is free of charge.
