Surfing activities in Tel Aviv
A relaxed Tel Aviv beach.
When the weather is warm Tel Avivans flock to the city beaches en masse. Here you'll find bronzed bods soaking up the Mediterranean rays, kite surfing and the knocking back and forth of little rubber balls in friendly matches of matkot (Israeli beach tennis).
The beaches are safe and clean, with changing rooms and freshwater showers scattered along its length. Swimmers, however, must heed lifeguard warnings when conditions become rough; a black flag means that swimming is forbidden; red means that swimming is dangerous and you certainly shouldn't swim by yourself; white means that the area is safe.
