Banana Beach

Tel Aviv

Just north of Alma Beach and south of Jerusalem Beach, this beach is a peaceful spot with a 24/7 beach bar, beach volleyball court and a surf school. Stretching to the derelict Dolphinareum nightclub, it's a good pick for a sunny laze with a mostly local crowd, which gives it a much more chilled out vibe.
