Millions of visitors come to Israel every year, and one of the most popular spots is the city of Tel Aviv. It is located on the Mediterranean coast and is home to museums, beaches, and more.
What Tel Aviv Has to Offer
Tel Aviv has some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. The water is crystal clear water, and there are lovely water-front cafes, rental sun loungers, and fresh-water showers that are perfect for the sun-worshipping tourists.
Jaffa is an old Arab port town with archaeological remains and beautiful architecture. Especially active in the evening hours, it also includes restaurants serving exquisite dinners and a very popular flea market, as well as a monastery and a bazaar with top-notch boutiques. It is the perfect spot for those tourists who love to shop and eat. If you love markets, make sure you visit one of the best ones in the area – the Carmel market. Set up like an old-fashioned Mideast market, it offers everything from fruits and vegetables to nuts and spices. It is truly a one-of-a-kind market.
