BEAT THE HEAT AT YOUR HOTEL IN TEL AVIV AND SOME OTHER SECRETS TO STAY COOL
The hot, sizzling summer of Tel Aviv is finally here. Both Israelis and tourists enjoy the healing benefits of the Mediterranean sun, but sometimes look for ways to stay cool during peak hours on super-hot days. Luckily, Tel Aviv has great options for staying cool when the need arises.
Make a Splash in Gordon Pool
The resort-like pool, fitted with beach beds, umbrellas and a stunning view, sits next to the Tel Aviv Marina on Gordon Beach, just a 10-minute walk from your hotel in Tel Aviv. They have a flexible plan, which is great for tourists, since you can purchase day passes. Gordon Pool is only open to members or pass holders. It’s a great way to stay cool without compromising the natural, healing minerals of the Mediterranean Sea since the pool is filled salt water that is rich in minerals. If you are traveling with kids, you can reap the benefits of the toddler pool, or the children’s pool. If you are a serious swimmer you can enjoy laps in their 50-meter olympic size pool.
Gordon Pool is located at 14 Peri St.
Cool off with Inspiration at the Tel Aviv Art Museum
There are many museums in Tel Aviv, but the Tel Aviv Art Museum is a beautiful and interesting museum that offers a wide variety of art, such as modern and contemporary art, Israeli art, architecture and design and rotating exhibits by talented artists. Not far from your hotel in Tel Aviv, (just a short bus ride away or a 30 minute walk) the museum is a great option for cooling off on a hot day, while admiring world-class art.
Tel Aviv Art Museum is located at 27 Shaul Hamelech Blvd.
Witness the Creative Scene Come Alive at Night at Kuli Alma
Located in South Tel Aviv, Kuli Alma is a unique venue that features musical performances and creative art exhibitions for the evening artsy crowd. An area of town for art enthusiasts, this place is a dream if you want an air conditioned evening activity aside from the usual movie theaters, or bars. It’s a rare opportunity to find an evening arts and cultural center that combines the best of both worlds in one place. As they describe themselves on their website: “Entering Kuli Alma reveals a kaleidoscope of vibrant street art murals, vintage films and art clips projected onto the walls and a winding staircase leading into our open-air courtyard.” Of course, you can go inside and cool off if the courtyard is too warm on a hot evening.
Kuli Alma is located at 10 Mikveh Israel st.
Sea Executive Suites: This summer’s Coolest Hotel in Tel Aviv
It is ideal to stay centrally located at a hotel in Tel Aviv that is close to all of the attractions and restaurants in the city, and across from the stunning beach.
Even better, pick a hotel that also has a stunning lobby where you can relax in air conditioning with a good book, or sit and chat with your travel companions, as you enjoy the view of the sea across the street.
