Tel Aviv is a terrific destination to enjoy a wedding, honeymoon, anniversary or romantic getaway.
Featuring a variety of restaurants, beaches, activities and attractions, here’s our special itinerary for making the most of your love-ly time in Tel Aviv:
Dining & Nightlife
Dallal: We recommend this restaurant for their pampering brunchon Fridays and Saturdays, but dinner is equally satisfying. Tucked away in a mini garden with outdoor seating, Dallal is located in Neve Tzedek, which offers a great shopping experience as well.
Vicky Cristina: With a large patio under an antique Ficus tree, thisSpanish tapas and wine bar at the Old Railway Station is really two places in one. Vicky is a tapas restaurant with intimate seating and soft background music, while Cristina is a wine bar surrounded by mosaic sculptures.
Par Derriere: This French wine bar also features outdoor seating in a secluded, garden-like setting, free from the loud city noise.
Beaches & Lookouts
Alma Beach: This beach offers a “peace and quiet” experience, away from the hustle and bustle on the rest of Tel Aviv’s Mediterranean coastline. Alma Beach, in south Tel Aviv, only has sunshades (no plastic chairs, sunbathing beds or lifeguards), so ask the front desk for a few beach towels, go lay out on the sand, and enjoy the view of Jaffa.
Trumpeldor Beach: Located directly across from Sea Executive Suites, this beach is where some of the most breathtaking sunsets take place in Tel
Aviv. Watch as day turns into night from one of our sea-view suites, or walk across the street and enjoy it from the boardwalk.
Gordon Beach Lookout: One of Tel Aviv’s most popular beaches, Gordon Beach has a path that extends out into the Mediterranean Sea. (The further you walk on the path, the quieter it gets.) To get there, walk one kilometer north from the hotel via the boardwalk. When you get to the big flight of stairs, turn left and you’ll see the beginning of the path, just to the left of the Tel Aviv Marina.
Old Jaffa Lookout: If you’re looking for that must-see lookout spot, this is it. The Old Jaffa lookout offers a full view of the Tel Aviv coastline, and it’s close to other great attractions like the Jaffa Flea Market, restaurants and shops, and the oldest seaport in the world. If you’re up for a 2.5-kilometer (1.5-mile) walk down the boardwalk, we recommend going there on foot.
Activities & Attractions
Wine Tasting: There are more than 200 wineries in Israel, but Villa Wilhelma Winery (12 kilometers / 13 miles east of the hotel) and Binyamina Winery (60 kilometers/ 37 miles north of the hotel) are two of the best and closest to Tel Aviv.
Rothschild Boulevard: Every major city has that must-see street, and in Tel Aviv it’s Rothschild. This trendy boulevard features Independence Hall (where Israel’s Declaration of Independence was signed in 1948), some of the city’s best architecture, the Habima Theater (Israel’s national theater) and the Fredric Mann Auditorium (home of the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra), restaurants and cafes, gardens, and bike and walking paths.
Bike on the Boardwalk: The Tel Aviv-Jaffa boardwalk is a bustling walkway that connects Old Jaffa in the south to Tel Aviv in north. Rent some Tel-O-Fun bikes and enjoy a leisure ride along the Mediterranean Sea.
HaYarkon Park: Located in north Tel Aviv, HaYarkon Park is home to plenty of free and paid activities, including a river, gardens, walking and bike paths, rock-climbing, and paddle boats.
