Cycling along the beach promenade - Tel Aviv-Yafo

Cycling along the beach promenade

Cycle along the Beach Promenade

In October 2011 a bicycle trail was complted along the Herbert Samuel beach promenade.
The trail has two lanes, one in each direction. It is located between the sidewalk and the road. There are even special traffic lights for bicycles at 3 pedestrian zebra crossings.
You can either use your own bike, or rent one in a "rent-a-bike" stand on the promenade.

It's a pleasure to ride along the promenade, feel the breeze, see the world go by on the promenade...

Address: Along the Herbert Samuel Promenade.

Beach bat players on a Tel-Aviv beach - Tel Aviv-Yafo

Beach bat players on a Tel-Aviv beach

Play Beach Bats! Beach Activities Review

On the Tel-Aviv beaches you can take part in Israel's most popular beach sport: play beach bats with round wooden bats and a firm rubber ball.

You will be amazed by the speed and energy of the game when played by the "semi-professionals" on the beach!
It sometimes looks more like a high-speed squash game than a leisurely beach game.

So, watch the pros play and try it yourself!

Address: On any beach!

Working out on the Tel-Aviv beach

Workout on the Beach Beach Activities Review

On Tel-Aviv's beaches, open to everyone, there are open-air 'mini-fitness-centers" with weights and other gym equipment (see photos).
If you want to add some workout to lazing away on the beach, this is your chance!

Directions: On several of Tel-Aviv's public beaches.

The Tel-Aviv 10k Night Run

Tel-Aviv by night; 15,000 runners converge on Rabin Square and start running up Ibn-Gvirol Street. A huge mass of people wearing identical T-shirts is on the move. You can feel the excitement and the adrenalin in the air. The runners cross the Yarkon bridge, turn right into Rokach Boulevard, and after 5km leave the road, turn into the riverside park of Ganei-Yehoshua and start heading back in a westward direction.

On the way we see the Tel-Avivians watching from the sidewalks and cheering, there are DJs playing loud music along the way, and at the end there is a "happening" atmosphere, free mineral water, popsicles, energy bars, music, medals...
The race is 10km long, takes place on one of the evenings in October, and is lots of fun!
