Travel through the sands of time on this exclusive cruise with world renowned Egyptologist, Dr. Hawas.
Whether or not there are beaches often comes into play when travelers are planning their latest excursion. Whether it is the picturesque coastline of Australia or the well-populated beaches in Brazil, relaxing in the sand has long been a vacation staple. This is especially true when it comes to Israel tours, as the capital city of Tel Aviv is home to some of the most impressive beaches not only in the Middle East, but in the world.
Plenty to choose from
One of the most appealing aspects of Tel Aviv's beaches is the sheer number of them. There is an estimated eight miles of coastline just steps from the bustling city, according to National Geographic. When it comes to spending hours at the beach, you can't go wrong but if you want to check out the best Tel Aviv has to offer, you should head to Gordon Beach.
The sand may not be any finer and the water may not be any clearer than at Gordon Beach, which offers a variety of activities that other beaches in the White City do not. Specifically, you can go from lounging at one of the many seaside cafes lining the shore to swimming in the Mediterranean in just a few minutes. Plus, with numerous hotels located nearby you can plan your whole Tel Aviv experience around this popular destination.
More than just beaches
Lounging on Gordon Beach is a must during any tour of Israel, but there is much more to do in Tel Aviv. For instance, you should try and get to the Jaffa Flea Market. Experts say the best time to go is early Sunday morning, when you're apt to find the best deals, but if you're just looking to experience this cultural tradition, any day from Sunday through Thursday will have you walking away feeling happy.
Make the transition to Egypt
The location of Tel Aviv also makes it easy for travelers to transition to a tour of Egypt. Israel's neighbor to the southwest, Egypt is a must see for history and archeology buffs. There are countless ancient landmarks to visit, including the legendary burial ground of Saqqara, which is most famous for being home to the Pyramid of Djoser, but is also home to other iconic tourist destinations including tthe Pyramid Complex of Unas
