Tel Aviv Holidays

Get inspiration

TEL AVIV TRIP? TICK.

In recent years, vibrant Tel Aviv has been making waves on the city break scene – and it’s not hard to see why. Holidays to Tel Aviv serve up knockout beaches, cultural sites, fantastic cuisine and great nightlife. It’s artsy, lively and effortlessly cool. And, to top it all off, this wonderful city offers a genuinely warm welcome to all its visitors.

On the west coast of Israel, Tel Aviv seamlessly blends age-old culture with modern living. It’s a city of contrasts, where UNECO-protected buildings and bustling souks rub shoulders with mural-covered lanes and hip clubs. You can spend your days visiting fascinating art museums and browsing trinket-filled markets, and your evenings bar-hopping along the seafront. And, if you feel like staying out late, Tel Aviv’s pulsing nightlife will never disappoint.

But we can’t talk about Tel Aviv holidays without mentioning the beaches. This city’s coastline stretches for more than eight miles, and the beaches comes in all shapes and sizes. Families with little ones will love the paddle-friendly waters of Frishman Beach, while Alma Beach is popular with surfers. You can sip sundowners on Mezizim Beach, or immerse yourself in Hilton Beach’s friendly LGBT+ scene.

Couples, families and friends alike will love this city – but, above all, Tel Aviv holidays are perfect for foodies. Coffee culture is a big deal here, so you’ll have no trouble getting your caffeine fix. And you can feast on delicious Israeli dishes all day long. Enjoy egg-and-tomato based shakshuka for breakfast, tuck into a falafel-filled pitta at lunchtime, and nibble on juicy barbecued skewers for dinner.

Whether you’re drawn to the city’s beaches, culture, nightlife or dining scene, a holiday to Tel Aviv ticks all the boxes – and we’ll help you sort every detail. Speak to our experts to start planning your trip.

Tel Aviv beaches

No holiday to Tel Aviv would be complete without some beach time. Brushed by the Mediterranean Sea, the city’s coastline stretches for 14 kilometres and offers a range of powdery beaches. Bograshov Beach is one of our favourites. Always bustling, this central spot often has yoga classes, while the calm waters are ideal for paddle-boarding. Or you could head to the secluded Hilton Beach. Popular with the LGBT+ community, this scenic beach is super-clean and great for watersports.

Prefer your beaches to be little quieter? Head further south to Alma Beach for crowd-free sands and top-notch surfing. Or, if you’re taking the kids to Tel Aviv, check out Frishman Beach – a family-friendly stretch with a netted swimming area, playgrounds and plenty of restaurants.

You should also spend an evening hopping between the sea-views bars of Mezizim Beach. You can get comfy on a beanbag in a shisha bar and admire the sunset, with an ice-cold drink in hand. And, if you’re in Tel Aviv on a Friday, make sure you stroll along Dolphinarium Beach to soak up the festival-like vibe created by live musicians and singers.

Things to do in Tel Aviv

You’ll want to pack some comfy shoes, because the best way to discover Tel Aviv is on foot. This vibrant city is extremely walkable, and you’ll be able to explore dozens of fascinating neighbourhoods. You can meander down the Instagrammable lanes of Neve Tzedek, admiring the architecture as you go. Weave through Florentin’s street art-covered walkways, and stroll along the UNESCO-listed Rothschild Boulevard.

Tel Aviv is crammed with cultural attractions, too. Tel Aviv Museum of Art and the Centre for Contemporary Art are must-visits for art enthusiasts, while the city’s souks hold treasures of a different kind. Foodies will love Carmel Market and Levinsky Market, where stalls are piled high with fresh produce and colourful spices. Or you could head to Jaffa Flea Market for rich fabrics, jewellery, antiques and household knick-knacks.
If you need a pick-me-up after all that exploring, Tel Aviv has got you covered. You can expect to find all sorts of artisan cafés serving handcrafted java, including delicious cafe ha’fooch – an Israeli latte.

Tel Aviv nightlife

With everything from sleek cocktail bars and beach clubs to hipster hideaways and super-clubs, Tel Aviv’s nightlife scene has something for everyone. Fancy a handcrafted cocktail at sunset? No problem. Want to stay out until the early hours? Go for it. Most bars in Tel Aviv don’t get busy until midnight, so you can really let your hair down in this energetic city.

You’ll find the main hub of Tel Aviv’s nightlife at the southern end of Rothschild Boulevard, where the surrounding streets are filled with all kinds of bars and clubs. You can see lively DJ sets at Kuli Alma, dance the night away at the Breakfast Club – one of the city’s top nightclubs – or have a fun-filled night out at popular gay bar, Evita.

If edgy bars are more your thing, make tracks for the Florentin neighborhood. Reminiscent of London’s Shoreditch, this oh-so-cool area is filled with underground bars and alternative dance clubs, as well as several high-end watering holes.

Best time to visit Tel Aviv

It’s best to plan your Tel Aviv holiday for spring or autumn, when you can look forward to balmy sunshine. In May, June, September and October, temperatures tend to hover in the low-to-mid twenties, but it can still reach 30°C on a particularly warm day. And the coastal breeze keeps things fresh, meaning you’ll have perfect conditions for both sunbathing and sightseeing. If you visit in the second week of June, you’ll also be able to experience the carnival-like atmosphere of Tel Aviv Pride.

Whether you’re a hardcore sun-worshipper, though, you might prefer to visit Tel Aviv in the height of summer. Temperatures average 27°C in July and August, but regularly soar much higher – and, owing to the humidity, it will feel a lot hotter.
The winter months are relatively cool. Tel Aviv is still warmer than the UK – as temperatures hover in the mid-teens – but the real problem is the rain. December to February is very wet, so it’s best not to plan your Tel Aviv trip for this time of year.
