Beautiful beach
Jan 2020
A few friends and I walked to Banana Beach before breakfast one morning in Tel Aviv. And it was a beautiful beach to walk on, take pictures/selfies, and enjoy the view! Tel Aviv has great beaches (all different and good for different things/activities). This one is great for walking, looking for seashells, enjoying the view, and taking photos. We were there in winter, but I did notice that there were umbrellas and beach volleyball courts, so maybe in the summer it's a more fun, active beach?!

Fantastic beach - sandy, waves, cafes & bars nearby
Sep 2019
This is a great beach for many reasons - the sand is lovely and soft, there are waves at this beach which vary depending on the weather, but they are mostly great body surfing waves and ones you can dive underneath. The water temperature is warm and the water clear.

There are bars/cafes nearby with good choices and easy walking distance. There are clean water facilities to rinse down your sandy feet etc and some nice undercover areas if you want to enjoy the outdoors without the possible sunburn.

Nice beach where you can enjoy life of TLV
Sep 2019 • Business
This beach is always crowded of locals and tourists, because it’s close to many hotels and easy to reach from the city center, plus there are a lot of activities you can do here, and also bar and the restaurant with same name.
And, in a couple of kilometres by walk you can reach Old Jaffa. Nice.

Great day spent at the beach
Aug 2019 • Family
The Aviv Beach section, a bit South from Banana beach has a nice restaurant, bar, convenience store and surf school with a separated section for the surfers.

Aviv Beach has a nice wave, but it is not strong enough to hurt little children. The usual amenities like umbrellas, chairs and loungers can be rented at the vending machines. Dressing rooms and toilets are available next to one of the bars.

Recommended for families, couples or friends.

Great view BUT not a fair and reasonable price for the view
Aug 2019 • Couples
We were looking to have nice breakfast on the beach so we went to the place have had a breakfast.
The place is indeed on the beach, amazing view, free entrance and parking.
BUT...
Most seats are outside so if it’s hot... and the prices are really not fair. And the food doesn’t worth the expensive price they ask. They are asking much more then reasonable!!
Warmly recommend to go at the evening, have a beer or coffee ONLY and enjoy the sunset and the atmosphere. Or go in the morning for a coffee. Don’t eat - the food doesn’t worth the price...

Treated myself to a birthday of watching waves. Filled up my heart and soul. Would have been better if showers/bathrooms/drinking water were more accessible.

Safe and beautiful beach with many free attractions!

What we liked about the beach in Tel Aviv: there are many free-and-paid activities you can do all day: volleyball, stand-up paddle boarding, surfing, beach tennis, giant swings, beach-bikes, beach-scooters, football, work-out, cool art-and-statues etc-etc

Plenty of places to take cool pictures =)

Crowded & not the cleanest
Jul 2019 • Family
It was crowded, fair enough, it was hot, but people really don’t understand about private space. I can touch my neighbor beach goer just by stretching out my arm. They just edge up to you. I had this pervy guy starring at my teenage daughter. I didn’t know you had to pay for umbrellas and chairs (6s each) and lounging chairs costs 12s. Someone dressed in yellow patrolled around the beach checking that you have your tickets. After you buy your ticket, this guy would come and dig a hole for you to put your beach umbrella in and give you a chair. It was an interesting experience. I have been to nicer and cleaner beaches. The sand had cigarette butts, food and all sorts of bits and pieces. Jelly fish were plenty and they were huge around here. At least this place had a toilet, open showers and a first aid station.

Great Beach with plenty of chairs umbrellas for rent anda great restaurant
Jun 2019 • Family
Don't miss a day at the beach in Tel aviv. Not a spec of trash or seaweed to be found. The water was clean and the perfect temperature. There are Waves but not anything to large.
Many vendors rent , chairs, umbrellas , chaises etc. Don't miss the restaurant- with white umbrellas. great relaxing vibe with large menu and wonderful cocktails. Family friendly.
Great hummus, , foccacia appetizers. The schnitzel and salads were large and delicious.
