Old Tel Aviv Port Area, Tel Aviv

4.4
Stroll along Old Tel Aviv Port Area, where the city folk come out to eat, drink, and play in close proximity to the ocean. Originally established in the 1930s to serve as the main commercial harbor for the city, the "namal" (port) never quite lived up to that expectation. Today, the redeveloped area features a long boardwalk, lined by Israeli and international clothing stores, cafes, and restaurants. At night, the city's young residents swarm the many nightclubs and bars in the area, sometimes spilling onto the beach and invading the sand. Put Old Tel Aviv Port Area into our Tel Aviv road trip app and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • Beautiful place for walks, jogs or relaxing. Parking nearby only paid, did leave the car away in the city. There are many places where to eat, a couple of good shops and an art gallery.

  • Great area for s stroll on the beach boardwalk. Watch the ocean. Many restaurants and some shops. Worth while
  • Redeveloped area featuring warehouse style shops and restaurants. Quite sparse and lacking in atmosphere. Lots of potential.
  • Good place and lively place on evenings. Small restaurants nearby. Also small shops for clothes and shoes. Good to have evening walk and enjoy sunsets
  • Bustling, really busy on a sunny Saturday afternoon. Lovely place to be.
  • A bustling redeveloped old port packed with restaurants, clothes shops and bars. Also good for a walk to take in the sea views.

Where to stay in Tel Aviv

Dedicated to beach culture, Tel Aviv features many mid-range hotels facing the sea. Look for accommodations here if you plan to spend much of your time in or near the water. For easier access to top cultural attractions, opt for boutique establishments in the southern section of the city center, where you'll also find numerous restaurants and cafes. Alternatively, stylish options in Jaffa (the port area) provide access to the city's Arab heritage and a chance to discover a vibrant street life and numerous markets.
