Pier / Boardwalk Tourist Spot
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. A visit to Old Tel Aviv Port Area represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Tel Aviv family vacation planner to plot your vacation.

  • Nice area to walk around and look at the sea. Many bars and cafes. Also good for jogging in the morning or evening.
  • Lovely place for an afternoon walk with the family. The place is packed with people. Parking is a mess, but there so much picture opportunities that you'll forget about that
  • Nice place to walk around. A bit crowded.
  • Beautiful views of the Mediterranean with so many restaurants and entertainment... The Old Tel Aviv Port is a must see!
  • A nice area to walk around. There are also some nice shops and cafes around. Its easy to find and everything is easy to find.
