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.

  • In Tel Aviv, one port, built during the Arab revolt in the 36 year since Arabs blocked the port of Jaffa. Many people confuse Jaffa port with the port of Tel Aviv, both do not work today. In Jaffa parked yachts and local fishermen with the tourist beat. In Tel Aviv, except that a couple of boats. At the Welcome screen, the Jaffa port. So I see all the same meaning Jaffa port. In the port you can climb aboard the pleasure craft and out to sea for half an hour somewhere. On Friday various musicians, clowns, jugglers.

  • Friendly and atmospheric though undoubtedly a tourist trap. Avoid the overpriced restaurants in the old port and head instead into the town where there are lots of more interesting eateries. There's a...  more »

  • Great area for s stroll on the beach boardwalk. Watch the ocean. Many restaurants and some shops. Worth while
  • This district is a series of renovated industrial buildings that are now retail, restaurants and a few bars. It's not ugly or bad by any means, but I don't think there's any special reason to visit as a tourist.
  • 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.
