One of the most famous and crowded beaches with plenty of 'to do's' is Gordon Beach in Tel Aviv. Another well-known location is Banana Beach. Situated near Jaffa, it gathers thrilled watchers of local singing, dancing, and drum circles. Metzitzim Beach is a perfect spot for your family holidays, as it offers games like matkot (paddleball) and children's playground.

Keep in mind that it's unbearably hot at lunchtime, so make sure your sunbathing time is before 11 am and after 4 pm. Israeli beach season starts in May, so you may check all the activities when it's less hot than in the middle of summer.
