Givat Aliyah Beach - The southernmost beach in Tel Aviv-Jaffa
Givat Aliyah is the southernmost beach in Tel Aviv-Jaffa and is close to Bat Yam Beach, one of the favourite beaches of the locals. This, the port of Jaffa and other districts of Tel Aviv are easy to reach via specially constructed connecting paths. The vast Midron Park is located on the northern border of the beach next to the district of Adjami, which the beach belongs to. Some locals therefore call the beach Adjami Beach.
You will find a long, wide, sandy beach which is ideal for a romantic walk in the sunset. On the slightly elevated promenade many locals also gather in the evening to enjoy the end of the day from one of the numerous benches.
The Givat Aliyah Beach was built in a unique style and has impressive ornate stone arches, tall palms and chic sandstone. In the background towers the architecturally striking Peres Center for Peace, a non-profit organisation which has set itself the task of promoting lasting peace and progress in the Middle East.
Singles during the week, families at the weekend.
The beach is popular with both young and old. At the weekends and during the holidays many Arab families come here for a picnic. They also have barbecues here, although this is actually forbidden at Givat Aliyah Beach. It is worth noting that this is one of the few beaches in Tel Aviv where Jews and Arabs share the beach peacefully.
During the week many groups of young people gather here to relax with a cold beer or play matkot.
