About the BeachThe Israeli beaches have long been Westernized, modern, touristy and, to a large extent, sad to say, boring. One of the last beaches in Israel that still has the feeling of an authentic and pleasant beach is the beach of Givat Aliya in Jaffa. The beautiful beach includes free parking and is located in the Arab Ajami neighborhood. If you do not try to remember that it is in Tel Aviv, you can imagine that you are on the shores of Morocco, Tunisia or another Arab country - all in the best sense of the word! Because this beach, or Ajami beach, is a pleasant beach, whose design is in the style of the shores of the past.
It is designed with a kind of balconies, oriental arches, palm trees and sandstone structures. At its edges are natural blue coves, sand dunes with horseback riders who sometimes cross the beach and seem to be detached from old movies. And there is a cozy café in the center.
The beach has a natural reef and is fun to swim in, while in the center there is a lifeguard and it is recommended to swim in this safe area.
On the northern side of the beach is the Jaffa slope park, a pleasant Jaffa complex on the seashore, about one kilometer long and 200,000 square meters in size. It has many grassy areas, walking trails, cycling and more.
Once, we'll tell you quietly, there was a dump here. The Tel Aviv municipality used this beach as the main dump of the large city. But over the years, the city's leaders understood the enormity of the mistake and turned the former dump into this pleasant and peaceful Mediterranean park.
