Banana Beach

A great spot for enjoying a drink, Banana Beach is one of the most popular beaches among Tel Aviv locals. An ideal spot for relaxation or a casual drink, Banana beach is often filled with the “ping ponging” sound of “matkot” – an Israeli paddle ball game that is played all along the shoreline. There are many low tables, loungers, and umbrellas available (for a small fee). A perfect place to take in the sunset after a fun-filled beach day overlooking the stunning Mediterranean Sea.
