Tel Aviv's shore is 14 km long. A new boardwalk runs along the beach from Bat Yam in the south up to Herzliya in the north. If you want to escape the craziness of the city and unwind for a bit or breath some fresh salty air, head West toward the Mediterranean Sea. There is no better way to clear your thought than staring at the ocean. Tel Aviv beaches are well equipped with plastic beach chairs, wide beach umbrellas, restaurants and of course lifeguards stations.
