Tel Aviv is a focus of interest. "Lonely Planet" has included Tel Aviv as one of the world's top ten beach cities. The travel guide ranks Tel Aviv's beach in seventh place, saying that the city is the "total flipside" of Jerusalem.
"Tel Aviv is the total flipside of Jerusalem, a modern Sin City on the sea rather than an ancient Holy City on a hill. When the weather is warm Tel Avivans flock en masse to the city beaches. You’ll find young and old soaking up the Mediterranean rays, kitesurfing and knocking back and forth little rubber balls during friendly matches of matkot. The beaches are safe and clean, and there are changing rooms and freshwater showers scattered along its length. The main beaches are packed with people most days, especially on Saturdays, when the crowds descend to pick a prime spot. Get here early," Lonely Planet writes.
