Five must-do's if you are visiting Tel Aviv

Natalie Seeff, a local, shares some of her favourite things to do in 2019's city of Eurovision


I love hosting in my home and helping to make people’s trips to Israel memorable and fun. Here are my top five things you have to do in Tel Aviv:

Themed Tours:  

There are so many themed tours, you’d be mad to miss them. Try:


Tel Avivis are pretty sporty and adventurous. Join them for a spot of:

  • Sunset Yoga by the sea (open air): with the wonderful instructor Orit Thursdays and Saturdays at 18.30 on the decking by the Carlton Hotel:  
  • Surf at Israel’s first surf centre - Topsea
  • Waterski and wakeboard at Lake TLV

Kids' Stuff: 

Whether you're a child at heart, or travelling with them, have some fun at: 

  • Luna Park
  • Flybox- adrenaline-filled air flying experience in Rishon LeZion just south of Tel Aviv:
  • Hayarkon Park - take out a rowing boat on the lake.   

Sea & Sun:

Israelis and visitors love ‘Beten Gav’ literally meaning ‘[lie on your] stomach and back’ and sunbathe at the Beach!  Here are a few beaches worth a visit:

  • Hilton Beach and the Hilton Bay bar
  • Gordon Beach with the  funky LalaLand café bar, open air saltwater pool (Gordon Pool: ) and floodlit beach volleyball (every evening); or
  • For a more hipster beach experience head to Banana beach or Dolphinarium beach at the south end of the strip before you reach Jaffa.


Don't forget to visit this beautiful part of the city. It will enchant you and transport you to a different world. Wander through the old streets, taking in the sights, sounds and smells of these three hotspots:

  • The port
  • The old city and
  • The flea market area - head to Faruk Bashuk for live music and dancing in the street on a Friday afternoon: or check out what’s on (music, art and food) at The Container in Jaffa Port:

Natalie Seeff, a London lawyer is an avid traveller, foodie and lover of Tel Aviv. So much so, she relocated to Tel Aviv a decade ago, and has since set up Natflat Supper Club, hosting groups of visitors for Israeli style dinners in her home.
