Took this video from the Tallest pool in Tel-Aviv, The Isrotel Tower!!
It has an amazing view of the city 360 degrees and people on the boardwalk are small as ants…What a great day!

The Gordon Pool Next to the Tel-Aviv Marina

It seems like everywhere you look lately there is something brand new and fun in the city, Until about a year ago if you wanted to hang out in a marina you needed to go to Herzelia.

But now after the opening of the Landver Cafe next to the Gordon pool, there is a great place to sit in and enjoy a cup of coffee and a Marina view.

The Gordon Pool is located right under Atarim Square and has recently gone under a serious renovation that made it look fantastic.
Right next to the pool is the new Landver cafe that opened this summer and has a view to the boats in the Marina, I don’t know why, but I usually go to check out this spot early on a Friday when I’m really hung over. (go figure…)

What you see in the video is me riding my bike from Gordon beach north and taking a left at the pool, A thing you should do as well 🙂

A windy day at the Nostalgic Mezizim Beach, Tel-Aviv

When I get to Mezizim beach, the first thing I think about is the Shower scene from the classic cult movie “Mezizim” The showers are still located at the same place, but the beach is changed totally, still, you get the feeling of Classic Tel-Aviv.

Mezizim beach for me is a place to go to during the week, it is packed and very noisy during the weekend but some people like it – not my style.

The beach is the most northern beach in the city and the last one before the “Namal”. Its full of plastic chairs and has a really big beach restaurant that holds live shows and parties from time to time in the summer.

The Reason I DO find myself going to Mezizim is the amazing secret spot to Eat Jachnun located right behind the beach and called  Miriam’s Jachnun. After I eat the Morning Jachnun, walking to another beach just seems impossible 🙂

[toggle title_open=”what is a Jachnun?” title_closed=”what is a Jachnun?” hide=”yes” border=”no” style=”default”]Jachnun is a classic Yemenite dish prepared from rolled dough which is baked on very low heat for about 10 hours or so. The dough is rolled out thinly, After the long time in the oven It turns a dark amber color and has a slightly sweet taste.[/toggle]

Multi millionaires, nudists and a great sunset, Arsuf Beach, Shefayim

When Tel-Aviv people talk about Arsuf Beach in Shefayim, they talk about two things, The unbelievable villas that are just meters from the beach and the fact when going to the northern part of the beach you’ll walk into nude people, but the beach is more than that.

Arsuf Beach, Shefaim

Usuriously, I didn’t even hear about Arsuf before the beach was turning into a real-estate venture for multi-milioners, still, they didn’t destroy it totally and the place has a great vibe and worth checking out.

Most people of the city usually hit this beach during Fridays and Saturdays so you won’t be alone on the beach, but it will be less crowded than city.
During the weekdays, the beach is so empty you’ll feel as if you can walk around naked, and some people actually do that right on that beach 🙂

Arsuf is a bit of a struggle to get to, especially if you are bringing lots of gear with you, the beach has a steep hill to go walk down and the parking is not exactly Malibo, still, this is what makes it fun as well.

How to get to Arsuf and Shefayim?

Drive north, 5 minutes after you pass Herzelia,stick to the right until you see the exit for Shefayim, Take a left at the Square and after the tunnel another left at the Square, drive until you see the turn to Arsuf, and from there Its best to ask – that’s how we Israelis do it 🙂
