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 đŸ™‚

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]

Andromeda Hill in Old Jaffa – Fantastic View point

Since this is the first post of this site, I decided to start with a more must see locations. And Andromeda hill top in old Jaffa is just that kind of place. Located in the northern edge of the old city, this hill top view is a great place to ride your bike to and chill out on a sunny day! With a killer view to the TLV boardwalk and skyline, it’s a fantastic place for a visit!

Perfect place for a TLV Summer day..

On this great looking summer day, I rode my bike to this hill and stayed for a while, While looking at happy tourists kissing and getting all romantic I was amazed how many tourists spots there are around old Jaffa.

This view point is minutes away from beautiful churches and musk’s. It is also located just near the Old Jaffa City that is an amazing place to spend a day. I suggest sitting in the cafes and shopping around for a few gifts.

However, also, take the time and just “chill” in front of this view, it truly is a magical spot, especially during weekdays when its quiet..
