Hilton Beach, Tel Aviv
Every gay tourist in Tel Aviv must visit this beach at least once. Israel’s unofficial gay beach offers sunbathing, Mediterranean feeling, muscular, tanned men in tight speedos and cruising galore. It is the hotspot of Tel Aviv’s LGBT community.
Rainbow flags and parasols clearly mark the beach section directly below the Hilton Hotel, right off Independence Park.
A great place to socialise – nobody stays here alone for a long time.
Ga’ash Beach is an untouched and hidden natural beach. This paradise for nudists also attracts many gay visitors.
You can reach the beach after a 20 minutes’ drive from Tel Aviv, it is located near Herzliya. The nudist section can be found on the southern part of the beach.
You should bring food and drink with you, as you cannot buy them there.
The journey and the way to the beach are a bit tricky, but they are worth the effort.
A ridiculous amount of coffee was consumed in the process of building this project. Add some fuel if you'd like to keep us going!
