Tired of the schlep from Jerusalem to Tel Aviv just to go to the beach? Now, you no longer need to make the long trek – Jerusalem has brought the beach closer to home.

Jerusalem has built its own beach within the refurbished First Train Station, Times of Israel reports. It includes  “a 2,000-square-meter (21,500 square feet) space with its own surfing simulator, beach volleyball court and open beach showers.”

However, if you’re still into experiencing the real deal, for NIS 50, you can board the BeachBus which will take you straight to Tel Aviv’s Banana Beach.

Either way, getting to the beach from Jerusalem just got a lot easier!

Before the Rolling Stones took to the stage in Tel Aviv on June 4th, the legendary band toured through Israel.

According to Times of Israel, “Guitarist Ronnie Wood, drummer Charlie Watts and touring keyboard player Chuck Leavell were all at hand to witness Judaism’s most sacred spot; Leavell was even photographed wearing a kipa and placing a note at the Kotel — as is customary.”

“Mick Jagger evidently took a jaunt along Israel’s Mediterranean coast, paying a visit to the Roman ruins at Caesarea. Jagger posted a photo standing among the ruins with the Caesarea power plant in the background.”

I Googled Israel has put together a list of the top ten things that make the 2014 beach season in Tel Aviv a “chess playing, lolly-licking” delight!

Here are our favourite from the bunch:

  • The popular Beach Library concept, which was launched last year, is back even bigger and better. This year there are FOUR libraries to choose from, located at Jerusalem Beach, Gordon Beach, Metzitzim Beach, and Cliff Beach.
  • All Tel Aviv beaches now have fitness equipment, beach showers, taps for cleaning your feet and legs, and first-aid facilities. There are even EIGHT beaches with beach volleyball courts set up to enjoy.
  • This year there will be FOUR beaches open to dogs, as long as they are supervised. Head to Tel Baruch (South), just north of Hilton Beach, south of Charles Clore Beach, and south of Givat Aliya Beach if you need your four legged friend to join you for a romp in the sand

Tel Aviv has been listed as one of ten top gay honeymoon hotspots worldwide by CNN!

The city’s annual gay pride, which is sponsored by the government, draws gay men and women from all over the world.

In 2012, travel guide Gaycities.com named Tel Aviv the gayest city on the planet — at least 100,000 gay men are expected to visit this year.

Tel Aviv calls itself a 24-hour city because you can spend all night clubbing then snooze all day on one of its beaches.

If you’ve time to spare, you can squeeze ancient and Biblical sites such as the Dead Sea, Masada and Jerusalem into one- or two-day trips.
