The gay beach, Hilton Beach, is the one outside the Hilton Hotel, and ironically, it is adjacent to the orthodox beach where men and women can only sunbathe on separate days.
You’ll find the neighbors no impediment to lots of buff boys in brief Speedos strolling the sand and stopping off at one another’s blankets to talk and make plans for the evening. You’ll also see a surprising number of paddle ball games, known as matkot, on any sunny day at the beach—it is something of a representative city sport.
One of the higlights of the season are Friday Nights at Tel-Aviv’s Hilton beach – for a crowded underground party. Check the clubbing section for full details.
The Gaash Beach, north of Tel Aviv: A gays beach and a naturist beach. It is located a drive west from the Tzomet Sfarim bookstore in the Shafiim-Gaash Kibbutz shopping center.
