When we think of summer in the Mediterranean, idyllic beaches on the coast of France, Spain and Italy come to mind. From May to September, the European coast region receives tourists from all over the world eager to experience the routine that combines beach with good food and parties that go until the morning.

In recent years, Tel Aviv, the city that sits in Asia rather than Europe and which is also bordered by the Mediterranean Sea, has become a special destination for those seeking something more than quiet days at the beach. The city is known as the most liberal of the Middle East and it does not resemble Jerusalem, where religion is more dominant. In Tel Aviv, the sport and summer lifestyle dominates the wide promenades and boulevards with an international population where practically everyone speaks English. Tel Aviv has an average of 318 sunny days a year and 1 in 3 inhabitants is between 18 and 35 years of age. Now that’s a place to visit!
