Hof Hatzuk – While much of the area is free, this beach requires an entrance fee. As such, the facilities are top notch with sports facilities and a promenade, but a drive is necessary to get there from the center of the city.
The Separated Beach – Designated for the very religious, the beach has days that are specifically for men or women respectively. On Saturdays, however, the beach is open to the public, as the religious are engaged in services and other aspects of worship.
Gordon Beach – Be prepared to be crowded by tourists, but the beach is nice and clean. There are beach bars and cafés to take a break from the sun without leaving the view of the water.
