Tel Aviv is well known for its beautiful fun sandy beaches, but a local secret are the few parks that are located above the beach line. The Independence Park, near the Hilton Hotel, is one of the most magical parks to spend a day at.
The park offers vast public spaces where locals throw big birthday parties, yoga sessions, and romantic picnics. Friends come together with their dogs on a Saturday and watch the sunset.
People also utilize the space to do some sports so you can find an “outdoor gym”, and many personal trainers doing TRX and Functional workouts.
What is nice about this spot is that it is very close to the port of Tel Aviv and of course it’s above the beach line so you can plan a nice day out by doing a picnic in one of the shady corners of the park, go to the beach for some sunbathing and finish with a cold beer in one of the many restaurants at the port.
If you are looking for a relaxing quiet day, this is the spot for you!
