Not sure if this is called drummers beach, or is just the made up name. It is actually just on the side of the old buildings that are at the first breakwater (coming from Jaffa). There is no real beach were they play, just the rocks of the breakwater and it smells like Israel's toilet. They have a great thing... More

Cons - In the past year this place has become full of drug addicts, drunks, and sexual harassment. Plus, the municipality closed the access to the beach,... More

A large group of men gather with their myriad different drums at the very end of the Tel Aviv stretch of beach to bang out a rythm that attracts a gathering crowd as the sun sinks lower in the sky until finally it...

It attracts a wonderfully diverse group of people, across all ages, enjoying the sunset over the Mediterranean. The Dolphinarium is located on Retsif Herbert Samuel Street (near intersection of Daniel Street). Access is from the north side, towards... More

Close to Manta ray restarunt and to the the awesome board walk that will take you all the... More
