Each of Tel Aviv’ beaches has a different character, popular with different people looking each for a different beach experience. For your sand-filled pleasure, you will definitely choose to spend your time feeling like a local and to sweat through an intense matkot session. Matkot ("rackets") is a popular Paddle Ball game in Israel, a bit similar to beach tennis. This easy and pleasant game is often referred to by the Israelis as their national beach sport.
