The Gay-Friendly Guide to Tel Aviv

Freedom to Love and Live
Israel is known for being the most LGBT-friendly country in the Middle East. With Tel Aviv being the heart and soul behind this culture, it is no surprise Tel Aviv has become the best gay-friendly travel destination in this region.

Hilton Beach
Unofficially known as the go-to beach for the LGBT community, the Hilton Beach is a nice, clean, sandy strip just below Hilton Hotel in the north of Tel Aviv. Besides being the most liberal of Tel Aviv’s beaches with its tanned bodies in tight bathing suits, Hilton Beach is also the most wheelchair-accessible beach in Israel thanks to the special chairs available for the comfort and convenience of the disabled.

Famous Pride Parade

For the best gay-oriented holiday, it’s recommended to plan the trip during the annual Tel Aviv Gay Pride Parade which usually happens in June. The parade will kickstart at 10am in Me’ir Park (Gan Me’r) with a colourful celebration of creative floats, music, food and will end with a big bang; the famous beach party at Tel Aviv Beach Promenade. Just remember the dress code — a pair of the sexiest bathing suit and generous layers of great energy!
