Tel Aviv is famous for being a super open, gay-friendly liberal city. Serving as the unofficial Middle East gay capital, you can be whoever you want to be in Tel Aviv! The gay parade, which takes place in June every year, is also a highly anticipated event for all Tel Avivians, where together they celebrate equality and love.

The beaches

One thing is for sure: You will never find a beach like the one in Tel Aviv. The shores are perfect for everything, from simply tanning, to playing the famous Israeli beach game matkot (very similar to beach tennis). The beach represents the Tel Avivian society very well: Alive and laid back at the same time!

The Nightlife

Tel Aviv’s nightlife is well-known all over the world, especially when the city goes crazy for gay pride week! Whether you like commercial music or deep house, there is a bar, a club or a house party that will be just right for you, where you can dance yourself silly until the sun comes up. A go-to club for those who love afterparties is The Breakfast Club, which only starts at 3am.
