winter time at Tel Aviv port exposing the beauty of the port's old hammer crane built at 1938
The port was founded in 1936 as a substitute to the old port of Jaffa, and for the next three decades it continued to serve as one of the major commercial port facilities of Israel.
Ships are no more expected here as the port is inactive and serves only as a recreational zone for the city citizens.
As of today the port of Tel Aviv is a compelling city attraction mixing retail, culinary adventures, a leisure and commercial destination for all seasons. The port area hosts an antique market, a farmer market, a large concentration of entertainment centers, nightclubs, cafes, restaurants, along with shops offering everything from fashion to fine design.
Visitors enjoy walking along the boardwalk that follows the shoreline, protected by a breakwater wall. A large wooden deck covers and acts as a huge promenade running along the seafront. Shaped like waves in the sea, this unique promenade is crowded the throughout the year.
