In a recently-published article on the Lonely Planet travel guide website entitled “Ten Cities with Brilliant Beaches”, Tel Aviv is ranked seventh, after coastal cities such as Barcelona, Capetown and Rio de Janeiro.

 

In the citation, the popular Lonely Planet guide notes that Tel Aviv is a “modern sin city…the total flipside of Jerusalem”. The guide points out that the locals flock “en masse” to the beaches when the weather is warm, for sunbathing, kitesurfing and “knocking back and forth little rubber balls during friendly matches of matkot.”

 

“The beaches are safe and clean, and there are changing rooms and freshwater showers scattered along its length. The main beaches are packed with people most days, especially on Saturdays, when the crowds descend to pick a prime spot.”

 

Tel Aviv continues to receive citations and accolades from travel sites and guides, including, most recently, the Gaycities.com website whose members ranked Tel Aviv as one of the top ten “Ultimate Dream Cities” in the world, coming in third to Paris and Venice.

 

In October 2012, Lonely Planet placed the Negev Desert in the no. 2 slot in its 2013 ranking of the top regions in the world. The Negev Desert came in second to Corsica, France.​
