Hilton Beach - named for the adjacent hotel - is Tel Aviv's unofficial gay beach. While it's welcoming to both men and women, the crowds here tend to made up of well-muscled young men. Due to a large reef, this is also one of the best beaches in the area for surfing, but the choppy waters are somewhat less suited to swimming. There is a full infrastructure, with food stalls, lifeguards, showers and bathrooms, as well as equipment rental for a variety of water sports. Off-leash dogs are allowed.
