Herzliya's Dromi Beach ('The Southern beach' in Hebrew) is the latest hot spot when it comes to surfing. The beach, which use to host motor sports, was recently announced as a beach dedicated only to surfing. The best time to surf there is during the winter, spring, and fall, and with night lighting installed on the beach, even those who work during the day can still enjoy a good surfing session.
Known by local surfers as the 'mini-California, surfer’s paradise,' Hilton is one of the few beaches in the Tel Aviv area characterized by rocky grounds, which gives the waves a tubular shape. Another advantage to this beach is that the waves often break in both directions (right and left) because of two jetties protecting them, allowing for some of the best reef breaks in Israel. The reef can hold beautiful swells that start off weak, but do not fret - they strengthen closer to shore.
