Throughout the years, going to the beach was the most popular summer activity for Israelis. In recent times, however, it seems more and more people have reduced the amount of time they spend at the beach, citing issues such as overcrowding, expensive and inconvenient parking, debris and noise. This might be an accurate description of beaches in Tel Aviv and the surrounding areas, but it certainly does not describe the pristine Ashdod beach. There is ample and free parking just a few minutes’ walk from Ashdod beach. The sand is clean, the area is quiet, lounge chairs and sun umbrellas do not cost a fortune, and there’s even a stand where you can borrow books for free.
