Most Israelis would like to wake to the sound of the waves and have a home with a view of the azure Mediterranean. However, not many can. Housing on the seashore is limited. Supply is not plentiful; consequently, prices are high.Bat Yam’s northern municipal boundary is the southern municipal boundary of Tel Aviv. Practically speaking, it is a suburb of Tel Aviv. But it is a suburb where real-estate prices are much lower than in Tel Aviv.
