About Hilton

In the middle of Tel Aviv, just in front of the Hilton Hotel, Hilton Beach is one of Tel Aviv’s best spots, located right between the Marina of Tel Aviv and a big, T-shaped jetty. With a reef/sand mix bottom, Hilton can provide small mushy peaks on waist-high days, and some nice A-frames on bigger, more powerful days. The spot is quite sheltered, so it can handle any winds up to 20 kts other than straight W.
