The Coastal Plain in Israel stretches from the Carmel Range in the north, to Gaza Strip and Egypt in the south. At its center is the sprawling Tel Aviv metropolitan area.


From north to south, the Coastal Plain can be roughly divided into three groups of cities:

The Sharon[edit]

Tel Aviv area[edit]

Tel-Aviv's area is also called "Gush Dan", after the biblical Tribe of Dan. This map shows cities in the Gush Dan area, and beyond

Southern Coastal Plain[edit]

Other destinations[edit]


The Sharon is the part of the coastal plain located north of Tel Aviv. It is famous for its orange groves, some of which are now being replaced by new housing developments.

The Southern Coastal Plain, as its name indicates, has less of an identity. It is mostly known for its cities - Ashdod and Ashkelon.

Get in[edit]

Get around[edit]


Almost all of the Sharon has publicly accessible beaches. But as usual, don't swim without a lifeguard. The swimming season is usually between June and September, and lifeguards are only available during this season.
