About Banana Beach
This beach takes its name from the popular restaurant that is the main hub of activity alongside just chilling out in the sun. Unlike some of the other beaches, you won’t find a lot of sports facilities, but there are plenty of chairs to rent, and it’s quite clean.
It is also known as Drum Beach for the weekly drum session that takes place every Friday and sometimes Dolphinarium Beach for the abandoned Dolphinarium complex that was once home to a famous nightclub of the same name that was the site of a suicide bombing in 2001.
Banana Beach is on the southern end of the Herbert Samuel Promenade, between where Zerubavel and Ezra Hasofer Streets meet the promenade.
Busses 16, 66 and 166 all stop on Ha-Yarkon Street at Ezra Hasofer Street, and Sherut line 16 also runs along this route. It’s a 2 minute walk from Ha-Yarkon and Ezra Hasofer.
There is a Tel-O-Fun bike rental station at the corner of Zerubavel Street and the Herbert Samuel Promenade.
You can go to the beach whenever you want, but there are only lifeguards on duty during certain hours, which vary by season.
Winter (October-April): No lifeguard on duty
Summer (May-October): Sun-Sat from 7:45 am to sundown
