The ultimate travel magazine, National Geographic, has published a new Top 10 list and Tel Aviv is on it. The magazine with the famous yellow rectangular border recently published a list of “10 Top Oceanfront Cities” and included an eclectic choice of “glittering seascapes [that] provide both the backdrop and the beat of these waterfront urban meccas.”

In no particular order, the world’s best oceanfront locations – according to the magazine – are Tel Aviv, Perth, Brisbane, Tallinn, San Diego, St. John’s, Durban, Vladivostok, Marseille, and Portland.

“There’s plenty of room for beach bathing in this modern Israeli city on the Mediterranean. The historic port of Jaffa has found new life in recent years with a vibrant gallery, café, and restaurant scene,” the magazine writes about Tel Aviv.
