The Coastal Plain in Israel stretches from the Carmel Range in the north, to Gaza 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]

Southern Coastal Plain[edit]

  • Rishon LeZion
  • Ramla - the only town in Israel founded by the medieval Arab empires. It includes the White Mosque
  • Rehovot - known for Weizmann Institute of Science and Faculty of Agriculture which are in its territory.
  • Ashdod
  • Ashkelon

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.

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.
