Bicycles are a great means of transportation in a small city like Tel Aviv. The Norman offers single gear bicycles for your use and our Concierge Team can offer information to help you decide your destination and route, either along the biking promenades dotted around the city, or along the Sea Promenade. There is also a brilliant public bike-hire scheme in Tel Aviv.

When the waves are high, like in September, surfers flock by the thousands to the beaches, and even though Tel Aviv may not be Maui, the country has produced some fine surfers, including Israel’s first Olympic gold medalist in windsurfing, Gal Friedman.  There are a number of surf schools located along the shore line, our concierge can help you navigate the options.
