Even the beaches in Israel are steeped in history- in 1948, a Jewish boat by the name of Altelena was heading towards Israel carrying weapons that had been acquired by Jewish national militia from the time of the British Mandate. The military commanders were concerned that the weapons would be used to undermine the newly formed government and the Israeli army therefore fired at the boat injuring twenty people. Two hundred militia members were arrested and the rest were incorporated into the Israeli army. Up until today controversy surrounds this event.
Despite, or perhaps as a result of this historical event Bugrashov Beach is one of the most popular Tel Avivian beaches, located bang in the middle of the line of beaches and popular with both tourists and locals. The beach is open all year round and even during most of the winter months lifeguard and first aid services are offered. The street that the beach is located on, Bugrashov, is a tourist-friendly, stylish street with excellent cafés and restaurants that one can pay a visit to either before or after a trip to the beach. There is one main eatery- the Bugrashov Beach Bar- on the beach.

Hello reader. My name is Charlotte Noris and I am sure that you will definitely enjoy my blog. Do you know why? All because on the pages you will see bright and colorful photos, as well as useful information. My husband and I are freelancers, so we can travel at any time of the year.
For myself, I most often plan tours in advance, but it also happens that the trip turns out to be spontaneous when I see an interesting place and a nice price. At the age of 35, I have visited more than 30 countries and do not plan to stop there. I want to visit all continents and the most secret corners of our planet.
