This bustling modern city with excellent hotels, restaurants and beautiful beaches is also a centre of innovative and popular culture and has the added attraction of the adjoining area of Old Jaffa which is part of Tel Aviv.  It is claimed that Jaffa is the oldest port in the world and believed to have been founded by Japhet the son of Noah. It was from Jaffa that Jonah sailed before he encountered the whale. This ancient city has been beautifully reconstructed and visitors can wander the winding alleys along cobblestone paths into the artists’ quarter with interesting galleries, cafes and shops.

 

The ancient port of Jaffa is now a tourist attraction and a modern sailing facility.
