The area directly across the street from the Dan Gardens hotel including HaTayassim Street, HaShayetet Street and Pridan Street consists of a variety of high-rise apartment buildings ranging in age from the 1980s to brand new construction. These units are within easy walking distance to historic Afridar including the Ashkenazi shul, making this area popular with religiously-observant Anglos.
HaTayassim is an easy five-minute walk to Delilah Beach, one of Ashkelon's two "official" beaches featuring life guards, wave-breakers, souvenier shops, pubs and snack bars. Between Delilah Beach and HaTayassim are a cluster of brand-new high-rise residential buildings. Prices in these new units start at around NIS 1.5 million for a four-room flat.
In contrast, a four-room unit in the Tayassim-Shayetet area will range in price from just over a million shekels in the older buildings to NIS 1.4 million for new construction. In essence you are sacrificing the sea view, which is obscured by the Dan Gardens and surrounding high-rises, while enjoying proximity to the beach and the conveniences of central Afridar. Delilah Beach features a new beachside park with free exercise equipment. In addition, there is currently under construction at the nearby marina a new high-end commercial project which will feature retail space and a movie cinema.
HaTayassim is served by bus line number eighteen which serves the central bus station and train station and bus lines number three and six serving the marina, Afridar, Barnea and the city market. These buses arrive at twenty to fifty minute intervals.
