Ganei Tal (Hebrew: גַּנֵּי טַל, lit. 'Gardens of Dew') was an Israeli settlement in the south of the Gaza Strip, located in the Gush Katif settlement bloc. It was under the jurisdiction of Hof Aza Regional Council.
The residents of Ganei Tal were forcibly evicted from their homes on 17 August 2005 as part of the unilateral disengagement plan, decided on by the Israeli government in 2004. Their houses were destroyed once the evictions were complete. A new village called Ganei Tal was later established in central Israel by the former settlers.
In 2007, Hamas announced plans to build a "media city" on the site.
