Explore the beautiful city of Netanya
If you dream of beautiful, white sandy beaches, sparkling clear blue sea water and great hotel accommodation for your holiday, then Netanya may well be the destination of your choice. One of the most well-known tourist and resort destinations in Israel, Netanya is a great place to spend a warm, Israeli vacation.
Situated in the central districts of Israel, Netanya was founded on empty land as late as 1928. It was named for the Jewish-American Philanthropist Nathan Strauss and, unlike most other Israeli cities, it has very little of historical interest on offer. Not long after the Arab-Israeli War of 1948, three surrounding Palestinian villages which had been emptied during the war became part of the city. These where Umm Khalid, Bayyarat Hannun and Tabsur.
Today you will find that the town of Netanya is refreshingly clean and modern. Many of the residents of this city enjoy a relatively high standard of living and, with its position on the Mediterranean, Netanya enjoys a large number of international visitors each year. Tourists can enjoy the simplicity of an elevator ride from the nearby hotels down to the sands of the beach, as well as horseback rides, paragliding, flying and golfing opportunities. At the many fine malls you will find fun for the kids in the form of go-karting and a variety of other activities. Adults enjoy the shopping, cool, conditioned air and fine dining. There are a number of galleries and other cultural attractions worth visiting and, if you are visiting at the right time of the year, Netanya is host to number of festivals and celebrations which are held on an annual basis.
