Netanya (also mistakenly "Natanya", נְתַנְיָה) is a city in Israel. Many tourists come to visit its beach.

Get in[edit]

  • 1 Netanya's train station. Connecting Netanya to Haifa and to Tel Aviv, with a car rental station nearby. It is not really in walking distance from the city center - there are buses and taxis though. (For the Poleg area in southern Netanya, the "Beit Yehoshua" train station will be more convenient than the Netanya station.)
  • 2 Central Bus Station. Located downtown a 10-minute walk from the beach, is served by buses to Tel Aviv, Haifa, Jerusalem, and other cities.

Get around[edit]

The tourist-friendly area downtown is small and easily walkable. Bicycles and walking are common transportation along the beach. If you need to visit another neighborhood, a bus or taxi is the best bet.


As a tourist destination and large city, Netanya features a number of museums and galleries.

  • The Well House- a museum telling the early history of Netanya located in a farm established in 1928, and as such one of the earliest buildings in Netanya.
  • The Tribes of Israel Pearl museum of Yemenite Jewish Heritage
  • The Shlomo Dror Art Institute
  • The Diamimon diamond museum

The city is located on a cliff overlooking the beach. There are paths down to the beach. You can also take an elevator to the "Sironit" beach - the ride is free and you get a fascinating view of the sea. The boardwalks near the sea are wonderful and have great views of the sea shore.
