Netanya (also נְתַנְיָה, and mistakenly "Natanya") 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.
