Favorite thing: Netanya has the best beaches we've been to in Israel. The sand is well-kept, the beaches are rarely crowded and the water is great. There are rockier beaches north of the city (Mikhmoret, for instance) where there are no breakwaters and it might be possible to surf a bit. The main Netanya city beach has both stairs and a large elevator for access from the bluffs.
In the mornings the average age of beachgoers is probably around 72, but a younger crowd shows up later in the afternoon and on Shabbat. We really enjoyed the cafes on the beach and on the bluffs above in the city square (Kikar HaAtzma'ut).

City Of Square
Favorite thing: Netanbya has many many pleasent squares. Thier objective is to reduce the number of car accidents but also to make the city looks better because they are very green and has interesting stuff on them.
Fondest memory: There is even a huge sqyuare in the city that is about 4 times bigger then a regular one.
A Funny Building
Favorite thing: This is a very strange building built in one of the cities new neighborhoods. Altough it built in a strage way i like it, it is ultra modern and situated in a great place.
Fondest memory: I like the building because of its style, a very cool blazer style.
Favorite thing: One of the cities central streets, its also one of the streets that connected to Hertzel street (the main street in the city).
There are many shops (some great fashion shops for youth at the beginning), supermrkets, banks, office buildings, the market and of course that there is a lot of traffic and noise all day long.
In the north side of the streets there are many residental buildings.
Fondest memory: A friendly street in my opinion.
Favorite thing: A beautiful street, just now been renovated.
In the first half of the strret there are many shops, clinics, the court, the center of culture and the police headquarters. At the second sides there are many residental buildings.
Fondest memory: This street is full of barber shops, so yes, my barber is also there so its the place where i go to cut my hair. If you are in Netanya and need a hair cut go to "Kuzahi"!!
Favorite thing: There is nothing special in that building. It is my clinic where i go when im sick... there are many more like taht in Netanya so i wanted you to see one. They Health subject in Israel is one of the best in the world i belive.
An Old Corner...
Favorite thing: In this place you can have an interesting view of Netanya. This place is stuated near Tel-Hai pedestrian street.
Fondest memory: Take a look at the white building at the right side, This was the style of the buildings in Netanya at the beginning of the 20 century when the town was established. At the ground floor you can see a cool cafe that called Shtampper, It looks a very stylish place.
The City Hall
Favorite thing: This is the actual City Hall, situated on Tel-Hai street.
I didnt saw the inside of it, but from outside it looks like a block. In this place the municipality workers decide about the future of Netanya.
You can also see the symbol of Netanya at the center of the wall of the first floor.
Fondest memory: The major decide to remove the City Hall to a new building at the cities new industrial park because the municipality belives that this building is too small. Well, i agree with them. Ialso think that this building is too ugly to be a City Hall.
The Big White Elephant
Favorite thing: Dont get too exited if you see this building, maybe its beautiful but it has no use. The law of Netanyas municipality dosnt alloe build at the first row of the buildings after the sea coast residental buildings (just in city Center), so the devalopers said its gonna be hotel but at the end it came out a residental building so now the municipality dont let it to be setteld.
Fondest memory: The funny think is that surely a lot of money was invested in the building because it is built in city Center, with a very good surroundings and now all the money is gone... :(
When To Visit...
Favorite thing: Netanya is a city of beaches and a lot of sun.... that is one pof the resons that you should come to Netanya at summer, when almost everyone is at the beach having fun with his friends, you can swim, play football, eat an ice cream...
In the winter the city is a bit gray, even sad but also then you may have luck and there will be some sunny days.
In the summer the avarage temperture can be 25-30 and in winter 12-18... i guess....
A Big Comlex Of Something...
Favorite thing: Im not sure what s that place... i know it is made of 6 residental buildings and in the other side there are some shops and restaurants that are situated on Nitza boulevard.
Fondest memory: I remember the first time when i ate in one of the restaurants that called Cafe Nitza a great spaghrtti.... since then im going there a lot of times to eat my favorite dish.
Favorite thing: This is the court of Netanya, the building is pretty strange. Instead of you i would do anythink not to get there...
Favorite thing: Its a statue in the Liberty square, i have no idea what its symbolize but i saw statues very similiar to this in other places too...
