Herzliya Things to Do

  • the town

    Most tourists prefer Herzliya Pituah district (2,5km NW of the railway station) because it has the beach, expensive houses, the marina and many restaurants. After two weeks of touring around famous Israeli towns we preferred to walk around the main town of Herzliya (east of the railway station) and see a normal residential area, after all we just...

  • the beach

    Although only 8km west of Raanana the bus took about 45 minutes to reach Herzliya beach as it had to stop in about 30000 different bus stops :) Unfortunately it was impossible to swim that day, when we got off the bus it started to rain so lying on the beach with the dark sky above us didn’t seem very appealing, we took some pictures and returned...

Now in the summer of 2005 we met with her in Herziliya to sadly say goodbye, she...

  • The Seasonal Swamp

    In the low-lying valley, east of the kurkar (calcareous sandstone) ridge which blocks the flow of rainwater towards the sea, there was a swamp which caused grave problems for the settlers of Herzeliya in the 1920s. Even the Romans in ancient times confronted the same problem, and dug a tunnel in the kurkar ridge to drain the swamp.Nowadays the...

  • Apollonia NP --- Admire the colors

    When you visit the National Park you most probably have noticed chimneys and high buildings. But here in the park you can enjoy the nature inside and outside the parks boundaries. The high coast gives excellent views into the water and along the coast. I really enjoyed the colors, especially the water was very blue. So take your time here to admire...

  • Apollonia NP --- Crusaders Fortress

    Center piece of the national park is for sure the Crusader Fortress. Here quite some structures are left, but the bridge that you will use is not the one that was used in the past. Approaching the visitor bridge you can see parts of the old bridge. In the fortress you can still find ballista stones and traces of the fire which the mameluke set here...

  • Apollonia NP --- Ottoman Lime Kiln

    During the ottoman periode this lime kiln was used to burn lime limestone for the construction of buildings. The fire was burning in the structure that you can see today, while the lime stone was placed ontop of the roof. After four to six days the stones were ready.

  • Apollonia NP --- Water Reservoirs

    When walking on the Sea Path you will pass several reservoirs that were used to collect rain water. Access to water was important especially if you keep in mind the various sieges that were held here. Have a look at the round shaped water pool and the cisterns.

Herzliya Restaurants

  • Gorilla

    We visited Herzliya for the beach but upon our arrival there were light showers so we decided to get back into town have a coffee there. We stooped at GORILLA a typical café that is located on Sokolow, one of the main streets in the center. They have plenty of tables outside and seemed a good spot for people watching, although there was plenty of...

    "Etzel Avi" means "Chez Avi" in Hebrew. This is a simple beach restaurant which is very strategically located, on the lower promenade of the Herzliya Pituach beach.

  • Nice place to sit in the marina

    In Israel even an evening in November is a good time to sit outdoors in the Hertzeliya marina, eat and have a drink, and the breeze is pleasant and not too cold.We spent a very nice evening in the Kakao Espresso Bar; this is one of several branches of this trendy network of cafes in Israel.If you want to eat they have the typical menu in Israeli...

  • Good dining in the marina

    The Herzilya marina is not exactly my favorite place: a concrete monster where golden sand used to be. However. once it was built, it does provide opportunities for good dining.We went to Medzzo for dinner to celebrate Ofrah's birthday. There were six of us, and the uniform opinion was very good. There is a large selection in the menu; I enjoyed my...

  • how to move around

    Moving around Herlziya is a bit tricky although it’s mid size town with about 40,000 inhabitants. The problem is that the main railway line splits Herlziya in two parts, The beach is 2,5km to the west, the upscale Herzliya Pituach 3km NW and the town of Herzliya is 2,5km east of the train station! So if you arrive by train you need a taxi or wait...

  • Use Car

    The best way to my opinion to get here is by car.The location of the city is on the main route from Haifa-Tel Aviv so you can stop here for a while and continue your way.To go to the Marina area you should get down on the boat junction (Ha'sira) and this is Herzliya Pituach.

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Once a year, on a Saturday morning around November, ther Herzeliya Walk takes place. Many hundreds of Herzeliyans (and a few others) take the walk, young and old, families, couples and singles, with all kinds of activities scattered along the route: live music, children's games and fun, sports activities etc.
    The city museum of Beit Rishonim is open to the public with free guided tours.
    You can choose between an 8 km route and a 5 km one.
    There is a carnaval atmosphere at the end of the route. Go for it!

    Iris Levi Massage, Israel

    by Martin_S. Written Dec 5, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Meet Iris Levi, she does Swedish Massage, Holisitic Reflexogy. We had the pleasure to meet her by surprise when the coffee bar/pub we were enjoying on the beach at Herziliya hired Iris to circulate among the clients and give each a 5 minute Swedish Massage. It was very nice and a surprising change. If you are in the Tel-Aviv/Herziliya area and enjoy massage you should consider contacting her.

Herzliya Sports & Outdoors

  • Bike and Jog in the Herzliya Park

    The Herzliya Park offers a good opportunity to bike, jog or walk. There are separate lanes and paths for joggers and bikers, so that they don't run into families with children, strollers, pets etc.The environment is varied, part of the paths are in nature, besides the seasonal pond which (in winter) is rich with birds and amphibians, and part of...

  • Herzilya Sunset

    As always it is worth waiting for a good sunset. It seems that the best are in the changing season times, in April or November. Although a good storm in January may bring out some fantastic views also.

  • Herzilya seaside

    In Herzilya you can find some great beaches for swimming, sailing or even cliffs to paraglide off of. You can see the seabreaks they have constructed to give some shelter from the waves coming in off the greater Mediterranian sea and also some shelters to keep you out of the sun in the hotter hours of the day.
