Netanya lies a few kilometers to the north of the Tel Aviv metropolis on the coast. It has expanded rapidly over the past few years, but remains a much smaller town. Netanya is home to many expatriates so expect to find more English, French and Russian here than Hebrew.
Although the town is smaller than its big neighbor to the south; Netanya's beaches are magnificent. Netanya itself is built on the top of some impressive cliffs so any trip to the beach is down.
