Netanya is located close to the seashores of the Mediteranean Sea, between "Poleg" stream and Wingate Institute in the south and the "Avichail" stream in the north. Netanya's proximity to the sea (14 kilometers of the most beautiful shores in the world) and its pleasant climate have made the city a most desirable tourist attraction and resort area.
Netanya has become a centre for tourists as well as for industrial development. Three features have contributed to the development of Netanya as a city of tourism and leisure: beautifully maintained sea shores offering a variety of high standard services, a wide selection of hotels, restaurants and places of entertainment appealing to the national as well as the international tourist, and the central geographic location allowing easy access to tourist sites all over the country. Nearby services provide a wide variety of activities from nature walks for the whole family to sports such as paragliding, miniature plane flying, jeep tours, horseback riding and sail boating.
