Netanya: horseback riding & paragliding
Netanya has the best of everything for a summer vacation. The water in the Mediterranean Sea is warm and inviting with lifeguards on duty. There are several stairways and a few roads to get to the beach but the most interesting way to go is the elevator. Surfers, as well as para surfers in the sea and para sailers in the air, launch their parachutes near the Hotel Blue Bay. Everything is within walking distance so no need for a car in Netanya. The beaches are lovely and can be reached by several flights of steps along the coast, the elevator or a drive down the access road. Horses are available for a gallop along the shore.
