Although some of us may be used to hearing about Netanya under unflattering circumstances, this coastal city is actually an interesting destination for a day trip. A popular destination for foreign tourists, it is, for some reason, less so among Israelis. Unbeknownst, perhaps, to many is that Netanya offers a plethora of activities for families and couples looking to escape from the daily grind and enjoy beautiful beaches and nature reserves, fun markets and a variety of cultural activities. In addition, a number of high-quality hotels have recently sprung up in the city.

The best place to start any trip to Netanya is, of course, at the beach – or, to be more specific, the promenade. In addition to relaxing on the beach, there are a number of other places of interest in Netanya that are also worth visiting. One of them is the monument at Yad Labanim, which commemorates the victory of the Red Army over Nazi Germany in the Second World War.
