Water sports enthusiasts consider Herzliya one of the best surfing locations in Israel, thanks to minimal barriers to the sea’s waves.

5. Visit Herzliya Park and the City
Herzliya is divided into two parts: the city to the east and the beach area to the west. Herliya Park is a great reason to step away from the beaches and into the residential city atmosphere. The park offers spacious lawns, a barbecue area, an amphitheater and a lake. A biking path and running course invite you to unwind with exercise before heading deeper into the city for falafel, coffee and shopping. Visit Website
