Western Herzliya, also called Herzliya-Pitu'ah, is located on the Mediterranean coast with a stretch of popular beachfront hotels, high-tech business area, busy trendy restaurants and an exclusive residential area housing the residence of the United States ambassador and many of Israel's crème de la crème. Herzliya is one of the main tourist locations in Israel.
The Mediterranean sea provides a finishing touch to cottage accommodation. There are many beach entrances to choose from. Basically the Herzliya Pituach beach can be divided in a Southern (crowded) part and Northern (quite) part.
The Southern part of the beach is spotted with hotels and restaurants During the summer you will have to purchase an entry ticket to get into these beaches. The Northern beach of Sidna Ali is free of charge, less crowded and in many ways nicer. From Sidna Ali you can even go up north a long the coast and reach the Apollonian ruins, remains of an ancient fortress along the cost.
Be aware of the intensity of the sun during the summer. During this time of the year, It is highly recommended to go to the beach early in the morning and on the afternoons. Water temperatures vary between seasons. Expect warm water during summer (28 °C). Moderate in spring and autumn (20 °C) and cold in winter (16 °C). Near Hof Hasharon beach you will find a variety of stores to purchase necessities for a beach visit. The fashionable new Marina is also located on the Southern part of the beach and offers a beutifully designed shopping mall with trendy shops, numerous waterfront restaurants, an exclusive yacht club and a variety of nautical services. Lifeguards are present during working hours in most of the beaches.
