Netanya is a popular tourist destination in Israel. From what started out as a small settlement, Today, Netanya is a beautiful modern coastal city that has plenty of things to offer. Netanya is known for its beaches and for its hikes.  Check out the Alexander Stream Hof Bet Yanai National Park for hiking/biking and the Poleg beach for relaxing and water sports.  Netanya has a relaxing vibe so when you are tired out from all of the Maccabiah activities; hit the beach or a park to regain your energy! The 'Atzmaut Square' is another popular site, where tourists and locals flock to watch performances or to just walk around. At the square you will find restaurants, bars, art, music and kiosks all for your entertainment.

Netanya has always been an integral important part of the Maccabiah and has dedicated a lot of its efforts for professional sport development. This Maccabiah we took the cooperation with Netanya to the next level and the city is going to be the home for Masters' Maccabiah. 

With an interactive designated beach we are going to create the Maccabiah Beach HUB which will not just host the water sport competitions but also will be a place to hang out by the beach and will provide fun activities for all ages.
