Why Netanya Is the Coolest

Why Netanya Is the Coolest

Photo Credit: Flash90

You can see it right there, in this picture of the Netanya coastline: Netanya is the only large town in Israel that preserved its original cliffs, instead of cutting them down to the sea level. As a result, Netanya’s homes are built at 40-50 feet above the sea level, endowing the city with a lovely, cooling breeze most days of the summer.

I always feel the difference driving into Netanya from Jerusalem. As soon as I get into the city limits, I open the car windows and turn off the air-conditioning, to let the wind in.

It also means you have to take an elevator to get down to the beach, which is another treat…
