National Park Nature / Park
Surrounding the remains of a 13th-century Crusader fortress, Apollonia National Park offers hiking and picnic opportunities, as well as panoramic views of an ancient Roman villa and the Mediterranean coast. The clifftop ruins, encircled by a wide dry moat, include a collection of genuine ballistae projectiles. The first settlers on the site were Phoenicians in the 6th century BCE, but the earliest remains date back to the Roman period. Take one of the two hiking routes to reach the top: the one for experienced hikers follows the ridge of the cliff, while the other is wheelchair- and stroller-accessible.

Where to stay in Herzliya

If you're searching for luxury on your Herzliya holiday, you're in luck. Because many visit Herzliya as a day trip out of neighboring Tel Aviv, the accommodation options in the city are few in number, but high in quality. Lining the Mediterranean coastline, several decadent four- and five-star hotels and beachside resorts provide a quiet retreat and pampering away from the bustle of the surrounding urban landscape. Head a few blocks away for more straightforward business hotels, which offer high-quality service with good transport links.
