Blue Bay Beach
Blue Bay is the northernmost beach of the Netanya’s strip. It neighbors the Ein Hatchelet neighborhood and the Blue Bay Hotel. The beach is in the jurisdiction of the Emek Hefer Regional Council.
The lifeguard stations here used to be operated through a cooperation of the Emek Hefer Regional Council and Netanya Municipality until a few years ago. Unfortunately, this beach is currently closed, but there are negotiations in cooperation with the Regional Council to have it reopened.
