Herzliya Pituach is an affluent suburb west of Herzliya, located on the Mediterranean Sea coast. Herzliya Pituah is known for its beachfront hotels, restaurants, high-tech industry and upscale residences.
The Herzliya marina, built in the 1980s at the initiative of mayor Eli Landau, covers an area of 500 dunams (0.5 km²). The marina complex includes the Arena shopping mall and a variety of restaurants overlooking the water. The construction of the marina sparked controversy due to allegations that it damaged the beach.
