Hofit (Hebrew: חוֹפִית, lit. Coastal) is a communal settlement in central Israel. Located on the coast of the Mediterranean Sea near Netanya, it falls under the jurisdiction of Hefer Valley Regional Council. In 2006 it had a population of 780.

The village was established in the early 1950s for workers who wanted an agricultural lifestyle. The first residents moved in 1952, and the village was officially recognised in 1955. Its name is taken from its proximity to the sea.
