Netiv HaAsara (Hebrew: נְתִיב הָעֲשָׂרָה‬, lit. Path of the Ten) was a moshav and Israeli settlement in the Sinai Peninsula. Located near Yamit, it was founded in 1973 and was named for ten soldiers that were killed in a helicopter accident south of Rafah in 1971.

After the moshav was evacuated as part of the Camp David Accords, 70 families who had previously lived in the settlement founded a new moshav, also called Netiv HaAsara in the north-western Negev desert in Israel.
