Weather:

Israel is located in a subtropical zone, the climate of which is characterized by the absence of pronounced spring and autumn. There are two seasons in the country – hot summers and cool rainy winters. The greatest amount of precipitation falls in the northern and western regions of Israel. As a rule, rains begin in the last days of October, intensify in December, and stop in March. In Jerusalem, Safed, and Hebron, snow sometimes falls, which melts within a few days, but the slopes of Mount Hermon from December to April have excellent snow cover, sufficient even for skiing.

The weather in different regions of the country has striking differences: mountainous regions are characterized by cold winters and sultry summers; mild winters on the coast and very high humidity in summer; in the Jordan Valley, summers are dry and hot, winters are cool. While Tel Aviv is hot and humid, Jerusalem, just an hour’s drive from Tel Aviv, has a dry and cool mountain air. Given the difference in humidity, summer heat in different parts of Israel is tolerated differently, the most favorable climate is in Jerusalem.

Eilat is warm throughout the year, hot in summer, average summer temperature is + 35-38C. In the Dead Sea, the water is always warm and even hot, the water temperature in February averages + 25C, in August it reaches + 30C.

Sometimes from the east hot winds come from the Sahara Desert, which in Israel are called hamsin and share. After their complete calm sets in, the temperature rises sharply, the air is still and saturated with particles of sand and dust.

The fresh breeze and the influence of the sea, even at the highest summer temperatures, prevent the feeling of unbearable heat. This is also due to the fact that in Israel there are no high mountains or towering rows of hotels to the sky that would block the natural ventilation of the sea beaches. And since the main island of Israel is rather small (three Israelis would fit in West Berlin), the climate is so balanced.

Best time to visit:

For a seaside holiday, the ideal time for tours to Israel is from March to May and from October to November. During this time the most pleasant weather conditions. Winter is a great time for sightseeing holidays in Israel and a trip to the Dead Sea.

Hotels nearby:

There are several hotels right next to the beach, including even relatively inexpensive options. 5 km to the south – in the city of Nahariya – the choice of hotels is much better, but the beach is already quite far away.
