Among the most visited metropolises in the Arab countries, Tel Aviv stands out in first place for its western trend and its liveliness. Much sought after destination for the most sparkling nightlife in the country, this is a city full of attractions of all kinds ranging from night clubs to popular markets (where you can buy spices and traditional products), but also modern spaces and avant-garde skyscrapers alternating with neighborhoods with a more exotic charm.

If you are considering the Israeli capital as a destination for an upcoming trip, however, be careful to carefully choose the most favorable time of year. Here are the best months and which ones to avoid.

Climate, Average Temperatures and Precipitation

  • Best time: May-June and September-October. July and August can be very hot
  • Period to avoid: none in particular, but summer is sultry and humid, with peaks over 40 degrees. The periods of the Easter holidays are expensive and very crowded. Winter from November to February is not suitable for beach life

The city overlooks the sea, has the typical climate of all areas bathed by the Mediterranean, that is very mild and partly rainy winters and sultry, sunny summers. Annual temperatures tend to be pleasant: the maximums vary from 18 ° C to 30 ° C, while the minimums are recorded around 10 ° C in the coldest months and 23 ° C in the summer months.

However, being a large city where (despite the attention from the government and citizens) the presence of pollution is inevitable, albeit in limited quantities, the perceived temperatures can often be quite high, especially during the summer period where they can touch the perceived 35 °!
Also keep in mind that the part of the city facing the sea is more tempered by cooler breezes even in summer, while as you go towards the city center the feeling of mugginess only increases.

When to go to Tel Aviv: the cheapest period

Low season is in winter, excluding holidays. However, the period is not ideal to enjoy the sea and the beauty of Tel Aviv. Spring and autumn are excellent compromises between climate and savings, especially the month of October.

Avoid the period between the Easter holidays when the city is literally stormed by tourists (many of whom then headed to Jerusalem and Bethlehem) and the costs of accommodation skyrocket.

Tel Aviv in Spring

The spring months are quite pleasant with temperatures that remain cool until mid-April: this is why it is the perfect time to visit the metropolis, taking advantage of the long days of good weather. If your aim is to enjoy the sea, however, we would like to point out that the water temperatures become acceptable only from mid-May (before they hardly exceed 18 ° C).

Tel Aviv in Summer

Sultry season, sunny and with extreme peaks of humidity concentrated especially between the months of July and August. Moreover, more and more often, heat waves from neighboring Egypt occur in this period, bringing temperatures (already high) over 40 ° even near the coast. On the other hand, the sea temperature in summer is perfect for enjoying a soak in total relaxation: in fact, in late August, near the beaches, the sea has an average temperature that even reaches 28 °!

Tel Aviv in Autumn

Featuring perfect climate, ideal for exploring the city far and wide taking advantage of the beautiful days both to venture into the areas close to the seafront and in the more internal and close to the center. Only towards mid-November, in fact, do the first days of cold and the first rainfall appear.

Tel Aviv in Winter

It is cold but mild, with daytime temperatures that even reach 20 °. Although most of the annual rainfall is concentrated in the months between December and February (when the over 580 mm per year pours), even the winter days can be quite sunny with an average of 6 hours of light per day.
