When to Go

It’s usually a good time to visit Tel Aviv during the fall and spring, when it is not too hot but you can still go to the beach (September, October, May, June). November is usually a good time to go. The lifeguards are still working and protecting beachgoers, which means you still see people swimming and having fun at the beach.
