On the coast the Winter season brings rain but the temperature usually remains average. Typical tourists sights like Eilat can still be visited during the winter as long as you don’t mind getting some rain.
Between June and August temperatures are high and if you choose these months to visiting Israel, you’ll be able to visit Jerusalem and the highland areas on all their splendor. During the Summer, Tel Aviv and the south of the country are usually warmer.

The best way to know exactly the best month to visit Israel, you need to know exactly the cities you plan to visit and the activities you plan to do there. For example, while February is still winter so not a great month to go to the southern beaches, it can be a perfect month to visit the Golan Heights which tend to be covered with beautiful grass and wildflowers. Israel has more hiking trails (per square mile) than any other country in the world and February can be a perfect month to explore it.
April is an amazing month to visit Israel. For Pilgrims this is one of the best months. The rainy season is almost over the temperature start to get hotter and even the beaches are already open to the public. Easter and Passover are an amazing experience for Pilgrims, but during those weeks there’s too many tourists and prices tend to be more expensive.
In June and August most tourists tend to go to the beaches. The best time to go to the beach during those months is before 11am and after 4pm to avoid the highest temperatures.
