Be ready to jump into the pure magic when exploring this Middle Eastern country on the Mediterranean Sea. The best time to visit Israel runs from December through April. It starts with spiritual Hanukkah and its customs and treats. Early spring comes with biking through the endless desert while watching it bloom. Colder months are the right season to enjoy the tranquillity of the Dead Sea. June through August and during holidays, Israel gets crowded with curious tourists. So if your ultimate purpose is sprawling on the beach far away from noisy troops, choose May or September at its calmest. Moreover, during September off-season, in the context of holiest days of Yom Kippur, you have an excellent chance to witness Israeli cities on hold, looking as abandoned ones.
