When the mercury soars and the sun beats down relentlessly, Israelis know it’s summertime. With temperatures often reaching over 100°F (38°C), the summer months in this Middle Eastern country are nothing short of scorching. But Israelis have perfected the art of staying cool and embracing the heat.

No summer day is complete without a trip to the beach. From the sparkling shores of the Mediterranean to the tranquil waters of the Dead Sea, Israelis flock to the country’s coastal areas to soak up the sun, splash in the waves, and enjoy a refreshing swim. Beach-goers can be found relaxing on the sand, playing lively games of matkot (a paddle ball-like sport), or indulging in delicious street food like freshly grilled corn on the cob.

As the sun sets, the party moves inland to Israel’s vibrant cities. Tel Aviv, the country’s cultural capital, comes alive at night with bustling outdoor markets, lively music performances, and rooftop bars that offer stunning views and cooling breezes. Meanwhile, in Jerusalem, locals and visitors alike stroll through the ancient alleyways of the Old City, stopping to enjoy a cold beer or a scoop of rich, creamy ice cream.

No matter how high the temperatures climb, Israelis know how to make the most of their sizzling summers. With a mix of sun-soaked activities, delicious cuisine, and lively nightlife, the hot season in Israel is anything but dull.
