I'm trying to plan a trip to Tel Aviv (and also Jerusalem) and am wondering what the weather in late March/April will be like? It would be nice to be able to swim in the sea and spend some time on the beach (but this isn't a priority) but I want to avoid the very hot weather of the summer months hence my decision to travel in spring. In general I'm not really travelling to Tel Aviv for a beach holiday but I would like to have sunny, warm, dry weather that is conducive to walking around the city and generally spending time outdoors in the street, eating outdoors at cafes etc if at all possible and perhaps also going to the beach/parks . Would the weather in March be suitable for these sort of activities? And if you had to choose between March/April/May for this sort of holiday in Tel Aviv, which month would you recommend? Is spring weather in Tel Aviv similar to southern Europe (such as Southern Portugal for example)? Many thanks for your help!
