An unexpected heatwave at the start of December brought everyone in Israel out to enjoy the sunshine.
Swimmers, sunbathers and paddleboarders headed down to the beach to enjoy the calm sea and sudden heat.
Israel has a huge expanse of coastline and the beach remains one of the top places to visit both in good weather and bad.
