May, June, September and October are great times to go as the weather remains warm, but the city is less crowded. There’s also plenty to do in Haifa away from the beach - and these museums and sights can be enjoyed at any time of year.
Haifa holds several festivals throughout the year; most noticeably the wine and cheese festival held each May/June, the puppet festival and beer festival in late August, and the ‘Festival of Festivals’, held every December and celebrating each of the city’s 6 main religions, their coexistence and mutual respect.
