Banana Beach, Tel Aviv, Israel

From: Wikipedia (Tel Aviv Promenade)

The city of Tel Aviv is located by the cost of the mediterranean sea. Because of that the summers are characterized by moderate temperatures and breezes. The cause of that is the high specific heat of the water, that keeps the water cool for a longer time than the sand arround. This effect does not exists in the deserts, because of the low specific heat of the sand.
