. When is the best time to visit Hurghada

With a year-round dry and temperate climate, Hurghada is good for vacation all year round.

June through September is usually considered the best time to visit especially if you want to go snorkeling and scuba diving. During this period, the Red Sea coast enjoys a much cooler weather than Egypt’s inland, with average temperatures hovering around 84°F (29°C) and sea temperature about 80°F (27°C). If you choose to go in July and August, it’s best to make the booking early as the resort is frequented with many European and American visitors as well as Egyptians who want to get away from the summer heat of Cairo. Besides, it is important to apply a lot of sun cream to avoid skin damage. Winter and early spring is a good time to visit Hurghada if you want to avoid the heat of summer and look for cheaper hotel rates.
