If you love to swim, the Red Sea won’t let you down. The waters are milder in the summer but remain warm throughout the year. The clear waters are great for scuba diving and snorkelling with an average temperature of around 23°C.

For cooler weather and very low humidity, the best time to go to Sharm El Sheikh is in the winter. With an average temperature of 19°C, you get a nice break from the intense heat of summer while still having enough heat and sunshine to enjoy.
