The air temperature in the summer is in the mid to upper 30s°C, while in the winter it cools to the low 20s°C and high above 15°C. The water temperature is as low as 19°C and as high as 30°C. Why mention the water temperature, you ask? For snorkeling, the water temperature can be very important!
You can go in the summer, but be prepared for uber-hot weather. Temperatures are more reasonable during the late fall through early spring.
The nice thing about Egypt is you really don’t have to plan for rain: rain doesn’t really ever seem to happen. You do, however, need to be mindful of dust storms which happen in late spring to early summer.
Be mindful that your trip will be different if you go during the month of Ramadan which was in May/June in 2017 and moves eleven days earlier each year. As you might think, the country is not nearly as convenient for tourists at this time, as stores, restaurants, and government offices often have drastically reduced hours.
So for the most of people February & March are the best time to travel to Hurghada, it’s warm and all of activities you can do in Hurghada are available.
