  • Sunny and Windy is how the weather can be described in Hurghada. The temperature ranges from 23°C during the winter to 38 degrees in July when in the hottest period. The water temperature is nice throughout the year with 22°C as the coldest and up to 28°C in the summer. Leave your rain clothes at home; you will have no use for them. Rain in this area is very rare but it might rain for a few minutes 1 or 2 times per year or so.
  • The wind in the Red Sea is created by the difference in temperature between the land and sea and blows all year around averaging from Force 4-7Bft. (75 % of the days). In Hurghada this is accelerated by the mountain formations along the Red Sea and a bit more by Giftun Island offshore. It will generally pick up during the day and can often start early and sometimes blow all day. At Magawish the wind normally blows slightly side off shore in the morning with a change to side shore at noon.
