Red Sea Water Temperature

The Red Sea, located between Africa and Asia, is known for its warm water, great climate all year long and amazing diving conditions. While there are eight countries bordering the Red Sea, most of its best holiday destinations lie in Egypt (Sharm-el-Sheikh, Dahab and Hurghada, to name a few popular ones).


Vacationing at the Red Sea coast is a perfect opportunity to combine relaxing at the warm beach, swimming or diving, and sightseeing in some of the most breathtaking historical places on Earth.

Best time to Visit the Red Sea

One of the major appeals of the Red Sea coast is its climate – it’s a great place to visit regardless of the time of year. The temperature of both air and water stays pleasantly high even during the mild winter – the December/January average of air temperature is 77° F, with water temperature as high as 64° F!

If you are not a fan of extreme heat, try to avoid the hottest months of July and August, when air temperature reaches 108° F and above, and water is at balmy 84° F. Nights are typically cooler, especially in the winter months. The holiday destinations at the Red Sea coast are well connected and prepared for tourism, so it’s enough to fly to your resort of choice and set up any additional sightseeing while there.
