Hotel seasons


July and August tend to be the most visited months of the year with everyone fighting for a spot in the sun. When planning your vacation, be prepared for higher hotel prices compared to the rest of the year.

Sharm el-Sheikh has become a very popular destination for Europeans seeking budget sunshine holidays, but as trouble in the region has heated up again, fewer people are willing to take the chance on a visit.


The warm and dry weather all year round has not been enough of a lure for many potential visitors, so hotel rates in the city have come down quite a bit as they struggle for business. Food and even drinks are good deals here by international resorts standards, though not as cheap as in Cairo, which has its own worries.

While most people come here just to relax by the beach, there are plenty of water-sport activities to choose from, at generally appealing prices. Once things in the region seem to have stabilized again, we expect Sharm el-Sheikh to come back in a big way.

Located on the shores of the Red Sea, Sharm El Sheikh attracts year round visitors with its sunny, warm and dry weather. Due to its consistently tropical weather, every month is great for adventure travel, especially for those who love to enjoy the water.

However, it is important to note that the sand storm season runs from Febuary to April. This doesn’t mean that every day is stormy but it does make it a little harder to plan as each storm tends to last a few days.
