When to go to Egypt: climate, best times and months to avoid

The season for holidays in Egypt – 2022: when is the best time to go?

Author

The Red Sea is knocking again on our “where to go” lists. So let’s take apart the season in Egypt: when is the best time to rest, so as not to freeze (and it happens).

Beach and Sea in Egypt

A trip to Egypt is an expectation of the hot sun, the warm Red Sea and all the delights of the climate, which is so lacking in Russia. But is it always beach season? And if not, when is it better to go to Egypt to rest?

All these questions are answered in this article. Let’s find out what to expect from Hurghada and Sharm el-Sheikh in different months, and whether there is a “low” season here at all.

In April 2022 they again launched charters from Moscow and St. Petersburg to Hurghada and Sharm el-Sheikh. Get the best prices for tours to Egypt – they have already appeared on aggregators:

Now the price tag for late spring (the best time on the Red Sea!) – from 100,000 rubles for a one-week tour for two.

Beginning and end of season in Egypt

Conventionally, the season in Egypt by months is divided into:

  • “cool” – from November to March
  • and “hot” – from April to October.

Even in the cold months the water temperature in the Red Sea does not drop below +20 ° C – and this year’s winter in Egypt is surprisingly warm with +22 … +23 in the water! – so you can swim in theory all year round.

Remember the three ideal months: May, October and November. This is the best time to travel to Egypt.

Although in general it is always relatively warm here, these months are the high season for holidays in Egypt. April is still not hot enough, summer and September are too hot. From December to the end of March is low tourist season, and for good reason: the wind blows from the desert khamsin, which turns +25 ° C in the thermometer to +15 ° C to the senses. However, this does not scare Russian tourists, many of our holidaymakers come here to rest in the off-season.

I traveled to Egypt in November and December: during the daytime I was glad that there was no stuffiness, which I hate so much, and in the evenings there was a pleasant fresh wind. The locals wore hats at that time.

Can I fly to Egypt now?

Pyramids in Egypt. Beach Vacation in Egypt

You can. This is one of the countries that are now open to Russians. To enter Egypt in 2022 everyone who is 12 and over needs either a psr-test in English with a qr-code and a validity of 72 hours, or a certificate from the State Service in English (but since the second dose of satellite must be at least 14 days). Visa on arrival in Sharm is free, but in Cairo and Hurghada it does not work – there will take, as usual, $25 per person.

The good news is that after six years there are again charter flights from Moscow and St. Petersburg to Hurghada and Sharm el-Sheikh. Look and choose tours to the Red Sea on the desired dates at the aggregators – tour operators have already posted proposals:

In case of an incorrigible desire to fly on your own, you can read my text about the trip with all the details about traveling in the country under new conditions, and you can immediately look for airline tickets on the search engine Aviasales – you need flights EgyptAir (Moscow-Cairo or Moscow-Sharm/Hurgada) or Russia on the route Sochi-Cairo.

A direct flight to Cairo from Moscow or Sochi, and then to the Red Sea by bus? Or a direct flight to Hurghada or Sharm el-Sheikh? It’s up to you – I chose the second option. We book and pay by Russian card the hotel on the Island – and here you have your individual tour.

Red bars – too hot

Blue bars – cool and sandy winds

It turns out that in Egypt there are 5 comfortable months of the year, when it is good to relax, go on excursions and swim in the sea. Let’s now understand: what holiday, say, in January will be different from the rest in May – because at the temperatures from the table and the Russian standards in the country is always warm!

Egypt in December, January and February

Red Sea Beach Red Sea Coast in Egypt

Despite the +23 ° C in the forecast, in Egypt in winter take with you sweatshirts and jeans for the evening.

What do I need to know about winter Egypt?

  • The wind is the main enemy of the beach vacation. If it blows, it is so that the sand in your teeth, and blow umbrellas on the beach.
  • It is cool outside in the morning and evening after sunset – but in the afternoon is so hot that you can manage to burn in the sun. Provided there is no wind.
  • Sharm el-Sheikh is a couple of degrees warmer because of its location.
  • In Sharm and Hurghada are the so-called “winter” hotels – those that are protected from the wind, sheltered in bays (I’ll list below).

In December in Egypt is still warm. It is no longer hot – in the air to +25 ° C, the sea has not yet had time to cool. Very rarely it may rain for a short time, the wind blows. This is the off-season, but prices for holidays closer to the end of the month go up – a lot of people want to celebrate the New Year in Egypt. So if you go on vacation in December, it is better to do it in the first half of the month (and the weather will be better).

In January, Egypt gets worse, the winds are more frequent. January is one of the worst months of the year, when the daytime can be only +17 ° C. Tourists, if they do bathe, either in wetsuits, or in and out, or in the pool. It gets dark at 5 pm. And why do we need it? – you ask. Look: the beaches are spacious, hotels and flights are cheaper, the sun and “all inclusive” in place all 31 days. But I still do not advise to go to Egypt with children at this time.

In February it’s still summer on the thermometer – it ranges from +16 ° C to +25 ° C, but the Egyptians are not fooled: they proclaim this month the coldest. All because the wind blows, the sea storms, the nights are cool and the temperature can drop to +10 ° C. Egyptian cities are literally covered with sand, and vacation during this period – only for those who are not afraid of the wind, and are willing to spend a little more time and effort to find a hotel.

So that you understand all seriousness of winds:

On the beaches put up fences, and the hotel at this time is not just any, and sheltered in the bay – then do without the down jackets on the sun loungers. If you do not want to shake out of your ears sand, take a closer look at these wind-protected hotels:

And here’s our acquaintance’s review of a winter holiday in Hurghada:

“The winter months are quite warm, but very windy, so sunbathing and swimming if the hotel is not sheltered from the winds is almost impossible. In addition, it gets dark as early as 5:00 p.m. on the street. All holidaymakers take out their jackets and shake as they walk to the restaurant for dinner. The only thing I wanted in those moments was to wrap up in a plaid, drink mulled wine, and watch a nice fall movie. And it was somehow unlike the usual seaside vacation.”

Egypt in March, April and May

View of Cairo View of Pyramids from hotel

Egypt in spring is half winter, half summer. And it’s windy and warm.

In March, especially the first half, the wind still blows and the weather is very changeable: the temperature jumps from +18 ° C to +26 ° C, sometimes it may rain. In short, March in Egypt is like in Russia, the continuation of winter. The Red Sea has not yet had time to warm up, and freezes at around +22 ° C. Swimming is not very comfortable, the more so that on the coast there are such rare for Egypt waves – even surfing competitions are held. The list of “winter” hotels from the section above for March is still relevant!

In April, summer slowly enters into its rights: you can open the swimming season (in water +23 ° C) and not be afraid of the wind. Be sure to put spf in your suitcase, it gets up to +30 ° C during the day. The closer to May – the ideal month for vacation – the better the weather.

In May the best season for holidays in Egypt begins in the early days and – for those who can’t stand the heat – in the latter days ends. The conditions are excellent: +25 ° C … +30 ° C on the coast, the water in the sea is warmer every day (+26 ° C at its peak, the May Turkey does not boast!). Come on a family vacation with kids, with grandparents – no one will grumble. True, the prices in May may bite: in Russia for a long holiday, and hotels know that the empty in any case, will not stay, and raise the cost (so book in advance).

Egypt in June, July, August

Red Sea Beach in Shram El Sheikh

June is still bearable, but in general summer is a time when you should not go to Egypt.

In June, air conditioning in the room is a must in the hotel search engine. The air in Hurghada and Sharm warms up to +32 ° C, the weather is dry and hot, the beach season is in full swing. Tourists spend days at sea, it’s +26 ° C and above, and a couple of trips out – in the buses is still possible to live, not survive.

In July comes the scorcher, when even the sea can’t save you. It begins one of the two hottest months of the year. The thermometer jumps up to +40 ° C by the water, few people find that comfortable. July is definitely not the best time to look at the pyramids and go on excursions: in Cairo and the desert areas it’s 60 degrees Celsius. The only advice if you come to Egypt in summer: take a hotel with a pool and good air conditioning.

In August the weather is not much different from July. Even the locals are exhausted from the heat. In such extreme conditions at least choose the resort of Dahab – here year-round fresh wind blows, it’s easier to endure the heat.

Our author Yasya says.

“The first time I flew to Egypt in the summer, and it’s nothing short of hell. Especially contraindicated for those who can’t stand the heat at all – on windless days the weather seems to reach +50 degrees!!! The sea will not help to cool down – when you dip, it feels like you’re going into a hot bath.”

Egypt in September, October and November

Our hotel in Egypt

The best time to relax: warm, sunny and no wind!

But be careful: Egypt in the fall, especially in early September, it’s HOT, stretching from summer – up to +36 ° C outside. But with the second half of the month and sunbathing is good, and the sea to swim, and go on excursions.

In October, the beach season in Egypt continues: the day bakes to +30 ° C, drops to +25 ° C in the evening – this month is loved by Europeans and us Russians. The wind on the coast sometimes, but warm, rest it does not interfere. In general, it’s worth velvet season, which tourists are waiting so much.

November is the official start of the cold season. The locals wrap themselves in jackets and laugh at the resorts in T-shirts and shorts. But who else should laugh at who: it’s +23°C to +26°C outside. The sea is also +26 degrees. The weather is consistently sunny, but the wind can ruin everything – although November is different, and, for example, in 2020 it was a record hot and windless.

When is the best time to vacation in Egypt?

The Cairo Citadel

If we talk about the weather in Egypt by month, October and November are the most comfortable months. The water temperature is 27 degrees, the air temperature is 29 ° C to 31 ° C. Perfect! The best time for excursions.

In fact, the holiday season in Egypt is almost all year round – but in May, late December and September there are the most tourists. When the season starts, there are crowds of tourists at the pyramids, prices skyrocket, and that’s a big minus. But when it’s the best month in Egypt – November and October or April – there aren’t too many holidaymakers. You can rest easy in Hurghada or Sharm el-Sheikh, take cheap excursions, take beautiful pictures without unnecessary people.

If we talk about what month is better to go with children, the same as without them. I do not think that the child and you will like the sandstorm in February and March, as well as in the summer heat to rest the whole family will not be good. So this time for a holiday with children is better not to choose.

What to see in Egypt?

The pyramids in Giza Mosque in Hurghada

Egypt is a great place to combine cultural and beach holidays. No matter what month you come to Egypt, there is something to see on a tour or on your own:

  • The Pyramids of Giza (in Cairo)
  • Egyptian Museum of Antiquities (in Cairo)
  • Luxor and Abu Simbel temple complexes (to see the ancient heritage of the pharaohs).
  • Bedouin villages (take them from Sharm and Dahab, with overnight stay and quad bikes for those who want)
  • Blue Hole (place of active diving near Dahab)
  • St. Catherine Monastery on Mount Sinai
  • The Colored Canyon (it is worth going in the “cold” months).

Our review and tips about Egypt

View of the pyramids in Egypt

Between Hurghada and Sharm el-Sheikh I choose the latter: it seems to me more modern and developed. Plus, it’s warmer in the off-season. Honestly, in Egypt there are many things that can irritate – the intrusiveness of the locals, their constant desire to cash in on tourists, unkempt hotels with average prices, etc.

  • Be sure to haggle at the bazaars to bring the price down by 2 or 3 times.
  • Trust the internet more than local advice.
  • And don’t leave without tasting some delicious Egyptian mango!

I’ve been to Egypt twice and for a total of a month and a half. The desire to do it a third time I do not have. But, perhaps, I like a calm measured rest in one hotel, then I would go again.

When is cheaper to vacation in Egypt?

When the excitement ends for the May and New Year holidays, and then you have an opportunity to go to Egypt cheap. Summer and winter are equally cheap, but it’s better to go in the colder months than in the hotter ones, when you can’t get out of the hotel.

If you are tired of the grayness of the Russian weather, you want peace of mind and the warm sea with beautiful fish – Egypt will not disappoint you.

Season for holidays in Egypt – 2022: seasonal weather

Luxor Egypt

After 6 years of the “ban on entry”, Egypt has again opened its warm African embrace of the Russians. And we are glad, because now the available countries for winter holidays can be counted on the fingers.

I know that many are longing for the sandy beaches of Hurghada and Sharm, the bright underwater world of the Red Sea and a hearty buffet of Egyptian hotels. So I decided to write an “actual” – let’s see what time is the best season in Egypt, and when it is better to relax by months.

Requirements for entry into Egypt

Coronavirus restrictions in Egypt have been abolished: no more tests and QR codes!

And in general, we have a separate article about the current rules of entry to Egypt. We are constantly updating it. We advise you to read it, because it covers all the organizational details: where to get a certificate, and how to properly fill out the declaration.

Note: Since the visa is issued on arrival, at the entrance can be scrupulously check vouchers and airline tickets. So I recommend booking tours only on trustworthy sites. I usually use three services, which have all the current offers of tour operators.

I compare prices and buy the most profitable tour. I feel comfortable and at ease with them:

Weather in Egypt by month (and my travel experience)

Weather throughout the country is about the same. But the main resorts – Hurghada and Sharm el-Sheikh, they will be guided.

To understand clearly what time of the season in Egypt, and when it is better to relax, made a handy table with the weather by month.

Season in Egypt by month, the average temperature:

month

t daytime

t at night

t water

As for me, in Egypt it is comfortable to vacation 7 months of the year – I highlighted them in green in the table . The weather is warm, the water is warm – will be fine on the beach and on excursions to the pyramids.

I was in Egypt in early February. It’s low season, when there are few tourists and cheap tour prices, but you can still bring an even African tan. For me, the sea was cool and I did not swim, but someone quietly went into the water and enjoyed every moment of the vacation. But in the heated pool with a glass of mojito I was quite comfortable!

I propose to consider in more detail when it is better to vacation in Egypt and to understand what weather awaits us in each month of the year.

September

Pyramid in Egypt Entrance to the Pyramid

In September the temperature does not drop below +30 ° C, so resting on the beach is comfortable – but rather in the second half of the month. The heat after a hot summer gradually recedes, and the end of September opens the long-awaited “velvet season.

The sea in Egypt is very warm, so families with small children and infants – those who are not affected by the September school rush – often vacation here.

For excursions is still a bit hot – the air in Luxor and Aswan, for example, heats up to +38 ° C. It’s too hot to walk around the ancient monuments, better to settle on a lounger by the Red Sea.

The water temperature ranges from +32 ° C to +35 ° C, the temperature +27 ° C to +28 ° C. Advice: Take sunscreen SPF 50 + and something against burns just in case – the African sun is merciless, and even if it’s cloudy you can get burnt.

October

The best month! In October, the beach holiday reaches its climax. The Red Sea is warm even in the evening, the temperature is pleasant for the beach and for excursions. There may be the occasional refreshing rain, which will revive the thirsty nature after the exhausting summer.

The temperature of the water is +27°C. Advice: If you’re planning a vacation in October, book your trip now – even though it’s high season you can still get some discounts:

November

In November, the wind increases, but it does not scare us Russians, who have seen a slushy and frosty November. On the contrary, to land in a hot, albeit slightly windy city is a dream of any resident of our country. The difference between day and night temperatures is already quite noticeable, so it’s time to throw a blouse and a light jacket in your suitcase.

Advice: Egyptian resorts are often visited for family vacations during the school vacations in November – remember when planning your trip that tours in this period may be more expensive.

December

December is noticeably cooler, but you can still swim and sunbathe. The situation is overshadowed by the occasional raging winds. Just so you understand – by winter on the beaches of some hotels are put special fences to umbrellas are not blown away, and the sand does not fly tourists in the eyes. But the beach holiday can be diluted by a trip to the pyramids or a quad bike safari in the desert – it will be comfortable to travel around the country.

Note that after December 20, tour prices soar, because many people want to celebrate Christmas and New Year in Egypt. To catch adequate prices, Russians and Europeans book their Christmas vacations in September.

Advisor: Choose hotels in the bays – they save you from the wind, it’s more comfortable to rest there.

In Sharm el Sheikh, I recommend these hotels:

  • 4*Reef Oasis Beach Resort
  • 4*Pick Albatros Aqua Blu Resort
  • 5*Sentido Reef Oasis Senses Resort
  • 5*Tropitel Naama Bay
  • 5*Naama Bay Promenade Mountain Resort
  • 4*Jaz Sol Y Mar Naama Bay

The wind doesn’t blow these hotels away in Hurghada:

  • 5*Jaz Makadina
  • 5*Sunrise Royal Makadi Resort
  • 5*Prima Life Makadi
  • 5*Mirage Bay Resort & Aqua Park

January

The winds are still blowing hard in January, but it’s still possible to snag a nice even tan. In this regard, a little better in Sharm el-Sheikh – the resort is surrounded by mountains, so the wind there is less. In Hurghada it’s a couple of degrees cooler and the water is also a bit more invigorating.

January is a great time for excursions. Agree, travel to the pyramids is much more comfortable in crisp weather than in the grueling African heat.

Advice: In January, the price for a holiday is much lower. And if you take care of buying a tour in advance, you can get the action “early booking” and save a lot of money. I usually look for such discounts at Level.Travel – the site automatically shows the best deals from all tour operators.

February

Cairo walking along the Nile

The third month of winter is the coldest month of the year. I think the Egyptians slightly grin at the Russians happily running into the abyss of the sea in February. They just don’t know how cold we are during the winter in their country.

I see nothing wrong with a February tour – the weather in Egypt is warm, and tour prices are cheap. If the pyramids, Cairo, Luxor and a delicious all-inclusive you are more in tune with than swimming in the sea – take a vacation without hesitation.

Tip: Put a warmer jacket in your suitcase – night temperatures can drop to +10 ° C. The temperature may vary from +18 ° C to +23 ° C. The water temperature is +21 ° C to +22 ° C. But what am I saying? You’ll be wearing warm clothes when you get out of Russia The air temperature rises a couple times a year in March.

In March, the temperature rises by a couple of degrees, but it is still cool to get out of the water because of the winds. The first month of spring is ambiguous about the weather – it can be lucky and it can be uncomfortable. If you plan to sunbathe and swim a lot, I still suggest choosing hotels in the bays from the “winter” list above.

Tip: In any shop you can buy special arafatki, saving your face and hair from the sand. I recommend not neglecting this item, as the winds in March are still strong.

April

By Russian standards in Egyptian April is the real summer. A warm breeze blows over our faces and gently welcomes us on the airplane ramp. Be careful, the breeze is deceptive and can cause burns – do not forget the sunscreen and hats!

The temperature of the water is from +27 ° C to +30 ° C +23 ° C to +24 ° C. Advice: Do not rely on “hot deals” and buy tours in advance. In the middle of the month the beach season swings up, and hotels at this time is already busy.

In May, the water is well warmed up, it’s hot outside, and everyone forgets about the annoying sandstorms. This is the best month for recreation – the bathing season is in full swing.

Many people prefer Egypt for a long weekend in May. After all, the main rival – Turkey – can not boast of +26 degrees in the water. At this time there are a lot of families, because they believe that to go to Egypt with a child is better in May. And not in vain, the spring is really great!

T water temperatures range from +28 ° C to +33 ° C +24 ° C to +26 ° C. Advice: Look for your ideal hotel in advance! Hotels in Egypt inflate prices for the May holidays, because they know that they will not be left without reservations. They take advantage of the fact that Russians have long vacations, and they want to spend them on a gentle beach.

Summer in Egypt is hot, but the refreshing sea breeze still gives a comfortable holiday in June. It’s warm to swim, the air is scalding when you get out of the water, but the tourist season is gradually ending.

In Hurghada the water and air temperature is still a little lower, so if you’re afraid of the heat, look closely at this resort. Beaches in Hurghada are dotted with golden sand, clean, comfortable and as good as the coast of Sharm el-Sheikh.

The water temperature ranges from +32 ° C to +34 ° C, the water +26 ° C to +27 ° C. Advice: If you have long wanted to get a diver’s license – now is the time to make your dream come true! In Egypt, plenty of diving schools with low-cost courses, and the Red Sea is very rich in the underwater world. For the sake of him come here, even from Australia and America.

In July, you can not get out of the sea for hours – it is so warmed up that the water is more comfortable to swim than resting on the shore. The best adjective to describe the July heat is sizzling. You need to cover your head not only in the sun, but also in the shade, on the water and even underwater.

You can forget about traveling inland – it’s too hot. And swim with caution, there may be sea urchins in the water. In general, July is the season when you should not go to Egypt.

The water temperature ranges from +35 ° C to +38 ° C, t +27 ° C to +28 ° C. Advice: Wear a jacket with sun protection even during the swimming – the water does not protect from UV rays, on the contrary, increases their effect and you can get very sunburned.

August

It would seem to be no further, but there is a knock on the bottom – in August the holiday will be more grueling than relaxing. The climate is hot, the temperature is higher than in July, the water is nearing the +30 mark, and you can get burnt in the first minute of your stay in the sun.

From +35 ° C to +40 ° C water t from +29 ° C to +30 ° C Advice: I recommend to forget about the idea of an August vacation in Egypt and look more gentle resorts in Turkey.

What can I see in Egypt? My review

Luxor Egypt 1 Luxor Egypt 2

Egypt is an ancient civilization and there is definitely something to see here. Many people initially come to Egypt for the pyramids, Cairo and Luxor, not a beach vacation at all. I made a spreadsheet, it shows how rich Egyptian excursions are.

Popular and interesting excursions in Egypt:

Excursion Name

The tour begins in the evening to make it to Sinai in time for sunrise. It takes about three hours to get to Mount Moses. You can climb to the summit itself on foot or on camelback. After sunrise and breakfast, tourists go down and see the monastery of St. Catherine.

A sea of experiences in one day: colorful cliffs, corals, camel rides, underwater world in Abu Galum Reserve, “Blue Hole”, quad bikes, hearty lunch and Dahab market.

This is a tour from Sharm el-Sheikh. During the day you will see: – Capital Cairo – Egyptian Museum – Giza Pyramids – Cheops Pyramid – Great Sphinx – Papyrus Museum For an additional fee you can go on a cruise on the Nile.

Dresden, Germany: Dresden city center Saxony

This excursion from Hurghada to Luxor, Egypt’s ancient capital. During the tour, tourists see: – City of the living, where the locals live and reigns a real oriental color; – City of the Dead – the other side of the Nile, where there is the Valley of the Dead with temples and tombs, the Colossus of Memnon, a rock temple of queen Hatshepsut. If desired, you can go on a cruise on the Nile to Banana Island.

Just imagine: a calm evening, a ship sailing on the Nile, the shining lights of Cairo. During the cruise you watch live performances, listen to traditional Arabic songs and taste the local cuisine. This is a cozy Arabian night, which is sure to remain in memory for years.

In general, in Egypt, there are many inexpensive entertainment and excursions, which can dilute the leisurely lying on the beach. I, for example, went on safari, review of Hurghada, went down to the depths in a submarine – even a certificate somewhere there.

When I travel – both in Russia and abroad – I book excursions on three well-known sites. I compare prices beforehand, of course. There you can cancel the reservation for free if plans change, and read reviews about the guides. They also have tours in Russian and often have discounts. Here are these sites:

Reviews of tourists on holidays in Egypt.

Excursion to Luxor

If you go to any forum about tourism, you’ll find that people are just waiting for the season in Egypt in 2022.

Everyone is longing for the Red Sea resorts: young people, retirees, families with children and travel agents. When the season starts in Egypt, even divers from all over the world come here. If you want to know, according to their reviews diving in Sharm el Sheikh is more interesting than in Hurghada. There are more colorful reefs and popular spots with a bright underwater world.

Lovers of leisurely beach holidays in the area have always appreciated Egypt for its budget, good obliging service, delicious food, included alcohol and fun animation.

Where is the best place to stay in Egypt? Sharm El Sheikh or Hurghada?

We have a detailed article about the resorts of Egypt, but the most important are Hurghada and Sharm el-Sheikh. Choosing between them is not so difficult if you look at the situation objectively. Here are a couple of tips:

    1. If you want a youth “party” – it is better to go to Sharm el-Sheikh. There’s music until dawn, more “fun” hotels, and outside – a lot of clubs and a vibrant nightlife.
    2. If you’re going with a family, look at hotels in Hurghada. In this resort is quieter, each hotel has a large area, where there is everything your heart desires: swimming pools, restaurants, alcohol, discos, animation, children’s clubs. Outside the area there are few entertainments – a couple of cafes and a small market.
    3. In Hurghada a couple of degrees cooler – it will be easier to bear the summer heat. In winter it will be more comfortable in the bays of Sharm closed to the wind.
    4. If it is important for you to see the pyramids, Luxor, the Valley of the Kings, Giza and Cairo, it is better to go to Hurghada. There are more day trips from here, because this resort is closer to the main attractions.
    5. If it is important to save money, then accommodation is cheaper in Hurghada. Excursions from here are also cheaper, because it is closer to the sights of Egypt than Sharm el-Sheikh.

When is better to go with a child?

Go with a child is better in September, October, November, April and May – it’s all high season in Egypt, so be prepared for the appropriate prices. A child will be comfortable to swim and be in the sun. Also, from September to mid-December is mango season – take advantage of this if your little ones have already tasted this fruit.

I take the trips with a child a little easier and even would be happy to spend the winter in Egypt. The kids will get a healthy dose of vitamin D even in the February sun, and there is valuable seawater in almost every heated pool. And also the prices for tours during this period are lower. And, of course, for the kids will be better if you go for a month or two.

While writing this paragraph, I seriously thought about the impending winter and went looking for decent hotels for holidays with children in Egypt. I searched long and meticulously. Pulled from the heart those that caught my eye the most:

Hotels for holidays with children in Sharm el Sheikh:

  • 5* Albatros Aqua Park Sharm El Sheikh
  • 5* Hilton Sharm Waterfalls Resort
  • 4* Jaz Fanara Resort
  • 5* Sentido Reef Oasis Senses Aqua Park Resort
  • 5* Reef Oasis Beach Resort
  • 4* Aqua Blu Resort Sharm El Sheikh

Hotels for children in Hurghada:

  • 5* Sunrise Garden Beach Resort
  • 5* Stella Di Mare Beach Resort & Spa
  • 5* Titanic Palace
  • 5* Jasmine Palace Resort
  • 5* Mirage Bay Resort & Aqua Park
  • 4* Jungle Aqua Park

When is the cheapest time to go on vacation to Egypt?

Here are some tips for saving on a vacation in Egypt:

    1. Choose a holiday in the low season – in summer or in February, if you are not afraid of heat or winds.
    2. New Year in Egypt, as well as the May holidays are expensive. Book tours for the period after New Year and May vacations – the buying rush on holidays in these dates falls, and hotels cut prices.
    3. Book tours several months before the trip – so you can get a discount for early booking.
    4. Take tours not from a local tour operator, but on Sputnik8 – there are lots of discounts and good Russian speaking guides.
