Many people associate Egypt with sand, but sandy beaches are often overlooked. However, Egypt has some stunning sandy beaches and crystal-clear waters. The beaches and resorts on the Red Sea offer some of the best opportunities for windsurfing, kitesurfing, and scuba diving.


If you're planning a trip to Egypt in the winter, Cairo should definitely be on your list. As the capital city, it's rich in history and culture. The Pyramids of Giza are just outside the city, and winter is the best time to visit, as temperatures average around 20 degrees Celsius. However, the nights can be windy and temperatures can drop to 50 F, so be prepared with warm clothing.

 January 20 is the coldest day of the year, with an average low temperature of 10 degrees Celsius and an average high of 19 degrees Celsius. December 11 is the cloudiest day.

Marsa Alam:

Marsa Alam, located on the western shore of the Red Sea, is another popular winter destination. It offers a variety of activities for families, friends, or couples, including scuba diving and exploring the Emerald Mines and Seti Temple.

Luxor and Aswan:

Luxor and Aswan are also great places to visit in winter. The weather is perfect for touring these two attractions, as temperatures are mild during the day and cool at night. During the summer, the heat can be unbearable, so winter is the best time to explore these areas.

In conclusion, Egypt is an exciting destination in winter, with modern cities and incredible attractions like the Pyramids of Giza. Don't miss out on the opportunity to explore this fascinating country during the winter months.
