Vacation in Egypt in April and what is the weather like there

In Egypt in April

Egypt is a country whose favorable climate is suitable for rest all year round. And if you are wondering "Is it worth going to Egypt in April?", the answer will be unequivocal and affirmative. However, the month of April has some features that you need to know about before you leave:

April is the opening of the beach season. Unlike the cold and damp Russian or European spring, spring in Egypt is completely different. The cool season in Egypt ends in April and is replaced by warm and even hot. The water and air are warming up more, it's time for long beach activities: swimming, sunbathing, boat trips.

There are still a few fruits in April: all the same oranges, bananas, strawberries, dates. The first harvests of medlars, watermelons and melons are ripening. Due to the likelihood of desert storms, trips on excursions to the desert may be temporarily postponed.

In March-April (the period changes annually), the main Muslim holiday of Ramadan is celebrated, and a 30-day fast begins, when Muslims refuse to eat and drink during daylight hours. Tourists are advised to refrain from eating and drinking alcohol in public places so as not to cause irritation on the part of Muslims.

Average temperatures in April at resorts such as Sharm el-Sheikh, Hurghada and others are observed at around:

Weather in Egypt in April
Sharm el-Sheikh Hurghada Cairo
Absolute Maximum ℃ 41 41,4 43
Average Temperature ℃ 25,5 23,8 21,6
The Absolute Minimum ℃ 12 11,6 6,8
Water Temperature ℃ 25 22 -
Precipitation, mm. 0,2 1 1,1

Thus, it can be seen that in the spring the air warms up more strongly, the average temperatures in all resorts during the day are not lower than +23, can reach up to +35. Evening temperatures do not drop below +20, but the wind still persists, although not cold. Therefore, it will not be superfluous to take a hoodie for a walk. During the day, shorts and T-shirts make up the basis of the wardrobe.

Near the coast, the water temperature is not yet sufficiently warmed up, the bathing season is just beginning. Nevertheless, every day it gets warmer and by the end of the month it will become more comfortable and you can stay in it for the whole day. It still doesn't hurt to have a wetsuit if you want to go diving or snorkeling. If the wind persists, it is better to choose the windless side on the beach. If you prefer to relax by the pool, it will be more pleasant to swim in a heated pool, but during this period the heating in most hotels is already turned off. Therefore, it will be better to sunbathe and swim during the day. And do not forget about sun protection, it may be needed.

Precipitation at all resorts is so minimal that it's not realistic to get caught in the rain. The probability remains in Cairo and Giza, and then, at this time, they are extremely rare.

There are almost no cloudy days in April, but if they do, it won't be for long. They are not a hindrance to beach holidays, you can sunbathe and swim.

The winds gradually subside in April, but they can still be cool and unpleasant at times. By the end of the month, the gusts weaken and the wind becomes warmer. On the beach in the middle of the day, a light breeze from the sea will even be an escape from the heat. Still choose closed areas of the beach for relaxation.

The period of sandstorms, which began in March, ends in April. The wind blowing from the northeast may bring sand and dust particles to the coast, but this is unlikely. During the storm season, trips to Cairo, Giza and the deserts may be canceled. To protect yourself from sand during this period, bring a scarf or arafatka, glasses.

In spring, at any of the resorts in Egypt, you can find jellyfish near the shore. In March-April, the time of reproduction comes and there are significantly more of them. Those that live in Egypt, as a rule, are safe. To avoid unpleasant moments in the form of a burn, it is better not to touch them.

Daylight begins to increase. It starts getting dark at the beginning of the seventh:
