Is Makadi Bay a good place for a winter holiday?

The Red Sea is a year-round destination and temperatures in winter remain in the mid 20sºC, although it can feel cold at night. The sea temperatures also remain in the 20s so it is still lovely and warm. Winter months such as November and March are the perfect times to visit Egypt with day temperatures in the high 20s/low 30s and warm evenings.
