Petra – Weather
You’ll get the best beach and sightseeing weather if you visit Petra in the early summer months, before the temperatures really soar. But if you like water sports, snorkelling and swimming in the sea, August might be a better time to go, when the water at the Blue Flag beach will be at its warmest after all the July sunshine. There’s very little rain in Petra all summer so you’ll be unlucky if there are many showers during your holiday. However, if you’re worried about that, then you might like to know that rainfall is least likely in July and August.
