What’s the weather like in Hurghada in December?
If you fancy a sunny escape and relaxing by a pool or the beach at Christmas time, the Hurghada weather in December is amazing. This wonderful resort is one of the most popular in Egypt and attracts visitors all year round thanks to its incredible Mediterranean-like climate.
Hurghada’s on the east coast of Egypt, about 10km south of the resort of El Gouna. Its golden sandy beaches are lapped by the crystal-clear waters of the Red Sea, which provide a welcoming sea breeze in the hot temperatures. Inland cities like Cairo and Luxor don’t benefit from this.
Pack light clothes, sunglasses and plenty of sunblock for your trip to Egypt’s Red Sea at this time. The weather in Hurghada in December is warm, with an average high of 23°C.
