What’s the weather like in Sharm El Sheikh in December?

Sharm El Sheikh’s on Egypt’s Red Sea Coast at the tip of the country’s Sinai Peninsula. This means it has a hot desert climate with high temperatures and hardly any rain all year round. If you’re going in December you’ll get cooler weather than over summer, which you might find better as it’s more comfortable.

Climatic influences

With only two seasons as opposed to four, summer lasts from March to October in Sharm El Sheikh, with winter from November to February. Although temperatures are lower in December, you’ll still have plenty of heat. With hardly any rainfall or cloud cover, you should choose when to go to Sharm El Sheikh based on what temperatures you like best. The Red Sea will help to keep you comfortable, with inland desert areas having even more extreme heat. The Atlas Mountains in North Africa are the reason for the lack of rain.


The average high in Sharm El Sheikh’s 23ºC in December, which drops to a cool 12ºC at night. The sea temperature’s a lovely 25ºC, while humidity’s low. There’s just 4mm of rain, leaving you to enjoy ten hours of daylight and eight hours of sunshine each day. UV levels will be moderate. Sunset’s just before 5pm.

Things to Do

The weather’s perfect for you to relax on the beach, have a dip in the sea and take advantage of your hotel’s All Inclusive perks, if you’re going down that route. Sharm El Sheikh’s one of the world’s most spectacular diving spots, so take to the depths or go snorkelling among the coral and wildlife. Ras Mohammed National Park’s just a short trip from Sharm.
