Weather Averages for Hurghada in August
Averages for Hurghada in August
The Egyptian resort destination of Hurghada is situated on the Red Sea Coast, renowned for being one of the warmest seas in the world. The city is a major tourist hotspot and enjoys year round warm and dry weather.
August is the hottest month in Hurghada, and temperatures can reach up to 37 degrees celsius during the warmest part of the day. Overnight temperatures are unlikely to dip lower than 27 degrees so some visitors may find this a little uncomfortable. August is very humid, and the subtropical desert climate means rainfall during August is a rarity.
The warm August weather is a great time to enjoy Hurghada’s beaches - but be sure to wear sunscreen. With so many luxury resorts lining the Red Sea shoreline, many areas of the beach are private for hotel guests only, but there are still a large number of public beaches, but expect to pay a small supplement for access. The Elysees Beach is a popular spot and includes wifi access so sunbathers can check in with friends and family back home. Access to this beach costs £3 for the day.
For a true Egyptian-style evening, head to the Shisha Corner Bar at the Hilton Plaza. All tables hold a shisha water pipe, or hookah pipe, and the famous Egyptian Karkade hibiscus juice is served. The bar is situated on the Hilton’s private beach so offers superb views over the Red Sea.
Stay at the Mövenpick Resort with its own private marina for just £36 per night. Family rooms are ideal for larger parties and there’s plenty of on-site entertainment, activities, bars and restaurants. The spa is a great way to unwind after a busy day out in Hurghada and includes a sauna, jacuzzi, steam room and massage room.
