Averages for Red sea in March

In Egypt, March is a winter month, but the weather has nothing to do with the cold season. The average temperature is 23⁰C and can even get to 28⁰C. The air temperature at night is 19⁰C. This area enjoys 9 hours of sunshine, which is more than enough for those who come to Egypt to soak up in the sun. The sea water is warm, its temperature getting up to 20⁰C. Hence, the water is perfect for water sports like diving or swimming. Also, the wind speed in March is 24 km/h. During this month, there is very little rain and the humidity levels are quite low.
For seafront accommodation, people could choose the Kempinski Hotel Soma Bay. It’s located in Hurghada and overlooks the finest beaches in Soma Bay. It includes massage facilities, a hot tub and spa, various gardens and a couple of swimming pools. The rooms benefit from incredible views and they have a deluxe bath and a seating area. This resort also comes with 3 gourmet restaurants.
Those who don’t want to eat at the hotel’s restaurant can choose another eatery. For example, they can go for Chez Pascal, also situated in Hurghada. This bistro is charming and has a European style. It features clean surroundings and eclectic cuisine, and it serves one of the best Turkish coffees in the region.
Those who are travelling to Egypt in March must not miss the Easter celebrations. This event is important for the Coptic Christian population in Egypt. It is celebrated with formal and long services in the church. The next day after Easter represents the beginning of Sharm El Nesseem or the harvest season. On this day, the locals offer salted fish, lettuce and onion to the most important Egyptian deities.
