What's the weather like in Marsa Alam in March?


Even though it is still only March, clearly summer in Marsa Alam is just around the corner as the average maximum temperature may peak to 27°C in the afternoon. During the night, the mercury drops to a low of 16°C, which is pretty much the perfect nighttime temperature. Both the average high and the average low temperatures increase by about three degrees in the course of the month. The daily average temperature in March is 22°C, three degrees higher than it was in February, but still three degrees lower than it will be in April.

Sea Temperature

Just like it has been in January and February, the sea temperature averages 23°C this month. This is as low as the temperature of the Red Sea ever getswimming is comfortable all-year round. March is also the last month of the winter season, or the colder half of the year, and the seas will now start to calm down, slowly opening up opportunities for diving.


The rainfall conditions are the same as they were in February, meaning that there is no precipitation to speak of in March. The total amount of rainfall is a mere 1mm, which essentially equals nothing. There are also no days with precipitation this month.


Marsa Alam must be one of the sunniest places on the planet. There is virtually no cloud coverhe cloud cover decreases from 24% to 19% in the course of the month. This means that the skies in March are either clear or mostly clear and that they are never overcast or even partly cloudy. This results in an average of 11 sunshine hours per dayhe same number is recorded in February, April and October as well.

In March, the days gradually get longer. March 1 is the shortest day of the month and has 11.39 hours of daylight, while March 31 is the longest day with 12.24 daylight hours.

Hotels in Marsa Alam in March

Sheraton Luxor Resort

While in Luxor (see the things to do below), book your stay at the luxurious Sheraton Luxor Resort for a relatively cheap price this time of year. This 4.5-star resort claims to offer the most extensive panoramic view of the Nile in all Luxor. And the view is great indeed! The resort boasts a fantastic location on the eastern bank of the Nile and lies within walking distance from the city centre. It features a pool with sun terraces, three restaurants, two bars and numerous other amenities and services. This is the perfect place to spend a night or two on a trip from Marsa Alam. Luxor, nicknamed 'Thebes of the Golden Gates' by Greek poet Homer, is one of the world's most magnificent open-air museums, home to the extraordinary Valley of the Kings and the tomb of Tutankhamun.

Beaches in Marsa Alam in March

The town of Marsa Alam itself doesn't really have much to offer. It is the beaches, the sea and the inland desert landscapes that attract all tourists. The coast that stretches out to the north and the south of the town is lined with many luxury beach resorts, many of which claim a section of the beach for themselves. A stay at pretty much any resort near Marsa Alam will include easy access to a sand beach and the warm Red Sea. The weather is sunny, dry and warm all-year round, so make sure to bring plenty of sun cream, a hat and beachwear because you'll spend a good chunk of your time sunbathing and swimming!

Bars and Restaurants

Jaz Dar El Madina Resort

If you're after a great meal after a fun-filled day on the beach and in or on the Red Sea, go and take a look at the Sofra Restaurant, a dining venue in the Jaz Dar El Madina Resort serving typical oriental food. If you're in the mood for something else, the resort has a number of other restaurants too, offering all kinds of food.

Things to do in Marsa Alam in March

Mons Claudianus

A trip to Marsa Alam will not be complete without a visit to Mons Claudianus. Prisoners of the Roman Empire used to mine the mountains for black quartz diorite that they used as building materials throughout the Roman Empire. Still visible in the area are remnants of the Roman Penal Colony established there, including their stable, workshops and apartments, and the steam baths. In fact, the hot springs are still there up to this day.

Aquatico Water Park

The seas are still not ideal for diving, so you might as well look for some fun aside from swimming in some of the beautiful beaches in Egypt. The Aquatico Water Park in Marsa Alam is located 38 kilometres from the International Airport. The kids and even you will surely love and enjoy the Tsunami Slide, Multislide, Free Fall Slide and the Giant Slides. They have huge swimming pools as well, while comfy sun beds are sprawled all over the area.

Royal Valley Golf Club & Valley of the Kings      

Another fun activity for landlubbers to enjoy is a round of golf at the Royal Valley Golf Club in Luxor.  Luxor is a city in Egypt located about 4 hours away from Marsa Alam. The Royal Valley Golf Club is an 18-hole championship course designed by world renowned architect Arthur Davis. Do not fret about not having your golf clubs with you for the club has some for rent. Make sure to spend an extra day in Luxor to explore the pyramids and all other ancient monuments that dot the Valley of the Kings.
