Weather Hazards

Although Shark's Bay is located on the Red Sea, it is also the desert. As there are many day trips available that go inland, there are some things to consider when in a desert climate. The first being that temperatures can get extremely hot, 40°C (105°F) and up in some cases. Choosing appropriate clothing as well as using a hat to protect you from the sun's rays is a must. The second is avoiding dehydration, always have access to water and do not wait until you feel thirsty to drink as your body needs water before thirst kicks in. Third, heat illnesses can occur so you should be alert of any of the following symptoms: clammy skin, headache, excessive sweating, dizziness and weakness. This can easily be avoided by staying hydrated and avoiding long periods in the sun. With the proper precautions and awareness, none of these should become a problem for your holiday, but it is always best to keep in mind for a worst-case scenario.
