When to go to Sinai Peninsula
Sinai Peninsula is a year-round destination with hot and dry climate. The area has two main seasons, both of which are dry seasons, so this region receives very little precipitation. The high season is between March and November. Those travelers who don't like the heat should avoid summer months. The average air temperature in the winter (November to March) is about 20C/ 68F and in the summer (April to October) it is about 32C/89F. The water temperature stays within 21-30C/69-86F range. The visibility varies between 20-35m/65-114ft. The currents vary from gentle to moderate.
What to see
The Red Sea is known for its various underwater life, from tiny nudibranchs to the large fish. Among the local marine species divers can see crustaceans, starfish, green turtles, dugongs and dozens of species of reef fish. In deeper waters, sharks (including whale sharks in summer months), whales, dugongs, dolphins and barracudas can be encountered. The best time to watch eagle rays and turtles is from September to October. March-April is the time of the plankton bloom, which may slightly reduce visibility but attracts all kinds of interesting fish.
