Dahab is surrounded by mountains and desert therefore the climate is dry, except for the occasional downpour in the winter months which often proves to be more of a novelty than an inconvenience! The temperatures during the summer months can reach as high as 45C!
Dahab is blessed with a cool onshore breeze, which makes the temperature much more bearable than other Sinai towns like Sharm-el-Sheikh.
The water temperature is constantly 20-26*C, and very seldom drops below 22*C, with February being the lowest and August the highest months. When wondering what wet suit to bring out with you we suggest about a 3mm wetsuits in the summer months and up to 5mm wetsuit in the winter. It is the wind following the dives that can cool people rapidly so it is recommended you bring a warm fleece or top for after the dive.
Whatever the time of year remember to pack the essentials - sunglasses, sun block (high factor) and lip salve, mosquito repellent, re-hydration tablets, small torch, light casual clothing, warm clothing for winter evenings and a small first aid kit.
Please remember that the predominant religion is Muslim and therefore remember to dress conservatively away from the beach areas and despite soaring temperatures it is advisable to keep covered to prevent harmful sunburn.
