The land of Egypt is steeped in an amazing ancient history. It is the land of pyramids, Pharaohs, relics and tombs, just waiting to be explored. Just beyond the city of Cairo are the Great Pyramids and the Sphinx and in the north of the country is the spectacular Valley of the Kings, which was the burial place of the Pharaoh Tutankhamen. The remarkable twin temples of Abu Simbel are in the south and of course your stay at Sharks Bay could be complemented with a memorable trip up the River Nile.
The best time to visit Sharks Bay is April or November as the weather is perfect, with the air temperature averaging 28C and the water temperature averaging 23C. But even in January/February you can swim, snorkel or dive so you can enjoy Red Sea all year round. Although the average temperature in the colder months is only 21C, there are many more days with much higher temperatures even in the winter months.
