Weather in Egypt in June 2024: Travel Tips for First-Timers

By Margaux | Updated Dec. 28, 2022

June is summer in Egypt, and you'll be able to see this from the increase in temperatures throughout the country. Because of this, we do not recommend visiting some of the warmer cities in Egypt during this time of the year, unless you know you really don't mind the heat.

For Egypt's beach destinations, however, June isn't necessarily a bad time of the year to visit, with fewer crowds, cheaper accommodation, and guaranteed great weather to swim in the Red Sea and go snorkeling or diving.

Egypt Regional Weather in June

June is one of the totally dry months in Egypt, with an average of 0 mm of rainfall throughout the country.

All of your days will be warm (or very hot), with sunny weather and clear blue skies, making it a perfect time of year to head to the beach.

Location Min. Temp. Max. Temp. Rainfall
Alexandria 21°C (70°F) 29°C (84°F) 0 mm
Cairo (and Giza) 21°C (70°F) 35°C (95°F) 0 mm
Luxor 24°C (75°F) 41°C (105°F) 0 mm
Aswan 27°C (80°F) 42°C (107°F) 0 mm
Hurghada 26°C (79°F) 36°C (96°F) 0 mm
Sharm el-Sheikh (and Dahab) 27°C (80°F) 37°C (99°F) 0 mm

In terms of temperatures, you are looking at higher temperatures in June, which is the start of summer in Egypt. Especially in the cities of Luxor and Aswan, you can expect a highs of around 41°C (105°F). For this reason, we do not recommend visiting Luxor or Aswan in the summer in Egypt, as the higher temperatures make sightseeing less pleasant, unless you are used to this type of weather.

For the beachside cities of Hurghada and Sharm el-Sheikh, temperatures are not quite as high as Luxor or Aswan, hitting a high of 36°C (96°F) and 37°C (99°F). This makes for great beach weather, so if you're just visiting Egypt for those warm summer days on the beach, June might be a good time of year to consider.

Best Places to Visit in Egypt in June

Best Places to Visit in Egypt in June

1. Cairo and Giza (and Alexandria)

If you are going to visit Egypt, Cairo is a must see on your trip. Cairo's proximity to Giza means you'll be able to visit Egypt's capital and the Pyramids of Giza in around two days. Setting off early for sightseeing means you'll be able to beat the heat, and why not visit the inside of one of Giza's pyramids for some respite from the heat?

Alexandria, only about 3 hours from Cairo, has the most comfortable temperatures in Egypt in June, and it would be worth a visit if you are interested in the city's historical heritage. Alexandria National Museum is recommended.

3. Dahab

Also located on Egypt's beautiful Red Sea coastline, Dahab is known for both being a great spot to hike Mount Sinai from, as well as being in close proximity to the Siwa Oasis. While this will be warm in June, the fact that Dahab is right by the sea means you'll be able to cool down in the water shortly after your adventures.

This combination of landscapes makes Dahab an interesting and must-see destination in Egypt for those looking to see the mountains, desert and the sea!

Crowds and Cost

June is typically not one of the more popular months to visit Egypt, which also means that crowds are slightly less and prices are lower throughout the country.

You can expect to pay less both for your flights as well as your accommodation in Egypt at this time of the year, and there will likely be fewer tourist groups at the big sights such as the Pyramids of Giza. However, with them being some of the most popular destinations in the entire world, there will still always be some crowds there, regardless of the time of year and the temperature.

What to Wear in Egypt in June

During your visit to Egypt in June, we recommend wearing more natural materials and fewer synthetic materials to keep cool. Something like long linen trousers and cotton lightweight shirts, or a longer dress, are a good option for your time in Egypt.

Although temperatures are high, Egyptians dress on the conservative side and you'll be expected to cover your knees and shoulders to show respect, especially for women visiting Egypt. If you are only going to a beach resort, you are not expected to dress as conservatively, as hotel beaches are more relaxed in their expectations. (How to Dress Properly in Egypt)

Lighter colors are also recommended over darker colors on sunny days, and it's a good idea to bring a hat and sunscreen, as well as sunglasses. If you're planning on walking around a lot, wearing supportive trainers is preferable over flip flops, regardless of the heat, as many of the tourist sights are dusty and require a bit of walking.

You can get more information about what to wear in Egypt depending on where and when you are going here, as the customs in Egypt are slightly different to what you might be used to at home.
