March is a pleasant time to visit Marsa Alam, with average daily temperatures of between 16 and 24C, ten hours of sunshine every day and barely any rainfall. The average sea temperature for March is approximately 23C, suitably warm for extended periods of both scuba diving and swimming. Visiting Marsa Alam in March is therefore an excellent way to start an Easter holiday for the entire family.
When visiting in March, it is still worth packing warm clothing as the temperature in the evening can become quite chilly. Sunbathing next to the sea can also attract something of a wind chill factor, making the effects of the strong sun less apparent and increasing the risk of inadvertently burning.
