Sharm in December


I am looking into my December holiday and am thinking of going to Sharm.

How is Sharm in December? Sites say average temps are 21-25, but does it feel hotter? what is the sea like this time of year?

Any info would be appreciated.

Those temps are in the shade. It's a nice time of year to visit, even though the sunbathing hours are 8.30-4pm (dark by 5.30-6pm). We always find it hot enough. There are plenty of people in the sea too.

offical temps are taken at midday in the shade 6 ft off the ground to minimise reflected heat.last year in early december it reached 78 to 80 most days around the pool in the sun,did drop off quick after 4.00pm

We are all different, so hard to advise but.. I've been to Sharm at virtually every time of year. December is lovely during the day 23/25 degrees but the temperature does drop to 12/15 degrees at night. That sounds lovely (for the UK) but it feels colder when it's been so warm during the day. Take a cardi/fleece & long linen trousers to save feeling the drop off. Sea temp mid/high teens so still nice for diving/snorkelling (though might want a short suit if you're prone to the cold).
