Weather in Egypt in April
The weather in Egypt in April is often the best month of the year. It can vary like the UK and still be on the change but in general, the days are now much warmer than the winter months. Evenings are now warm and on most days it’s warm and sunny all day long. T-shirt and light trousers or skirt being the norm. You could wear shorts at this time of year and its perfectly Ok to wear not a lot when you’re out in the desert but when in Cairo and in the town in Siwa it is best to be covered from the below the elbows and knees. This is because it is a Muslim country and no one wears shorts unless they are tourists or a pretty young thing from Cairo who is out of town and wants to look like a tourist:) Women when swimming are recommended to wear a T-shirt but men ( remember I didn’t make up the rules) are OK to wear baggy swimming trunks. In general, April is very pleasant and one of the best months to visit Egypt and stay visit us here at the Siwa Villa. Anywhere in Europe, the weather can still be winter and warm sunny days are not guaranteed, the weather in Egypt in April is always sunny and warm.
