Best Time To Travel To Eritrea
Eritrea has three different climates in different regions, one climate on the Red Sea in the coastal region, the central highlands, and the western lowlands. The climate in the mountains is not too hot, where Asmara, the capital is located in the central highlands and where it’s mild in temperature year-round.
The coastal temperatures change throughout the year with rainy bouts during June and July, as well as November to February. It can get unbearably hot from June to September, it’s best not to visit during this time. In the western lowlands, the stifling heat happens around April to June and has rainy bouts like the central highlands. Eritrea can be visited year-round, but choose your destination in the country wisely depending on the time of year. If you’re too hot, visit the mountains, if you’re too chilled, go lay on the beaches of the Red Sea or visit an island off the coast.
