Dubai is a popular winter sun destination

Though the daily average temperature is still 30°C in October, Dubai starts to cool down in November. By December, temperatures in the city sit comfortably around 20°C and the sea remains warm. After the New Year, things start heating up. With its comfortable climate, March is a particularly lovely month to visit the city: temperatures begin to increase, while the humidity remains low.

Have you considered visiting Dubai in summer?

You'll save money on your Dubai summer holiday, as this is low season for tourists. Whilst it’s true that in summer Dubai sees temperatures soar skyscraper-high, you’ll actually find that the city is well prepared for the heat. Sunset is the ideal time for a beach stroll and a dip in the warm sea. Plus, whatever the season, the desert is always cool at night.
