United Arab Emirates weather overview

The seven Sheikdoms which comprise the United Arab Emirates lie on the southern coastline of the Arabian Gulf. Much of the UAE consists of barren, rocky desert and unless you would enjoy living in a sauna, you should avoid visiting between mid- May and September. At this time, the fierce sun is at its most unforgiving and there is a serious risk of heatstroke for the unwary, particularly on the coast.

During the rest of the year, a visit to the UAE can be a great pleasure: from mid-October to April, the climate is warm and sunny with sparse and sporadic rainfall.

What to pack for United Arab Emirates weather

Take light clothes, whatever the time of year, and warmer wraps to combat the winter weather, summer air-conditioning and evenings in the inland desert which can grow chilly.
