Rest in the UAE in August
In August in the Emirates, you can buy an inexpensive tour, but is it worth it to rest in the UAE in late summer? Find out what reviews leave tourists about the weather and the sea. Where to rest on a budget and whether to take children to the trip.
To understand how strong the heat in the Arab Emirates in the low season, just look at the thermometer. The maximum recorded temperature in the UAE in August is +50.5°C. Usually it’s always above +40°C by midday. Even in cooler Fujairah it’s +36°C. Don’t expect it to change after sunset! In the evening the thermometer will only drop to +33 ° C.
The desert winds blow dry in August and so the humidity is lower. In Fujairah it’s 75% and in Dubai and Abu Dhabi it’s 60%. It doesn’t feel like a steam bath anymore.
Because of the heat there are not many people on the streets. If you need to get somewhere, tourists and locals do not walk, but get to the place by cab, rented cars or public transport.
Air temperature during the day and night in August:
|Resort||t during the day||t water|
|Ras Al Khaimah||+40°С||+33°С|
Olga: We stayed in Dubai in August. The climate at this time is hot and the heat is so hot that it takes your breath away.
Bibip: “I felt really good in the mall, but it was so hot outside.
The water in the Gulf of Oman warms up to +25. +26 °С, and in the Persian Gulf – up to +32. +33°С. There is no way to freshen up! Some tourists swimming in overheated salt water gives unnecessary stress on the heart, and the blood pressure rises from it.
Before you go to the UAE in August 2022, look for a hotel with a pool with cooled water. Water treatments at +24. +25 ° C is much healthier!
Regina Kowalczyk: “I managed to swim a couple of times in the bay, but the water was so warm (+33 ° C) that swimming was no fun. It was terribly hot. Fortunately, the hotel had a pool with cooling water.
It seems to me: “My slippers were sticking to the asphalt, no joke. In the sea, I had immediate pressure, after 2 minutes of being there. I jumped out, it was very scary. And I’m the healthiest person myself, I never have that.”

How to dress for the weather
Closet selection for a holiday in the UAE in August has its own peculiarities. In the Arab country, a strong Muslim tradition. For public places, choose clothing that covers the knees and shoulders. Long pants and dresses are more practical than shorts and light tops, as closed clothes do not get burnt in the sun.
In August, the sand on the beaches is hot. Put beach shoes in your luggage. Do not forget a light hat and sunscreen. The malls, under air conditioning, are chilly. Take with you a light sweatshirt or sweatshirt.
Nadezhda Kotlyar: “Dubai is a Muslim city, so it’s better to take restrained outfits on vacation. You can easily visit the beach area in swimsuits, shorts, T-shirts. In the city, on the other hand, it’s better not to put your shoulders and legs out in the open.
Precipitation and hurricanes
The weather in August in the UAE has an undeniable advantage – it is 100% predictable. You will have absolutely cloudless skies. There are no rains, sandstorms and hurricanes.
However, because of the high temperature and active sun a high probability to get heat stroke and burn a lot. So August in the Emirates is not the best time for a beach holiday! In addition, the transition from the hot street under the air conditioning and back can lead to a runny nose and colds.
