Weather Averages for dubai in August
Averages for dubai in August
Dubai, located in the Arabian Desert on the Persian Gulf Coast, experiences year round warm and dry weather, with the summer months being particularly hot and windy. This desert climate, as well as the stunning beaches and blue seas, is a major selling point for the emirate.
August is one of the two hottest
months in Dubai, and temperatures above 40 degrees Celsius are considered
normal. Visitors at this time of year are unlikely to see temperatures dip much
below the 30 degree mark. There is practically no rainfall during August, and
the humidity and UV levels are extreme.
August sees the highest water temperatures of the year at a warm 33 degrees Celsius on average, so this is the perfect month to hit the beach and have a dip in the sea. One of the best beaches in Dubai is the Jumeirah Public Beach. There is no better beach for those who want to sunbathe in a large, clean, open area, but those who are after spectacular views across the sea may be disappointed by obstructions from nearby skyscrapers and cruise liners.
Just down the coast from Jumeirah Beach is the Wild Wadi water park. This Arabian-themed venue boasts many rides and adventures including Breaker’s Bay, the largest wave pool in the Middle East and Wipeout Flowrider which is the first artificial barrelling wave in the world.
While swimming costumes are perfectly acceptable to wear on the beach and in the water park, it is important to respect the Middle Eastern culture. It is therefore best to avoid skimpy bikinis or going topless.
Finish the day with a Philippines-inspired buffet at the Fiestang Pinoy Restaurant located in the Landmark Grand Hotel. Rooms here cost just £55 per night including access to the gym, jacuzzi and on-site swimming pool, as well as airport and beach transfers.
