Spring in Dubai

One of the best times to visit Dubai is by far the spring. Although you can also travel in autumn and winter, the season that is convenient to avoid is summer. Why? For the matter of the temperatures: the climate of Dubai is subtropical arid and so the thermometers in summer average 42 degrees during the day and do not go lower than 28 – 30 at night. During the summers in Dubai there is no respite, so spring is the opportunity you were waiting for if you want to explore this incredible city full of life.

In spring, the average temperature is around 25-30 degrees during the day and sometimes falls to 15 degrees. It is a good time if you want to take advantage of the wonderful beaches that this destination offers since the water is already hot (about 30 degrees) and there is not too many crowds of visitors. In addition, they are usually clean and well monitored, so you can go and spend the whole day enjoying the sun.

Beyond the weather, spring is an ideal time to enjoy Dubai because it is when more parties and events are organised, inside bars, restaurants and also outdoors. One of the most famous and celebrated examples of celebrations is Maifest (Oktoberfest in Dubai), which is celebrated in May with the whole German spirit of this traditional event but with the surprising contrast of being in the Arab Emirates.

Also in spring you can boast having gone to the mythical April Fair … in Dubai. One of the most famous Spanish corners of this capital, Casa de Tapas, is transformed and filled with colours as if it were Andalusia but in the middle of the desert.

The best areas

One of the most important places to visit in Dubai in spring is Dubai Creek, the great estuary that runs through the city for 10 kilometres and that with the sunlight is changing and changing at different times of the day. It is one of the most lively areas and with more touristic proposals, both to try local cuisine or to taste the best international dishes or to see an interesting show.

The Dubai Marina is the most exclusive and vibrant area of ​​this capital. A mishmash of impossible skyscrapers that reach up into the heavens and a network of streets that look to the sea. The majesty and opulence of its constructions is an architectural spectacle that, in addition, projects different colours and forms according to the position of the sun.

The beaches you should visit

Since you go in spring and the temperature will give you respite, you should not stop spending days to visit its beautiful beaches. Al Mamzar Beach Park is said to be one of the best, but there are also others like Jumeirah Beach Park (one of the closest to the city and with good services for the kids), Umm Suqeim Beach (overlooking the Burj Al Building Arab) and the Russian Beach, which is free to enter (and is the favorite for tourists who come to the city from Russia).
