Take a Beaches Break : For many visitors, a UAE vacation centres around the beach.
Late October to May, while temperatures plummet over Europe and North America, is high season here as the UAE’s punishing summer heat gives way to winter’s beaches weather.
Dubai and Abu Dhabi are the more obvious beach choices, offering city sightseeing, shopping, and theme parks in easy reach of the sand.
For sun-and-sand vacations in Dubai, luxury resorts are focused along the coast west of the central city. In particular, the beach around Jumeirah and Dubai Marina offer plenty of family-oriented, five star resorts dedicated to beaches time.
Abu Dhabi’s luxury resorts rim the shoreline of the city’s various islands, so resort areas are more scattered across the city than in Dubai. Saadiyat Island, Marina Breakwater, and Khor Al Maqta are the areas offering some of the best beach-focused resorts in town.

Away from these two destinations, though, there are more beaches options.
The beach resorts of Ras Al-Khaimah and Ajman in particular are favourite city getaways, while on the UAE’s eastern coast, Al Aqah beach in the Emirate of Fujairah is a popular option for beach-goers who want to head away from the crowds.
