November to March is peak season in Dubai, with moderate temperatures meaning the opportunity to be outside, there are major festivals and sporting events on at this time and room rates will be at a premium. May to March brings hot weather, good for beach breaks and desert camping. From June to September the weather is hot and humid, hotel rates are at their lowest and it’s a great time for diving.
