WHICH IS THE BEST MONTH TO VISIT DUBAI?

Which is the best month to visit Dubai?


  • The best months to visit Dubai are: November, December, January, February and March. Better to go to Dubai in the winter months as the summer months are definitely too hot with high humidity levels. 
The temperatures are mild in winter: an average of 24' C degrees. Rainfall are rares.

Which is the best month to visit Dubai? 

When is the worst time to visit Dubai

For me the worst month to go to Dubai is August as in this month you can reach very high temperatures, even above 50 degrees and with a high humidity. Personally I could not enjoy my holiday in such an inhospitable temperature even if in Dubai everything is air conditioned, bus stops included.

What is the cheapest month to travel to Dubai?

The summer months are considered high season starting from May: one of the most expensive month to make your holiday in Dubai. January is the cheapest month and, in my opinion, the best one to make the holidays in Dubai having optimal temperatures.

Is Dubai a good place to vacation?

Dubai is a fascinating destination: you can see skyscrapers, original lush buildings, beaches, artificial islands... there is something for everyone whether you go to Dubai for work, for expo 2020 or for a beach winter holiday.

How many days are enough to visit Dubai?

I would suggest you to stay in Dubai at least 10 days. You could stay here for more than a month and never get bored. There are many things to see, many neighborhoods, attractions, imposing buildings, shopping malls like you've never seen, activities or relax in the beach.

Where do tourists stay in Dubai?

Dubai can be divided into different areas and the best place to stay can be found starting from your needs: if you prefer to stay close to the sea, to the city or to the expo, if you want a luxury or cheaper accommodation.

👉 The cheapest accommodation in Dubai is in the area call: Al Barsha useful for business trips too.

👉 If you are looking for a place to stay in Dubai for Expo 2020 stay near Al Maktoum International Airport in Aloft Dubai South a short spin away from the Expo 2020 site.

👉 The area where I recommend staying in Dubai for beach holiday is Jumeirah beach.

👉 If you want to go shopping in Dubai, stay in the Downtown Dubai area. Here is also the largest shopping center in the world: the Dubai Mall and Burj Khalifa - the tallest tower in the world. 

Booking.com Well, I hope I helped you choose the best month to visit Dubai. I am sure you will be fascinated by this city of many facets and opportunities.

BEST PLACE TO STAY IN FORMENTERA

Best places to stay in Formentera:

  • Es Pujols
  • Platja Migjorn
  • La Mola
  • La Savina
  • San Ferrán de ses Roques
  • Es Caló de Sant Agustí
  • Cala Saona

Best area to stay in Formentera

WHERE TO STAY IN FORMENTERA


The area in which I recommend staying in Formentera is Es Pujols which is the liveliest area, with beautiful beaches, bars and restaurants by the sea. And it is the area favored by the Vips (sockplayers, soubrette ...).

HOLIDAYS in FORMENTERA do it yourself

- 3 steps to organize the trip -

☑️ Formentera does NOT have an airport that can be reached by ferry. The easiest way is to fly with Ryanair to Ibiza.
☑️ From the port of Ibiza you can reach Formentera by hydrofoil or ferry.
☑️ Book a hotel or apartment on Booking. If you do not see the map with the prices of the various structures, refresh the page and / or enter the relevant date. 👇 Prices are per accommodation and not per person.

BEST PLACES TO STAY IN FORMENTERA


  • Es Pujols


Formentera is a wild island completely different from the neighboring Ibiza. If you want to stay "out of the world" for a few days laying down in one of the beautiful beaches that surround the island, Formentera is the place for you.

BUT if you want to stay in a touristic place in Formentera in which there are shops, restaurants, bars, nightclubs... look for an accommodation in Es Pujols.

In this village the evenings are lively, it is the most frequented place on the island, there are many tourists.
I recommend Es Pujols to those who do NOT want to be too secluded.
Favorite area for VIPs (footballers and celebrities): you can find them in June, hardly in August, when there is the peak of the flow of tourists.

The Balearic Islands are not an economic destination in the summer months especially in Es Pujols you risk not to find anything, if you don't book early.

Es Pujols is close to the 2 most popular beaches of the island that extend into this isthmus (they are really suggestive):

  • Platja de Llevant, 
  • Playa de Illetas

Platja de Llevant, Playa de illetas
Best beaches in Formentera

If you want to stay near this area/beach, I suggest:

👉 Hotel Rosamar Playa de Llevant




  • Platja Migjorn (Playa Mitjorn)


I stayed in this part of the island on my first trip to Formentera, so many years ago in June.

This photo of Migjorn is offered by TripAdvisor

This part of the island is more windy and has consequently the rough sea than the other shore. There wasn't much to do in June. The area is quieter than Es Pujols.
From this beach you can see a beautiful sunset: one of the most beautiful I've ever seen. Photos do not make the idea.

This photo of Playa de Migjorn is courtesy of TripAdvisor

In Migjorn there is a wide beach, as you can see in the picture. Since the area is "fresher" it is recommended to stay here in the hottest periods: late July - mid-August.

👉 This guest house is just 300 m from the Migjorn beach.


  • La Savina

Small village where ferries dock. In this place there is the tourist office so I advise you to go there to get the map of the island and some brochures.

This photo of La Savina is offered by TripAdvisor


Ideal place for those who want to stay in a quieter and economic area compared to Es Pujols but easily reach, by bus, car or scooter.

If you want to stay near La Savina it is best to look for accommodation that faces the Estany des Peix lagoon.
The suggested residence has a beautiful location overlooking the lagoon from which you can watch the sunset.

👉 Lago Dorado Residence


  • San Ferrán de ses Roques


This village does not overlook the sea but is a place in the hinterland of Formentera and I recommend it to those who want to take a touring vacation. Considering that the island is narrow, when I say "inland", It means that Playa de ses Illetes and La Savina are about 5 kilometers away.

This area is a good starting point to visit the whole island and the prices are lower than accommodation in the tourist areas. For some it may be a good compromise.
Evenings can be spent in the downtown: there are several restaurants with a nice atmosphere.

  • Es Caló de Sant Agustí


Here we are on the northern side of the island. The area is wilder, the accommodation are holiday apartments rather then hotel. The beach is "wild" as you can see in the picture.

The sea of ​​Formentera is something spectacular: a succession of isthmuses and coves where it is really impossible not to dip.

  • Cala Saona

Cala Saona is a beautiful conca beach. An isolated cove which is accessed from a road shaded by the surrounding vegetation.

Cala Saona, Formentera

If your ideal holiday is a secluded place in the midst of nature where you can see romantic sunsets, I suggest you this hotel located a few meters from this beautiful beach of Formentera.

👉 Hotel Cala Saona



What to do in Formentera?


- Sunbathe on the beach,
- Diving,
- Visiting the wild island to discover coves, villages...
- Espalmador boat ride: private island near Formentera (crystal clear water).

This photo of Es Espalmador is offered by TripAdvisor

- Pilar del Mola: lighthouse with panoramic view
- Cap de Barbaria (lighthouse)

what to see formentera

- Calo Des Mort: Tropical sandy beach. Beach bordered by rocky cliffs, with clear water, fine sand and panoramic view.
- Camí de Sa pujada: trekking! Following this ancient Roman road, you will see a breathtaking panorama.

Calo des Mort

Getting around the island


The ferry that departs from Ibiza will head to La Savina. As all the tourists disembark here, you will find numerous rental agencies for scooters, bicycles... And also the bus that takes you to the main tourist resorts.

Curiosity:

Formentera owes its name to the Romans who named it Fromentaria which means the island of wheat.
The island is flat, without mountains with salt marshes, vegetation and inlets.
