Dubai is considered one of the best locations globally for water sports due to its prominent landmarks on and by the ocean, white sandy beaches, and beautiful blue seas. You can enjoy jetskiing in Dubai without worrying about rough currents or waves. However, a significant drawback of the location is that it can get strikingly warm.
Due to the desert climate, the city is exposed to substantial amounts of sunshine. While this means you can enjoy uninterrupted time out on the ocean, your skin will be at risk of sunburns and sun damage. Therefore, to have a great time doing water sports in Dubai, you need to be equipped with brilliant sunscreen.
