Dubai Offers Calmer Seas
Few things are more enjoyable than a vacation in a coastal city with warm, clear waters and white sand beaches. In the last few years, though, some people have begun to be wary of such travel destinations, worried about severe weather. Tsunamis and hurricanes have killed countless people and wiped out five-star resorts, leaving some in terror of placing themselves in such a vulnerable position has a holiday at a foreign beach appears to involve.
If you are one of those who would like to enjoy a tropical vacation but who cannot forget the images of disaster, you should consider Dubai. Dubai, one of the United Arab Emirates, is located on the south side of the Persian Gulf, and the north of the Arabian Peninsula. This means that they are in a protected position– the peninsula is a very effective barrier to any truly extreme weather. They do get storms on occasion, but nothing that would be considered dangerous. You can rent a holiday apartment in Dubai and enjoy their weather, water and beaches without concern. Many rental apartments command a view of ocean and even have beach front access to satisfy you desire for the ocean to its fullest extent.
