Everything you need to know about visiting Abu Dhabi in June

Take me back to May | Jump forward to July

Abu Dhabi experiences very hot and sometimes humid weather in June. Life in Abu Dhabi very much heads indoors at this time of year, with outdoor experiences only really enjoyable in the early mornings and evenings.

That said, many visitors still love Abu Dhabi in June for its fabulous beach resorts at this time of year, enjoying them while they’re at their quietest (local schools are in session until the end of June!).

We are still updating this monthly guide to Abu Dhabi events for 2024 – dates and details below may still reference 2023

Typical Abu Dhabi Weather in June

Abu Dhabi’s average daytime maximum temperature in June is 36.7°C (98°F), with highs as much as 46.7°C (116°F) and average lows overnight of 30.5°C (86.9°F).

In June, you should expect sea temperatures of 31.6°C (88.9°F) on average. Minimum sea temperatures in June are 30.5°C (87.8°F) through to a bubbly warm maximum by month-end 32.7°c / 90°F – almost spa-like! Don’t worry, though; resorts will have chillers in their pools, so you can still take a refreshing dip.

Make no mistake, no matter what time of year you visit Abu Dhabi, you will still want a hat, sunscreen, and sunglasses – you can find our full packing list tips for Abu Dhabi here.

June is a quieter month for events in Abu Dhabi as many seasonal outdoor venues close or modify their offering in the hottest months of summer. Nonetheless, there’s still plenty happening indoors this June in Abu Dhabi!

Heritage Events

  • No UAE heritage events are scheduled for June 2024. Eid Al Adha is, however, set to fall from 16-18 June 2024, which is sure to bring some traditional performances and activities throughout the city. 

Live Music, Theatre and Comedy

  • Legendary rock band Guns N’ Roses kick off the month at the Etihad Arena with their first show in the UAE since 2017. Tickets for 1st of June are still available, click here for more information.

Suggested Abu Dhabi Activities in June 2024

Besides the beach weather, June is the perfect month to explore Abu Dhabi’s top indoor attractions.

  • The Louvre Abu Dhabi is vastly indoors (and even a little chilly inside!), so it makes a great June activity.
  • Tour inside the city’s incredible Qasr al Watan, the Presidential Palace, before making your way to afternoon tea at either Emirates Palace or Observation 300 at Conrad Hotel, Etihad Towers.
  • Enjoy indoor thrills and spills aplenty on Yas Island. Thrill-seekers will love taking on the world’s fastest roller coaster in the world at Ferrari World or try your hand at indoor SkyDiving next door at CLYMB Abu Dhabi.
  • Newly opened, SeaWorld Abu Dhabi – housing the world’s largest aquarium – makes a unique addition to Abu Dhabi’s theme park lineup.
  • The Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque is open throughout the year and can still be visited in summer, but be prepared as a lot of your tour is outside, partially shaded.
  • In the evening, visit Yas Bay. Indoor dining is available, but if it’s not too sticky and humid, restaurants are keeping their al fresco dining areas open after dark.

Day Trips From Abu Dhabi in June 2024

This is a great time of year for exploring some of Dubai’s indoor attractions on a day trip.

If you only have one day, you may not have time to queue for the Burj Khalifa, but the Dubai Frame makes an excellent alternative Dubai viewing spot. We’d also suggest, on a Dubai itinerary this summer, enjoying the best of indoor attractions:

Abu Dhabi With Kids in June 2024

This is the perfect time of year to take on the Yas Island trio of theme parks.

You can start your day at Yas Waterworld, then continue to cool off indoors at neighbouring Warner Bros World Abu Dhabi. Finish your evening over at Ferrari World and Yas Mall where there are plenty of family dining options.

Cool off at Yas Waterworld to tackle the summer heat in June

While it’s not impossible to be outside in June, bear in mind that surfaces can be scorching, even into the evening. Take care before venturing near playground equipment, and keep beach shoes on little one’s feet, sunscreen, and hats.

  • A great fun option you can try in the hotter summer months is Yas Waterworld summer nights, held every Saturday night over the summer until 10:00 PM.
  • A nice place to cool off at the end of the day is the city’s famous Umm al Emarat Park, it stays open until late in the evening (entry is 10AED per person), and kids can cool off in the splash park and wadis.
  • Another popular new evening spot for families is Al Mamsha on Al Hudayriat Island. Here, you’ll find a skate park, splash park, heritage trail and a great range of al fresco dining options.

Our best recommendation when travelling with kids to Abu Dhabi in summer is to stay at one of the city’s best beachfront hotels so kids can enjoy a splash as part of your stay; top recommendations include:
