Temperatures are ramping up in Dubai, and for many, that means it’s time to get out the sunscreen, dust off the passport and plan a beach getaway.
Serving many summer locations, flydubai offers plenty of options to cool off, unwind and take a break. The options are incredibly varied and locations are widespread, with something for everyone.
Located in southwest Montenegro, this charming coastal town is one of the sunniest places in the Balkan region. Tivat has become renowned for several of its popular natural sights, including the magnificent sandy beach at Plavi Horizonti and the Sveti Marko island.

Beyond the beaches, ample cultural events also keep the city lively during the summer such as the “Bocce Olympiad” and “Summer Fest”.

A city that requires little introduction, thanks to the international fame it gained as a backdrop for popular Hollywood productions. Dubrovnik is well known for its ancient architecture and glistening limestone streets – a true slice of Croatian history. Beyond its cultural heritage, it’s also an ideal location to spend time swimming in the Adriatic Sea. Dubrovnik’s Banje Beach is the go-to beach for many due to its central location. For those wanting more tranquillity, the Elaphite archipelago is a quick ferry ride away, well known for its natural beauty and pebble beaches.

Mykonos and Santorini, Greece
Mykonos is popularly known for its summer parties and nightlife. The island is an idyllic paradise for swimming, sunbathing, beach resorts or water sports. Those seeking a bit more relaxation can find solace at Ornos and Platis Gialos which are more suitable for families and couples.
Since Santorini is a volcanic island, its red and black pebbled shores have drawn many in. Some say that this was the original home of the lost city of Atlantis, which long ago disappeared into the ocean’s depths. Whatever remains of this mythological metropolis is now guarded by iconic whitewashed houses and Santorini’s most famous beaches including Perissa, Kamari and Perivolos.

The Maldives boasts more than a thousand islands known for their clear emerald waters and luxurious overwater bungalows.
