Oea has a hot desert climate, influenced by the seas it is at, with hot dry summers and almost rainless winters.

Military: Embarkation Point Oea
Embarkation Point Oea is an installation by the Sultanate's Armed Forces, used to embark troops on transports and Amphibious Operations Vessels. With parts of the Army's Special Forces having their home garrisons in Oea, in particular No. 12 Long-Range Fighter Group's 38th Long-Range Fighter Wing and the 21st Reconnaissance Wing, as well as the 4th Mechanized Brigade, this post is necessary. Embarkation Point Oea is also used as a port by the RKCG, in particular as homeport of Mobile Unit 1 and a few smaller vessels.
The RKN has no station in Oea, but Oea Harbour is a regular destination for good will visits of training ships and a solid part in the travel itinerary of the Labiwa. A small shore staff tends to these arrivals.
