When Is The Best Time To Visit?

Kalkan is one of the warmest locations on the southern coast in summer and mildest in winter. March and April can be great months to explore the area, with cooler daytime temperatures around 19-20 degrees sometimes accompanied by a short springtime shower. At this time of year, the mountains are lush with springtime flowers, just perfect for walking holidays or getting around the historical sites that are on the doorstep. 

With May comes the start of summer and temperatures slowly start to rise through the 20s to reach 29/30 degrees by the start of June. Summer temperatures generally peak from the middle of July to the end of August when they can reach well into the 30s. 

September’s weather is very similar to that of June and October’s weather again is very similar to that of May. 

The sea and pools however are generally warmer in the Summer and Autumn rather than in the spring. 

During the winter months of November through to March, the weather can still have good periods. In particular, November and December can see daytime temperatures in the 20s, and with the water in the sea still warm after the summer months, this is a great time to go swimming. 

The wettest period is usually January into mid-February when heavy but short-lived rain storms can be expected. The main tourist season is from the beginning of May through to the end of October. If you visit outside these months you may find a more limited range of shops and restaurants open and some facilities like the beach clubs closed. We suggest you ask the rental owner you are dealing with to give you more information about what is available around their property.
