Weather in Antalya

























Antalya weather – as delicious as a fresh plate of baklava!

Antalya, perched prettily on the south coast of Turkey, knows how to turn up the heat. From June to September, temperatures can sizzle upwards of 30°C. I'm talking perfect beach-bum weather. Imagine, golden sands, clear turquoise waters, and you soaking up the sun. Fabulous, isn't it?

But, the weather in Antalya isn't just a one-hit wonder. Enter spring (March to May) and autumn (October and November), when temperatures mellow to a pleasant 18-25°C. Ideal for exploring the charming old city, Kaleiçi, or taking a leisurely cruise along the stunning coast.

Even in winter (December to February), Antalya plays it cool with temperatures dropping to a comfortable 10-15°C. It's the perfect time for a Turkish tea break while exploring ancient Roman ruins.
