WHEN TO GO
Beach-friendly temperatures are par for the course in Turkey. Whichever part of the country you’re visiting, expect things to start hotting up around Easter – temperatures in the early 20s are common as early as April. By July, they’ve crept up to the 30°C mark – and they’ll often climb even higher. Plus, the summer months pack in a whopping 12 hours of sun a day. If you prefer things a bit cooler, autumn temperatures usually hover in the mid to high 20s, and there are still plenty of blue-sky days. Even in winter, you won’t need a hat and scarf – in Antalya, average temperatures are between 15 and 20°C. Expect a bit more rain at this time, though.
