Soak up Turkey's Mediterranean climate

Turkey’s Mediterranean climate makes it the perfect destination for a summer beach, activity and watersports holiday. Late spring and early autumn are a wonderful time of year to visit, soak up warm, dry days and pleasant evenings and with the added advantage of the resorts being a little quieter too. July and August brings long hours of sunshine, it is hotter and more humid so you’ll appreciate the beautiful sea breezes coming off the Mediterranean and love the balmy evenings.
