In Turkey, two large groups of resorts, the weather in these resorts is different. The first group of resorts is located on the Mediterranean Sea, the main city of this group is Antalya. The second group, led by the city of Izmir, is located on the coast of the Aegean Sea.
We will start with Mediterranean resorts . The beach season in Antalya, Belek, Alanya and Kemer begins in June and ends in October. Already in early October, hotels are starting to empty, but this time has its undeniable advantages.
In October, the sea is still warm, the air temperature is no longer exhausting, but warm, and the beaches of the hotels are already free, there are no problems with sun loungers or crowds of tourists. Souvenirs in October are ready to give for almost any price, a paradise for lovers to bargain.
In October, the delicious Turkish pomegranates ripen, and pomegranate juice, sweet and freshly squeezed, can be bought for only one dollar, or even cheaper. With him, pomegranate juice in cans can never be compared, which can be bought in our stores.
Contrary to the views of many Russians, the weather in Turkey is not so hot throughout the year. For example, in the photo above you see bananas that grow in Turkey, but, unfortunately, they do not ripen there, not such a hot country. These bananas are simply decorative. Also in Antalya you can often see palm trees, which usually do not grow here either, they are imported, and for the winter the Turks have to insulate them.
Let's start with the water temperature in the Mediterranean resorts.
In winter, the water in the Mediterranean Sea is too cold, and it begins to warm up only in May. Only at the beginning of June the water reaches a temperature suitable for swimming, 23-24 degrees. Even the beginning of June is considered a little risky for trips, with the temperature of the water may not be lucky. The water is cooling already at the end of October, the season of beach rest is over.
