Best time to visit Antalya

Antalya offers pleasant weather all year round. The peak tourist season is during the summer (June – August), when temperatures reach higher than the mid-30s. While this is when you can get the best weather, be prepared to endure crowded attractions and book your accommodation well in advance. To get the best availability, low hotel rates and less crowds, visit Antalya during spring (April – May) and autumn (September – October). The weather during these times is still pleasant, plus many of the attractions are still open.
