Averages for Alanya in October
The main difference in the climate of October will be seen in the night time temperatures. Days are still extremely warm, dropping off just slightly from the summer months. Additionally, there will be slightly more rainfall, but not much. This is to be expected after the incredibly dry summers in Alanya.
The average low temperature for October is 59°F (15°C). Those who plan on being out partying or dining during October may find a light jacket or long sleeves more comfortable, although most will be comfortable in even short sleeves. The average high temperature is still very warm at 80.6°F (25°C).
The average sea temperature is 73.4°F (23°C). The water temperature will actually be warm enough for swimming and water sports for the entire month of October and even into November.
Perge is one site that tourists should make a point to see. Rich with history, these ancient ruins are incredibly well preserved. This is not only seen in the large structures, but it is also evident in the smaller ones as well, which gives visitors the sense of being transported back hundreds of years when they walk between the stone columns. Previous visitors recommend setting aside a few hours and bringing an informative guidebook along in order to truly appreciate the Perge.
