Weather Averages for Bodrum in December
Averages for Bodrum in December
It’s winter in Bodrum in December just like it is in the rest of the northern hemisphere. However, it will not feel like winter as we know it in the UK. The sun shines for 7 hours a day and temperatures range from 10°C to 16°C, so you might still be able to stroll around during the day in just your shirt sleeves.
The last month of the year is the wettest month in Bodrum. You can expect rain on 13 days out of the month and the total monthly rainfall is 108mm. Be prepared and slip a raincoat into your suitcase.
You could probably spend an entire day wandering around Bodrum Castle. It’s located on a rocky peninsula with the sea lapping around three sides and provides visitors with a great view of the harbour and international marina. The castle was built in the 15th century and you need to pass through a total of seven doors just to reach the inner sanctum.
There’s always plenty of entertainment on offer at the Hadigari nightclub in Bodrum. Throughout most of December, the club plays host to Bodrum Jazz Days, a festival featuring jazz musicians of all ages.
The Doria Hotel is just 10 minutes drive from the centre of Bodrum. You’ll be rewarded with spectacular views from this hilltop location. Enjoy being pampered in the hotel’s Wellness Centre and you’ll return home stress free and ready to take on the challenges of the New Year.
Although Turkey is a Muslim country, plenty of bars and restaurants do celebrate Christmas. If you want to be near the festive action, the Angora Hotel in the centre of town is the place to stay. It’s close to the bars, restaurants and the famous Halikarnas Disco.
