Weather Averages for Kalkan in August
Averages for Kalkan in August
The coastal town of Kalkan in Turkey draws visitors from all around the world with its laid back and relaxed atmosphere and nightlife and picturesque narrow cobbled streets, whitewashed houses and Greek-style villas. On top of it all, the area boasts 300 sunny days each year!
August is not only Kalkan’s hottest month, it’s also the driest! This makes August an extremely popular time to visit the town and visitors may find the beaches and bays especially busy as locals and other travellers take advantage of this great weather.
Temperatures in August range from 19 to 33 degrees celsius. This is may a little uncomfortable for those not used to such heat, especially overnight. Rainfall is almost non-existent with just 3mm expected on average.
With this fine August weather, it would be a shame to do anything except enjoy it on the beach. The 7.5 mile long Patara Beach is also the widest beach in the northern Med, and is the second most important turtle nesting site in Turkey. Fortunately, this means the beach is protected from mass tourism. Unfortunately, it means the beach is closed after sunset during the summer months as the turtles take priority, so make sure to get there early!
Don’t worry though, there’s plenty to do after sunset, such drinking and dining at the Baharat Restaurant. Hot and cold Turkish mezes can be enjoyed on the outdoor terrace, along with a selection of traditional breads. There’s a kids menu, too, for younger diners.
Visitors can stay at the Kalamar Hotel for £47 per night. Rooms are spacious and command stunning views over the Kalkan bay and surrounding area. The hotel has it’s own private beach which is free for hotel guests, and the area is Blue Flag accredited so guests can be sure the beach is as clean as can be.
