Weather Averages for Kalkan in July
Averages for Kalkan in July
Kalkan is one of Turkey’s most diverse towns. Appealing to those who want a sunny seaside getaway with beachside cocktails and beers as well as those who want to be off exploring and learning about local history, it is no wonder this tiny Turkish town is one of the country’s most popular travel destinations.
Temperatures well above the 30 degree mark are expected in July, so it can be quite toasty in Kalkan. The average peak temperature is around 32 degrees, whereas overnight temperatures are often as high as 19 degrees celsius.
Rainfall is similar to that of June, with 6mm expected during the month. Once again, this means particularly clear and dry days, with lots of beach and coastal activity.
Those who aren’t content with staying in one place can take advantage of July’s great weather and hop on a Meis Express ferry for a day trip to the Greek Island of Meis, situated less than a mile off the Turkish coast. Ferry crossings take just 20 minutes from Kas, a town 16 miles down the coast from Kalkan and a return trip costs just £16. The Blue Cave is the most popular tourist attraction here. Reached only by boat, the sunlight reflecting off the water makes the cave appear a vibrant shade of turquoise.
The boat returns to Kas at 3:30pm daily so there’s plenty of time to shoot back up to Kalkan and prepare for a Trio dinner. The restaurant offers mouth watering cuisine in an al fresco setting, and also has an outdoor bar serving up exotic cocktails until the early hours.
£50 is all that’s needed for a night at the Rhapsody Hotel. Each room is designed to be a peaceful haven with views over the Kalkan bay. There’s a traditional Turkish bath onsite, as well as a spa offering manicures, pedicures and waxing. Guests under Turkey’s romantic spell can even get married at this property!
