Averages for Kalkan in November
With a glorious Mediterranean climate and just a short flight time from the UK, the small Turkish town of Kalkan is especially popular with British tourists. The area tends to draw a crowd looking for a quieter and more intimate atmosphere than some of the larger and more well known resorts in Turkey can provide.
The weather in November in Kalkan is very different to in the UK, and it shows very few signs of heading into the typical chilly festive season. Temperatures can actually reach the low 20s in November, averaging between 9 and 20 degrees celsius.
Rainfall increases significantly from previous months, with 112mm falling on average. Visitors should pack a light coat or small umbrella for rainy days, though there’s plenty of indoor activities in Kalkan, too.
Pull the raincoat on and head off on a trip to Xanthos. Xanthos is very close to Kalkan town centre, just past Patara Beach. Being the former capital city of Lycia, it’s one of the most important ancient sites in Turkey. The pillar tombs, dating back to the 5th Century, can still be seen here, along with an amphitheatre and an old Roman cobbled street. It’s a must see sight for all history and culture buffs.
Back in Kalkan, spend an evening at Salt & Pepper, a fun restaurant and bar in the town centre. The restaurant menu serves up Mediterranean cuisine, carefully paired with the perfect wine, while the bar menu is overflowing with cocktails such as the ‘Kalkan Dream’, ‘Amour’ and the ‘Taste of Love’.
The Hotel Pandora offers rooms for just £32. All 20 rooms here all boast private balconies and air conditioning and there’s a complimentary daily shuttle between the property and the centre of town. The real attraction of this hotel is the rooftop bar, perfect for relaxing before bed.
