Averages for Kalkan in October
Kalkan on Turkey’s Mediterranean coast is actually closer to some of the Greek islands than it is to other parts of Turkey itself. As such, the area has a huge Greek influence that’s evident in its architecture, food and laid back attitude.
Although heading into Autumn, temperatures are still very reminiscent of summer in Kalkan in October. Ranging from 13 degrees to 25 degrees celsius, it’s more typical of a British summer. This is still a popular time for tourists to visit the town.
Rainfall ups a bit, but with just 57mm expected to fall it’s certainly not the ‘rainy season’ yet. The Mediterranean climate ensures rainfall stays remarkably minimal throughout most of the year.
Take advantage of the lingering nice weather in October and head out on a refreshing trip to sea. The Yildiz boat company offers day trips, departing Kalkan at 10:30am and returning at 6pm on either the Yildiz 2 or Yildiz 3. Each carrying up to 12 guests at a time, these boats take visitors on tours around the various coves and beaches in the Kalkan area, and travellers are encouraged to jump into the sea to really make the most of the trip - be sure to take your swimwear!
For a unique dining experience in Kalkan’s town centre, look no further than the Aubergine Restaurant. The comfortable outdoor dining area ensures guests dine on traditional Mediterranean fare in only the most luxurious of environments. The signature dish here is baked aubergine with onion, garlic, tomato and sweet peppers.
