Weather Averages for Marmaris in August
Averages for Marmaris in August
August is the height of the summer season in Marmaris and remains scorching hot. Expect soaring temperatures and bustling crowds.
Daytime temperatures can reach a sweltering high of 33°C (91°F) and only cool to around 20°C (68°F) in the evenings. With 13 hours of sunshine every day, you will definitely be spending a lot of time at the beach!
The sea is warmer at this time of year so you can always cool off with a refreshing dip. There are also plenty of water sports on offer for the thrill seekers among you. Why not try your hand at waterskiing, parasailing or scuba diving?
Take care to avoid sunburn and sun stroke during your stay.
Always wear sunscreen with a high enough SPF for your skin and seek shelter from the sun during the hottest part of the day. Drink plenty of water throughout the day as well.
Away from the beach, you can take in the history of the area by visiting the ancient cities of Amos and Physkos. Among the ruins you will find the remains of the remarkably well preserved amphitheatre.
Those with young children should seek accommodation away from the centre of Marmaris as it can be very busy and noisy. Nearby Armutalan is much quieter and has a range of accommodation ranging from the apartments of Club Aladdin to the resort of Mustis Royal Plaza.
Hotel Honeymoon is popular with younger holiday makers due to its proximity to the nightclubs, and high end resorts can be found around the harbour and marina.
