Weather Overview for Side
Having a typical Mediterranean climate means that Side plays host to long hot summers and short mild winters.
Side is a small town on the southern coast of Turkey. It is one of the most well known ancient towns in the country. It is about 75 km from Antalya. Side sits upon a small peninsula that is only about 800m in length, providing some spectacular views across the Mediterranean Sea.
Summer sees average highs reach into the 30’s, and it’s not uncommon to have several days in a row in excess of 40°C in the peak of summer. The average temperature is about 24°C to 25°C with peak months seeing average highs of 34°C and average lows of 22°C. Day time temperatures average highs above 20°C are seen from April till November with average highs above 30°C between June and September. This is very hot and while the evenings are cooled by the sea breezes of the Mediterranean, you may find it a little uncomfortable.
Summer months see the almost no rain. Sunny days are a plentiful; each day sees about 11 hours of uninterrupted sunshine.
In winter the average minimum temperature is about 6°C. This occurs on most nights from the end of December till the end of February. Day time highs stay in the mid teens so you can often be out in your t shirt. This is when the region sees its peak rainfall; it rains frequently and heavily.
Autumn and spring are great times to visit the region as well as you will find yourself many bargains and few tourists. The shoulder seasons are warm but often rainy.
Another factor making Side a great place to visit year round is its amazing ruins. Side was once a port and ruins of the ancient city are scattered amongst the modern-day architecture. So you can soak up the sun, swim in the crystal waters of the Mediterranean Sea or spend you days taking in ancient history!
