What's the weather like in Gumbert in August
Anyone who enjoys great weather, spending the majority of their holiday on the beach during the day, and partying til dawn during the night will love Gumbet at this time of year. Watersports, swimming and general beach time are seriously on the agenda during the month of August, as this is the best month in terms of sea temperatures, sitting at a very pleasant and very warm 27°C. Beaches are typically packed at this time, however many revellers from the night before don't tend to arrive on the sand until later in the afternoon, so you can pick your spot before this time.
On top of this, sun worshipers will love the huge 13 hours of sunshine per day, with days lasting long into the early evening, and the sun only setting around the 9/10pm mark to total darkness. You are extremely unlikely to notice any rain at all, with only 10mm of precipitation throughout the month on average, which again averages out to no days affected to any noticeable degree, the same as July. Put simply, you are certainly going to come away with a sun tan, so always remember sun safety at this time, especially if you are heading out on any water-based activities, such as boat trips, as the sun is typically stronger at sea, and to be especially aware with young children.
In terms of temperature, August is hot, hot, hot, with an average temperature of around 28°C, however on the warmer days the average high can reach a scorching 33°C, which is certainly more likely at the beginning and in the middle part of the month. Evenings are still very warm indeed, and again air conditioning will be needed, with an average low of 22°C throughout the month.
For a sun-filled holiday with plenty of neon-lit parting, this is the ideal month to experience this bright and vibrant resort and indeed any of Turkey's sun-drenched resorts along the south coast.

On top of this, you could look towards all-inclusive, which does cut costs down whilst you're away. There are many choices for this, including Palm Garden Hotel, with large family rooms available.

Gumbert Beaches in August
August is certainly a beach month, thanks to the best sea temperatures of the year, however during this time you will no doubt find that Gumbet's main beach is packed; never fear however, there are many beaches around the resort which not only show you something different, but are also just as relaxing and picturesque.
Turgutreis is a resort in its own right, located around 21km away, and easily accessed by bus or car. It is named after the famous Ottoman admiral, Turgut Reis, and the small town is not only charming, but will show you a more laid-back and authentic way of Turkish life. There are several beaches to enjoy, all small and sandy, with safe swimming waters, however it is also a famous place for surfing in this part of the peninsula, so do be aware of this if you are travelling with children.
Bars and Restaurants
August is beach time in Gumbet, due to the warmest sea temperature of the year, which means everyone flocks to the sands and enjoys a day splashing around in the sea. What does this mean? A huge appetite at the end of the day! Denny's is a fantastic idea for families, with a large menu to choose from, a kids' menu on offer, and a quiet, family orientated feel about the place. The portions are huge, and the view over the sea is beautiful as the sun sets.
If you are a burger lover, then head to Mr B Gourme Burger, where the handmade burgers are some of the best you will find, often thought to be the best in the resort overall. Be warned, they are huge, so make sure you are hungry!
We've said time and time again that nightlife is what people flock to this part of Turkey for, and that's certainly a truth. Bar Street is packed at this time of year, and you won't be able to move too far because of crowds, however Club Posh should certainly be on your visit list, with mainstream music, a fun atmosphere, and drinks flowing until the morning hours.
Things to do in Gumbert in August
Summer weather is certainly in abundance during August, and the beach is where it's at in terms of daily life. Gumbet Watersports offer many different watersport activities on the main stretch of beach, and one particular sport which is very popular, with amazing views, and a true experience, is parasailing. You can get this quite cheap if you haggle, and if there is more than one of you wanting to take part, you can often bargain yourself a deal. On top of this, you can try jet-skiing, banana boats, and pedalos, amongst many other sports on offer. This is a fun way to stay cool in the high temperatures which the month brings.
Alternatively, heading out of Gumbet and enjoying a totally different excursion is to be recommended, and in that case the Dalyan mud baths are certainly worth the early start. The drive to Dalyan will take around 4 hours, however excursions set off early and return late, so you get a good portion of the day to enjoy the region. The mud baths have reputed healing properties, and wallowing in the mud and getting that fun holiday souvenir photo is a fantastic way to remember your time. Trips generally include a visit to Turtle Beach, where the loggerhead turtles lay their eggs, combined with a river boat tour down the Dalyan River, passing the famous King's Tombs, dating back to the Lycian period. This is a tiring day out, but entirely worth it.
If you get bored of the beach in the resort itself and you want to explore a different one, then Kusadasi is only two hours away by bus and this is another bright and vibrant resort to check out.
