What's The Weather Like In Hisaronu In April
April is mid-spring in Hisaronu, and with Turkey's Mediterranean climate the weather is likely to be quite pleasant. As summer approaches the days are gradually lengthening, becoming warmer, and rainfall averages are falling.
The average temperature in Hisaronu in April is a very temperate 15C, with highs of 21C. The highest temperature ever recorded in the area at this time is 31C, and it's not uncommon for it to be quite hot for a few days by the end of the month. It's a similar story across other coastal areas of the country, with average temperatures in Izmir (west of Hisaronu) of 15C, and in Alanya (on the south east coast) of 16C. Istanbul, in the north of Turkey, tends to be somewhat colder year round than the more southerly resorts with average temperatures in April of 12C and highs of 16C.
Sunshine Hours/Sea Temperature
There are around 11 hours of sunshine each day, and sea temperatures have also risen to a slightly chilly (but still warmer) 17C. It's perfect weather for sightseeing and outdoor activities, though perhaps not quite hot enough for a beach holiday.
Spring does still see some rainfall, though far less than the winter months. With rainfall averages of 44mm over 14 days in April, expect the occasional light shower and some cloudy mornings. It shouldn't prove too disruptive at this time of year, but be prepared to move quickly if you decide to do any sunbathing; showers can come on quite fast thanks to Hisaronu's mountainous geography.
Rainfall averages are falling across the country, though it tends to be wetter year round the further north in Turkey you travel; Istanbul expects around 60mm of rainfall over 11 days in April and the northerly, hilly parts of the province will be even wetter.

Alex's Cocktail Bar
Alex's Cocktail Bar is a family friendly establishment, serving large breakfasts, and with big screens on which to watch the latest football game. Open fronted, the bar always has a lovely breeze running through it, and a menu of the usual British fare of burgers, fish and chips, and other favourites. By night it becomes a party bar, complete with neon lights, known for its lively ambiance and brilliant cocktails. The fishbowl cocktails are a hit, which are just what they sound like: fishbowls full to the brim with a cocktail of your choice, with a couple of straws stuck in so you can share.
Kebap Time serves delicious traditional Turkish kebabs. Not suitable for vegetarians, this is heavy, meaty fare, and very popular with tourists. It's simple, high quality food, though the portions are a little small so order big. The Adana and liver sis are very good.

Things To Do In Hisaronu In April
If you're looking for some culture and history, travel a little further afield to Marmaris to visit the castle and museum. It is thought that Marmaris Castle was first built around 1044BC by the Ionians, later on went under repair around the time of Alexander the Great and experienced further repair and widening by Suleyman the Magnificent. Suleyman the Magnificent used the castle as a military base for his troops, and during World War I the castle was under cannon fire by the French Fleet, taking huge damage.
From the 1970s, the castle was then used for local accommodation and there are a number of houses inside the castle area. Finally, the castle was restored and became a museum in 1991. It has seven indoor areas, two organised as an archaeology exhibition with amphoras belonging to the Helenistic, Roman and Byzantium era and earthenware, glassware works, coins and ornaments from the diggings of Knidos. There is an ethnography lounge; complete with carpets, furnitures, weaving works from the Ottoman era. The remaining areas are used as art galleries and for storage.
Jeep safari is a very popular way to see the local area. Tiny Akropol offer tours with a number of fun stops, including trout tickling in Yakapark, exploring the 18km long Saklıkent (The Gorge) and mud baths. Be prepared to get dirty, and bring your swimming costume for the beach.
Scuba diving is unsurprisingly very popular on the Turquoise Coast, thanks to warm seas and crystal clear waters. There are any number of tour operators and qualified diving outfits to choose from, depending on your level of experience. Dive Med in Fethiye with PADI qualified instructors, offers both beginners courses and trips for more experienced divers with equipment hire and privately owned boats to take you out to some of the best diving spots in the area.
Head to Dalyan for a day trip. Explore the ruins of an old harbour town which date back to 3000BC, take a dip in the mud baths or try your hand at fishing with the locals. Daylan also features a fantastic beach where you can see the endangered Loggerhead Turtles.
Horse Riding At Dortnal Ranch
For a bit of romance into your holiday, try the sunset horse riding trip at Dortnal Ranch. A bus will pick you up from your hotel and transport you to the ranch where you will be paired up with the perfect horse for your abilities. You'll experience a trek through the forest and over a small mountain, stopping off to appreciate the views, before heading back to the ranch.
