What's The Weather Like In Hisaronu In February
The average temperature in Hisaronu in February is just 9C, though with highs of a marginally warmer 14C it's still likely to be relatively pleasant for sightseeing; the highest temperature ever recorded in the area is 24C, so it might even be quite warm. Temperatures fall dramatically overnight, when, with lows of a very chilly 4C, it will feel very cold indeed.
Sunshine Hours/Sea Temperature
With only 7 hours of sunshine on average each day in Hisaronu, and sea temperatures of around 16C, conditions really don't lend themselves to sunbathing and beach activities. It's a similar story across Turkey, with average temperatures of just 6C in Istanbul in the north, 9C in Izmir to the west of Hisaronu, and 11C in Alanya on the south east coast. Istanbul is, in fact, likely to be significantly colder than other areas of the country, with highs of just 8C and lows of 3C.
Winter is the rainy season in Turkey, and with 142mm of rainfall expected over 17 days in Hisaronu expect prolonged showers and possibly even some thunderstorms. Areas at lower altitude may flood at this time, but Hisaronu very rarely does. Other areas of Turkey are beginning to be a little drier at this time, with just 70mm of rainfall expected over 12 days in Istanbul and 95mm of rainfall over 11 days in Izmir. Hisaronu tends to be a little wetter year round thanks to higher altitude and the mountainous surrounding landscape.

Hisaronu Hotels In February
Gurol Aqua Resort Hotel & Apartments
The Gurol Aqua Resort Hotel & Apartments is conveniently located just 50m from the centre of Hisaronu and 3km from Oludeniz, with lovely views of the surrounding mountains (though not the Bay). Family owned, the Gurol offers a choice of hotel rooms or apartments. The furnishings and facilities are basic, but there are some amenities on site which make up for it, like a restaurant serving a range of international and local cuisine, outdoor pool area, bar and games room. This is definitely more of a mid-range choice, and much more suitable for families than couples or single persons.
The Mekik Apartments, set in mature, landscaped grounds is a mere 5 minute bus ride from Hisaronu central. Perched high up on the Ovacik plateau, the complex is surrounded by pine and cedar trees, with lovely mountain views and a fresher micro-climate than the coastal resorts in the hot summer months. Ideal for walking holidays in the spring and autumn, it's close to Ovacik and the starting point for the Lycian Way. The apartments come fully equipped, and if you're brave enough to take a dip in February, there's even an unheated outdoor pool.
