The north of the country tends to be cooler year round, and with average temperatures of 24C and highs of 28C in Istanbul.
Sunshine Hours/Sea Temperature
There are up to 14 hours of sunshine on average each day, so plenty of time for sunbathing, and sea temperatures are a very pleasant 25C. It's easy to see why the beaches get so crowded at this time of year! It will feel somewhat fresher in Hisaronu due to low humidity and slightly higher altitude.

Other areas of Turkey may be slightly wetter, particularly to the north of the country, but there's unlikely to be more than the occasional light shower overnight anywhere. Rain is usually accompanied by thunderstorms this time of year, particularly in Hisaronu thanks to its more mountainous geography.

Hisaronu Beaches For July
Gunluklu is in the same style as Katranci, another beautiful but slightly more secluded cove, around 19km from Fethiye. You'll need a car to get there as it's quite remote. The cove is perfumed by storax trees, which are so dense that underneath they block out the sky. It's an ideal place for camping under the stars, though there are few amenities such as you find at the busier and more popular sites.
Kidrak is located about a kilometre to the east of Belcegiz. Also an environmentally protected beach, it boasts an impressive natural beauty and is the most popular camping area in Fethiye. The beach is small shingle is stunning and very easy to get to. It's rarely crowded at any time of year.
Bars And Restaurants
Servet Turkish Delight Factory
Servet Turkish Delight Factory in Fethiye is a wonderful day out, and a great place to get your fill of this local treat. Otherwise known as "lokum", Turkish delight, is a traditional sweet made of sugar and starch. It is believed that the production goes back to the 15th century.
The ingredients of lokum are sugar, corn starch and water, boiled together with fruits or nuts or flavouring for 1 to 2 hours. This thick sticky liquid is then poured into special wooden trays and sprinkled with corn starch. It stands from 24 to 48 hours until it is cool and has a flexible consistency. Then the starch is brushed off, it is sprinkled with powdered sugar and cut up into small cubes. Apart from plain, there are any number of different varieties: strawberry, cherry, lemon, orange, pistachio, walnut and almond, are traditional and favourite varieties are different in each province.
Shine Indian Restaurant
If you fancy a curry, Shine Indian Restaurant comes highly recommended. Curries are cooked to your taste and the menu features are the usual and familiar varieties. The prices are very reasonable and they cater for both meat eaters and vegetarians. The Baltis are very popular.
The Olive Tree Restaurant
Boasting fine cuisine and excellent service, The Olive Tree Restaurant is one of the most popular eateries in Hisaronu. Only open to diners 14 years and older, this eatery is the place to go if you want to enjoy a sophisticated meal in peace and quiet.
Things To Do In Hisaronu In July
There are any number of different cruise experiences on offer at Fethiye Harbour, but if you're travelling with the family the Splash Cruise is a lot of fun. Board a traditional gulet boat at the Harbour, and embark on a tour of the twelve islands in the bay. The boat docks from time to time so you can hop off and have a swim or do some snorkelling, and lunch is served on board.
Sultan's Aqua City
Sultan's Aqua City in Fethiye is a great day out for the whole family, with huge, splashy slides and pools, as well as a number of games and activities (including live water polo) to keep everyone occupied. The poolside bar serves drinks and snacks and there are qualified lifeguards on hand to keep everyone safe in the water.
If the heat proves to be too much for a day at the beach, spend a few hours exploring the nearby area of Gocek. Here you can stroll around the marina, wander through the market square, or pop in one of the many cafes for a spot of lunch.
