What's The Weather Like In Hisaronu In March
March is the start of spring in Turkey and Hisaronu, with longer, warmer days and less and less rainfall. It's still early in the year, and though temperatures are gradually beginning to climb towards their summer peak, it's likely to be a bit too chilly for the beach.
The average temperature in Hisaronu in March is 12C, with highs of 17C; very pleasant indeed for sightseeing and outdoor activities, but nowhere near warm enough for sunbathing. Overnight, the temperature falls sharply to around 6C and it will feel very cold indeed.
It's a similar story across Turkey. Istanbul in the north of the country is generally cooler than more southerly coastal areas and the average temperature is just 8C, with highs of 11C; not a great improvement on recent months. Izmir on the west coast, and Alanya on the south east coast, see similar average temperatures to Hisaronu of 11C and 13C, respectively, with highs of 16C and 17C.
There are about 9 hours of sunshine each day, compared to 7 the previous month; spring is really here and the days are definitely longer and brighter.
With sea temperatures still recovering from the cold winter, expect them to hover at about 16C on average in Hisaronu.
Winter is really the rainy season in Turkey, and through the spring rainfall averages begin to taper off across the country.

Showers at this time of year are likely to be light and short-lived, compared to the heavy downpours and thunderstorms of December and January.

Bars And Restaurants
Kumsal Bowling in lüdeniz is an excellent way to spend an evening. Kumsal is one of the original eating places in lüdeniz, before there were any hotels in the area, and the fact it has survived is proof of its popularity. They're open all year round and food prices are very reasonable. Try the pide (Turkish pizza) and lahmacun (spicy Turkish flat bread). Bowling isn't quite what you might be used to, as the shoes tend to somewhat optional with the locals so people are bowling away in bare feet, flip flops, or whatever they happen to have on. Games are very reasonably priced, and when you get hungry the staff will send your food straight down to your lane so you can carry on playing!

Things To Do In Hisaronu In March
It's an early start but short flights operate daily to Istanbul, where you can spend the day exploring Turkey's fascinating and beautiful capital city. Don't miss the Sultanahmet Camii or "Blue" Mosque, one of Istanbul's most historic sights. Built between 1609 and 1616, the interior of is decorated with more than 20,000 handmade ceramic tiles in more than fifty different designs, and the outside with an array of lovely architectural features including a central hexagonal fountain and a semi-dome with stalactite structure. The Blue Mosque has a long and fascinating history, and has become a popular tourist destination. If you decide to go inside, please be aware that the Sultanahmet Camii is still a place of worship; it's closed during prayer times and women will need to cover their heads.
Tlos was once one of the six principal cities of Lycia (and one of the most powerful). The ruined city lies on the east side of the Xanthos valley, and is dominated by the acropolis. On the slope of the hill are several Lycian sarcophagi and house and temple-type rock-cut tombs cut into the rock face. Many cultures has influenced Tlos and this is displayed in an interesting collage of structures. It's a romantic place and a must-see for history buffs. Tlos now co-exists with a village called Yaka and the fields and pomegranate trees make for very picturesque scenery.
Monday is market day in Hisaronu, if you fancy some retail therapy, with stalls taking over Hisaronu Square. Buy your fruit and veg, haggle over fake designer clothes, eat a Turkish pancake (gozleme) or just wander through the tents and people watch! It's not as big and impressive as the market in Fethiye, but still worth a visit.
If you're into sports, sign yourself up for a paragliding excursion. With an experienced guide by your side, you'll travel from the 6,000ft high Babadag Mountain before landing on Olüdeniz beach 30-40 minutes later.
Explore the surrounding area with a trip to Butterfly Valley. This valley is only accessible by boat and is home to almost every species of moth and butterfly in the Mediterranean, creating an open-air natural history museum.
