What's The Weather Like In Hisaronu In November
November is the end of autumn and start of winter in Turkey, with shorter, cooler days and higher rainfall averages. Thanks to Turkey's temperate Mediterranean climate, it tends to be quite pleasant year round but in November it's definitely no longer beach weather. However, without the sweltering temperatures and crowds of tourists in the summer, it's possible at this time to really enjoy sightseeing and outdoor activities at this time.
Temperature/Sunshine Hours/Sea Temperature
The average temperature in Hisaronu in November is 14C, with highs of 19C. There are still 8 hours of sunshine each day, and sea temperatures remain at on average a very pleasant 21C. Overnight the temperature falls dramatically to around 8C and it will feel very much colder; particularly in coastal areas where there is a sea breeze and in Hisaronu with its slightly higher altitude.
It's a similar story across the country. Izmir sees average temperatures of just 14C, with highs of 18C, and Alanya average temperatures of 15C with highs of 21C. The further north you travel, the colder it tends to be year round. Istanbul, for example, sees average temperatures of 12C and highs of only 14C.
Winter is the rainy season in Turkey, so expect heavy, prolonged showers and cloud cover by the end of November. Rainfall averages have increased to 113mm over 16 days in Hisaronu; a pattern that is repeated in most coastal resorts. Istanbul, in the north, sees higher rainfall year round but tends to have less significant differences between seasons and as a consequence the rainfall average at this time is just 100mm over 13 days.

Things To Do In Hisaronu In November
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. There is far too much to see to fit it all in in one day, you'd be pushed to see everything in a week, but the Egyptian or Spice Bazaar is definitely not to be missed. In fact, you could probably spend most of the day just getting lost here in the maze of covered streets and stalls, haggling for bargains.
The bazaar was (and still is) the centre for spice trade in Istanbul, though in recent years more and more of the traditional spice stalls are being replaced by shops selling other things. There are colourful stalls selling, amongst other things, spices, carpets, clothing, local crafts, food and traditional Turkish coffee. Though, on a note of caution, it's likely to be extremely hot and very crowded at peak times during the summer months.
Trip To Xanthos
If you're planning on hiring a car during your holiday in Hisaronu, a trip to Xanthos is a must. Although it is a long way to travel, it is a great place to spend a day with the family. The whole area is a fascinating archaeological site packed with ancient ruins, some of which date back to 1,400BC.
If you're feeling in need of a little pampering, head down to the nearest hammam (Turkish bath) to get pummelled and steamed. Some of the big hotels have their own hammam onsite, or visit Hisaronu's modern Turkish bath. The hammam experience includes a hot steam sauna, following by a lie down on a hot marble slab and then a glove scrub and wash in soapy foam by one of the attendants. The procedure takes about half an hour and the hammam also offers a variety of oil massages by professional masseurs.
Butterfly Valley is one of Fethiye's best kept secrets. Deep, steep and accessible only by boat or steep walking trail the valley remains remote and unspoiled. Located at the base of Babadag Mountain and protected by the World Heritage Foundation, the name is derived from the clouds of butterflies, who up until recently have been the only residents. There are over 60 different species of butterfly in the valley, some very rare; if you're interested, there's a small museum that can give you more information. In addition to the butterflies, there are also two small waterfalls, providing a refreshingly cool shower after a hike through the valley, and a small white pebbled beach on which to sunbathe or paddle. The only accommodation is in tree houses or bring your own tent camping, so be prepared to rough it if you come for more than just a flying visit.
