What's the Weather like in Kalkan in June
June is a wonderful time to visit Kalkan, and is perfect for anyone wanting a relaxing time before the crowds arrive in the masses, with a guaranteed sun tan to go home with, and cheaper holidays compared to the following months of July and August.
As the last month before the peak season of summer begins, you can expect a steep increase in temperature, and with this you can expect an average of 22°C throughout the month, which can reach a very warm 28°C as an average high, much more likely towards the end of the month overall. Evenings are certainly much warmer too, at around 15°C, making evenings out a very pleasant affair.
On top of this, the sun has got its hat on for the rest of summer now, with around 13 hours of bright sunshine to be expected per day throughout the month days without sun are extremely unlikely now. Summer has finally taken hold throughout the whole of the south of the country, such as in nearby resorts like Fethiye.
Those wanting to hit the beach will find less crowds during this month, but the sea is certainly warm enough now for water-sports and swimming, with an average water temperature of around 23°C very refreshing indeed! The main beaches will all offer plenty of water-sports to try, and the beaches will begin to be much busier as a result be sure to get there early to get the best spot.
Rain is almost non-existent now that summer has taken hold, and this is the last month when perhaps you have much chance of seeing any rain at all. Throughout the month you can expect an average of 14mm of rainfall, which is generally spread over 4 days; this tells you a lot about how little effect it should have on your holiday very little at all! Just to be sure though, you can always check the live weather forecast.
Hotels in Kalkan in June
June means more in the way of sun in a big way, and that means your accommodation should have swimming pools and sun-loungers aplenty. Thankfully, you won't struggle with this.
Kulube Hotel is a B&B hotel which is sat in a fantastic position, with beautiful gardens which roll gently down to the sea. There are two swimming pools one freshwater and one saltwater, and platforms with enough sun-loungers for everyone. Alternatively, Elixir Hotel gives you the choice of upgrading to a suite or deluxe room for your stay, and is close to everything, which is a bonus as the temperatures rise. The on-site restaurant and poolside bar are major perks, as well as the indoor pool, outdoor pool, and dedicated children's pool.
Hotel Dionysia & Apartments
Hotel Dionysia & Apartments offer a B&B or self catering apartment option, which feels homely and almost villa-like. Again, this is close to everything so no need to walk too far, and you can choose a mountain or land view to wake up to every morning.
Hit the beach
If you want a beach which is secluded and totally beautiful, then Kaputas Beach is for you. This is actually featured on the front of many travel brochures pertaining to this part of the Turkish coastline, which should tell you something about its beauty! The beach rarely gets crowded, and the water is always clear and warm, especially in June when you can expect an average water temperature of a delightful 23°C.
You can hire umbrellas on site, and there is a snack bar for cold drinks. Do be aware that there are a few steep steps down to the beach however.
Bars and Restaurants
Blue Marlin Fish & Meze
Many people love to try seafood when they go away on holiday to a coastal resort, and the great thing about Kalkan is that the whole resort built itself up to what it is today on the fishing industry. This means there are many different restaurants to try freshly caught fish, and Blue Marlin Fish & Meze is perhaps the most popular. You will need to get there early or book ahead, as you will find crowds, particularly during June, and many tables will already be reserved. There is a good reason for this, basically because the fish dishes on offer are fantastic, and although this isn't the cheapest restaurant, it is more than worth it.
If you're simply looking for somewhere to stop as you're exploring the resort then make sure you call in at Café Leon. This stylish café/bar is famous for its coffee and cakes, but the menu runs to much more than that, with traditional Turkish and Mediterranean dishes on offer. Alternatively, Celik Terrace Restaurant is a quieter choice, but offers a large range of dishes, including the popular grilled meat selection. Prices are very reasonable here, and presentation is up there with the best.
Things to Do in Kalkan in June
June is an ideal time to get active, now the sun is shining, the weather is warm, and there is very little chance of rain at all. One very popular activity in Kalkan is scuba diving.
Kalkan Dive Centre
The resort is known as being one of the top sites in the country for diving and marine life, with several dive sites around the waters. Marine-life includes groupers, sardines, barracudas, turtles, nurse sharks, and octopus, to name just a few. You can learn from scratch if you are a beginner, with a course through Kalkan Dive Centre, or you can hire equipment and head off on your own steam if you are an experienced diver.
Another activity which is great for all the family is river canoeing. Xanthos River is a great place to try this, and many tour operators will have trips which give you the knowledge of an experienced guide, as you head downstream through the river, passing ancient Lycian ruins as you go. The trip usually ends at Patara Beach, where you can have a swim break and a BBQ lunch.
Alternatively, why not try paragliding for a totally different view of the resort. Skyline Paragliding offer trips into the mountains, picking you up at your hotel, before driving up high to your drop off point. This is an exhilarating, once in a lifetime activity which everyone will love, and the views of the bay will blow your mind.
