What's the weather like in Olu Deniz in December


December in Olu Deniz has certainly the least desirable weather conditions for a holiday out of all the months of the year. The average temperature isn't the coldest of the year at 7°C, but it feels extremely low due to the high humidity levels.

The highest on average temperature reaches 11°C at the beginning of the month, while the temperature can actually drop as low as 3°C during close to New Year's time. Occasional freezing lows can be reached, especially early in the morning, which can be as low as -1°C.


Humidity on average will be at 85%, making the temperature on average feel like it is below zero.


The worst part is the extremely heavy and long rainfalls that occur during December. It might rain for up to 12 days during this month and the rainfall can reach 180mm, the highest of the year. If you do choose to visit Olu Deniz during December, be prepared for a lot of rain.

Snow and Fog

For five whole days on average there can be snow and fog, which can cover the mountain peaks and make them completely inaccessible. In the higher altitudes the snow might even persist for a bit longer.

Average Sunshine Hours

Nonetheless, there is an average of 6 hours of sunshine per day, which is much more than the average Northern European country will see during December, and it's not as cold as Northern Europe either.

Average Sea Temperature

Swimming is not recommended during December, as the average sea temperature drops down to 17°C.

Olu Deniz Hotels in December

Most hotels are now closing down until next summer in Olu Deniz, since it is mainly a beach resort, but there are still plenty of great places to stay at this time of year.

Yatch Classic

A beautiful hotel in nearby Fethiye, the Yacht Classic, is a great place to stay during winter when most hotels are closed until the next season. With spacious rooms, impeccable service and plenty of amenities including a spa and marina, the Yacht Classic will make your holiday a memorable one come rain or sunshine.

Caretta Apart Hotel

For those who want to enjoy the Mugla Province's beauty on a tight budget, the Caretta Apart Hotel in Fethiye only a short drive away from Olu Deniz is the perfect place to stay in December. The hotel is cheap, very clean and the staff is reliably friendly and helpful. The hotel enjoys a large number of return customers, which is testament to its high quality and service. A good option for families, too.

Olu Deniz Beaches For December

Oludeniz Beach

You will find Oludeniz Beach (also known as Oludeniz Blue Lagoon) just outside the town of Fethiye which is wedged in the valley. The beach is known for its stunning views and with no nearby clubs or venues, it makes the ultimate secret and peaceful getaway. Those of you who are thrill seekers can take a short journey up the nearby Babadag Mountain for a paragliding experience. If that's not for you and you prefer a more chilled time then you could take a stroll along the promenade and watch the golden sunsets.

Datca Peninsula
Datca Peninsula is a 50 mile round trip. It is a nice one-day long trip, where you can travel in very picturesque mountainous landscape, see ruins of the ancient town of Knidos on the western hill or swim in the beautiful beaches on the southern side. Some of the beaches include Beach Kovanlık which is found near Aktur, Beach Domuzini which is south-east of the peninsula. These stunning beaches are fairly small and are tucked away around the cliff faces along the coastal paths of the peninsula.

Bars and Restaurants

Blue Butterfly Restaurant

The Olive Tree

In the heart of Hisaronu you can find the award-winning restaurant The Olive Tree. Offering fine food and known for its excellent service, the Olive Tree is a must if you're after excellent food and wine. A bit of treat, which is ideal if the weather is not at its best.

Things to do in Olu Deniz in December

Olu Deniz Sultan Spa

During the cold and wet month of December you need to plan a few things to do indoors for when the weather is truly bad. One such place is the Olu Deniz Sultan Spa. Be properly pampered and relax in the hands of professional masseurs. Note that if you enter the hammam, you can wear swimsuits or a thin towel, but the authentic experience is to go in naked. After the steam hammam, enjoy a wonderfully soothing massage and then lounge in a relaxing bathing area.


Another great thing to do at this time of year is visit the nearby cities. The cities in the province of Mugla, where Olu Deniz is, are built on older, ancient settlements and offer plenty of historical sites and museums to visit. Marmaris is one of the most beautiful resorts in Turkey. Visit the city for its many excellent restaurants, grand marina and fascinating culture and history.

Datca Peninsula

If you visit Marmaris you should visit the Datca Peninsula and soak up stunning views of the gorgeous mountains and sea views. The landscape is breathtaking and well worth the hike.

Ancient Site Of Kaunos

n the nearby city of Dalyan you can visit the ancient site of Kaunos. This ancient city has a 3000-year long history. There isn't much left standing, but the serene environment makes the trip worthwhile. It is close enough to the city, too, so if the weather takes a turn for the worst you can be back at your hotel in no time.
