November is the first month after the tourist season and things begin to seriously quiet down in Olu Deniz. Most shops, restaurants and hotels close down for the winter and will only open up again in late April.

Temperature drops steadily during the month, reaching lows of 5°C towards the end. The highest expected temperature on average is 15°C and is usually encountered early on in November.
Average Sea Temperature
Even though sea temperature is at 19°C, the outside temperature makes swimming unpleasant, since the air is rather chilly.
Humidity and Rain
Humidity has now risen to a winter-like 80%, which makes the cold feel stronger than it is. It is best to plan many indoors activities if one visits Olu Deniz in November, since on average a third of the month is comprised by rainy days. You can expect at least 9 days of rain and an average rainfall of 130mm.
There is a chance that snow will fall during November, especially high up on the mountain tops, which makes hiking dangerous. Nonetheless, there are plenty of low altitude places to go for a walk, which will look luscious and green due to the heavy rainfall of the season.

Things to do in Olu Deniz in November

One such place is the famous Ephesus, an ancient Greek city of immense beauty and historic significance. The tour will last for two days with an overnight stay at another hotel. You will travel through the beautiful landscapes of eastern Turkey to see the wonders of old Ephessus and experience a fascinating mix of new and old cultures.
Usually the same tour will also get you to Pamukkale. The landscape looks oddly white, thanks to the carbonate materials left behind by the waters.
