The rewards of a Spring visit to the Mediterranean coast of Turkey

Spring is an uplifting time of the year. After the dark, cold months of winter, Springtime is the season when everything starts coming to life again. a season of vibrant colours and longer days. The weather is warmer, buds explode into beautiful blossoms and the hills and valleys around Patara and Kalkan are carpeted in wild flowers. The coastal region slowly comes to life making it an ideal time to explore the area at a gentle pace in a perfect temperature. Stock up on Vitamin D and once again relish the different tastes, sights, sounds and smells that are all part of the pleasure of international travel.

Our favourite things about a holiday in the Springtime.

Wild flowers are in abundance.

It is the ideal time to discover beautiful beaches without the crowds.

Spring and early Summer provide the perfect temperatures for exploring archaeological sites along this coast, including Patara, Xanthos, Letoon, Myra, Pinara and Tlos

It is the season to get your walking boots on. Head off into the hills, walk part of the Lycian Way and take advantage of the cooler spring temperatures and longer daylight hours.

It is the perfect time to visit places of historical, archaeological and natural interest at a gentle pace.

Hang out like a local. Explore local markets, eat traditional foods, spend time chatting with locals and watch as the area wakes up and comes to life for the summer season.

On the Mediterranean coast, Spring arrives early and the temperate climate makes it an ideal time for exploring. April is very early season and is ideal for those wanting peace and quiet and to be able to go off walking and exploring archaeological and historical sites without the crowds. Quiet evening meals can be enjoyed in the restaurants that have opened, followed by a nightcap as you plan your next day’s activities. For those who prefer to combine activity with periods of relaxation, swimming and spending lazy days by the sea, we would suggest a holiday from mid May onwards when the pool and sea water will be warmer, all restaurants, shops and cafes will be fully open and all facilities will be available, but at a gentle pace in a perfect temperature.
