Antalya is the largest port and vacation destination in southern Turkey. It is situated on the rough shore of the Mediterranean Sea. The influence of the Mediterranean Sea and the barrier effect of the Taurus Mountains lead to the development of the region’s subtropical Mediterranean climate. The mountains block northern winds and keep hurricanes from moving further north. Let’s ponder over why you should enjoy winter in Antalya.
Winter Season in Antalya
Winters in Antalya are often pleasant, warm, and a little bit rainy. The temperature fluctuates between 6 and 11 °C (42 and 52 °F) at night and 13 and 17 °C (55 and 62 °F) during the day. Rainy days do occur frequently, however they are typically followed by bright days with a clear, blue sky. Up to 8 hours of brilliant sunshine are available each day.
The twisting cobblestone streets of the historic quarter are best explored in the winter, as are the harbour’s snow-white boats and the ancient fortification’s ruins. Activities on the beach are limited by the sea’s frigid water.

Why You should Enjoy Winter in Antalya
Antalya is the second most popular tourist destination in Turkey. It is worthwhile to visit there at any time of year because the tourism sector offers activities for people of all ages. If you still need more convincing, check out our arguments on why you should put it on your list of must-see locations.
From July through September is the busiest travel season, and this is also the most expensive time to stay at a hotel. You gain from the variation in season pricing during the winter, when hotels are obliged to sell their rooms at a loss. This also holds true for restaurants and shops that provide exclusive discounts to entice customers during particular months.
Consider a world in which there are fewer people and lines everywhere—at the hotel front desk, the airport, on the local bus, and when dining out. Fewer people everywhere mean swift, efficient service. We also like visiting local tourist attractions in the winter because we can do so at our convenience and avoid the summertime crowds.
