Bodrum and Izmir Coast weather overview
Bodrum weather is perfect for beach holidays in the summer, but it can also be a superb antidote to cold dark Northern European winters, with its average of 5 hours of sunshine a day in December and January.
The Bodrum and Izmir Coast in southwest Turkey, also known as the Aegean Coast, runs from Izmir in the north to the Gulf of Gokova in the south, where Bodrum and the popular nearby holiday resort areas of Gumbet, Ortakent, Turgutreis, Gumusluk, and Yalikavak are all located. The whole coast faces southwest on to the Aegean Sea.
Daytime temperatures can easily reach well into the thirties Celsius in the hottest months from June to September, and have been known to exceed 40°C in July. Heat and humidity are also high in July and August which some people may find uncomfortably hot.
There is also little chance of any rain from the middle of April to mid October, so like many other holiday destinations in the Mediterranean during summer the vegetation and landscape become quite parched.
One of the main attractions in this whole area is the beautifully indented coastline and crystal clear waters. The beaches are not noted for their fine sand but there are many small, often shallow coves that provide excellent opportunities for swimming and other kinds of water sports especially windsurfing.
These winds help to dispel some of the heat and humidity, and are much loved by windsurfers as well.
In fact 75% of Bodrum's annual rainfall occurs from the beginning of November to the end of February. But the sun still shines a lot; in December and January there are 5 hours of sunshine a day on average. At the same time maximum daytime temperatures hover around the mid teens Celsius.
By the middle of March there is noticeable less rain and more hours of sunshine. April and May are beautiful months especially if you enjoy trekking or cycling; daytime temperatures typically are in the low to mid twenties Celsius.
However it is a bit early for swimming. Sea temperatures do not rise above 20°C before the end of May.
Bodrum has something for everyone in every month of the year. Some visit during the winter to escape from northern Europe. Others like the spring and autumn because it is less crowded and not so hot. But there is also something to be said for cloudless days and lazing by the beach in summer.
