Antalya in October or how to survive the weather surprises
I had just once a holiday in Antalya in the middle of October. Now I understand why the price offers are so tempting! During a 10-day vacation I never went into the sea. I’m a heat-loving person, and therefore warm at a temperature of 20 degrees, well, not possible. And in the daytime some days I even wanted to put on a jacket, and I’m not talking about the evening.
Separately I would like to mention the subject of the sea. And all because it upset me most of all. I was used to calm and clear, but in fact it was so that the sea was boiling, throwing waves on the shore, and the color has changed, as if began preparing for winter.
Positive aspects of an October holiday:
- The number of vacationers decreased in a huge number of times. The beach is unusually empty.
- It is possible to meditate and enjoy the sea noise of the waves.
- The service is at a high level. The locals are very courteous and attentive to tourists, fulfill literally every whim.
- Low prices. Prices for souvenirs, textiles and much more can not fail to please. So surprised by the prices for children’s bed sets that I could not resist and bought two at once.
- Topical visit to the hammam. For a long time I could not understand who goes there in summer and why. Turns out it’s okay, it is useful in October, November, April.
To call it a completely useless trip I can not. Still managed to breathe the air of the sea. If we compare with a summer vacation, Turkey in the summer is mostly lying on the sun beds, but the fall holiday is much more active.
Turkey has long been a favorite place for beach lazy vacation, not only Russians, but tourists from all over the world. I do not know how the trip there this year, but two years ago we had a great vacation in Antalya in early October.
Weather in October
If you plan to spend time on the beach and swimming a lot in the sea, it is better to go at the beginning of the month, as in the second half it starts to get cold, and the air and water temperature is not favorable for a long bathing. In early October the daytime temperature ranges from 25-28 degrees and the water gets warm to a comfortable 23-25 degrees. But it should be noted that the daylight hours are short and it gets dark quite early. And with the evening air cools to 18-20 degrees and often begins to blow wind.
The rains in Antalya begins in late autumn, so in October there are no problems with it, but the clouds in the sky, which prevent sunbathing sometimes. And, of course, near the sea increased humidity and frequent changes in atmospheric pressure, which may cause the corresponding reaction of the body in people with heart problems.
Despite the low temperature by local standards, it is better to use a sunscreen with a factor of 30-50, as you can get burnt literally in half an hour. Headgear should also be worn when under the sun.
Antalya is a tourist city that focuses on year-round tourism (except that February and March are not very popular), so fruits and vegetables are sold all year round. In addition, Turkey itself grows most of them, so oranges, dates or huge grapes you can always buy at the market or try in a hotel restaurant. There is no special seasonality in the dishes, because tourists come from different countries, and sellers want to reach the maximum audience.
As far as food is concerned, you should try fish and meat dishes – they are especially delicious in Antalya!
At the end of October the whole country celebrates Turkey Day and Antalya is no exception: there are food festivals, performances and fairs all over the city. Restaurants and cafes offer special dishes and entertainment until the morning. On other days, you can visit local discos, bars, pubs and shows, of which there are hundreds, if not thousands.
If you evaluate the October we were vacationing, there were a lot of tourists and all the hotels were 90-100% full. Sometimes even for all there were not enough sun beds or a place at the pool, and to reserve tables in good institutions had to several days before the scheduled date of a visit. Tourists come from different countries, but about half of the total were travelers from the former CIS countries. About 1/4 were Germans and Austrians, and the remaining quarter was occupied by a variety of nationalities.
After the tour sales ban, as far as I know, the number of Russian tourists fell by about 80-90%, but there are still direct flights and you can book the right hotel yourself in a few minutes.
Given the flexibility of prices and the advertising campaign conducted by the Ministry of Tourism of Turkey around the world, the country quickly made up for this loss and October 2016 in Antalya will be as crowded as it was two years ago.
Mosquitoes are not very aggressive and only rare bites can disturb you, but if you have hypersensitivity, take with you a spray for and after bites. Antalya’s fauna is no other threat.
Recently in Turkey terrorist attacks become more frequent, and television creates a picture of tension and insecurity during a stay in the country. But all these events take place in the capital and other non-tourist cities on the Black Sea coast or in the center of the country, while in Antalya there is the eternal atmosphere of festivity and safe holidays.
Apart from the well-known measures, there is no need to do anything else: Antalya is safe for health and life at the moment, as it was two years ago in October.
