Holidays in Turkey in October 2022 – prices, reviews, all inclusive.
If the idea to replenish the supply of vitamin D came along with the first frosts, one of the successful destinations for travel in October is Turkey.
Holidays at sea is especially nice when they send pictures of the rain from home, and you’re meanwhile thinking about how many spf to choose, so as not to get burnt Hasten to please: Turkey in the summer is much truer “fry” than Turkey in early October, because this period – the end of the Indian summer, when it is still comfortable to swim, but no exhausting heat.
In Turkey you can. The country is open and the ptsr tests were canceled.
- Tours in October cost from 45,000 rubles for two people for a week all inclusive. You can clarify and see what is offered at all on the aggregator Travelata, which collected tours from all leading tour operators.
Weather in Turkey in October
In brief, the situation is as follows: the holiday season is ending, and the Mediterranean Sea is still warm enough for bathing (+25°C). Accordingly, there are few people (do not believe in Turkey in October) and lower prices for holiday tours (those who believe and go – a minority).
In addition, the weather in Turkey in October is ideal for excursions – no red-hot buses and historical ruins, everything is measured and fun
We stayed in Turkey in mid-May (in October, the weather is similar, only the sea is warmer), we bought a tour on Fortuna 4 stars
The hottest weather on the coast of Turkey in October in Alanya and Side. The temperature reaches +28 ° C during the daytime. Next come Belek, Antalya, Kemer, where it’s slightly cooler, +26 ° C. In the evening is worth bringing a pair of windbreakers.
In addition, when choosing a date for a trip, keep in mind that with the advent of autumn the beach holiday is complicated by rain. So, in late October, the rainfall is more frequent, but not critical.
Where is the warmer sea in October?
Here everything is simple: the further to the east the resort is situated, the warmer is the water temperature.
- Among the warmest places for swimming: Alanya, Side, Belek and Kemer, the temperature is kept at around +25 ° C, so that even children will be comfortable.
Turkey is generally a great choice for a trip in October with children (below we will consider why). Aegean Sea (Marmaris, Bodrum, Kusadasi) – more no than yes, the water temperature, as well as the air, drops to +23 ° C.

Tour Prices to Turkey in October 2022
You can always get a cheap trip to Turkey. But it happens that travel agencies, where they usually go for a trip, are not always interested in small price tags. Therefore we always advise to look for tours on their own – on the online-aggregators:
You’ll see the same database of offers that the travel agent has on the screen – from the cheapest offers to the luxury. Aggregators compare prices for all major tour operators (limited choice? No, not heard), and therefore are able to 1) catch any promotional or hot tour, 2) suggest a minimum cost and when it is better to fly.
✓ Prices for Turkey in October 2022 start from 45,000 rubles per week for two (from Moscow). The tours are budget, but the level of the hotel is not high – 2-3*.
✓ All inclusive in good “four” – from 55 000 rubles, and in five stars – from 60 000.
By the way, having paid 6-10 thousand extra, you can stay for 10 days Always check the different dates of the trip.

Where is the best vacation in Turkey in October? Choosing a resort
“Which resort to choose in Turkey?” – is probably the first question you’ll ask when planning a vacation.
If you want to rest inexpensively, Alanya is a win-win option for a holiday in Turkey in October. The democratic prices can be explained by the remote location from the airport (120 km) and a modest level of service and quality of the hotel fund.
But the beach Cleopatra is within walking distance from any point (provided that you do not live in the settlements) and has a fine golden sand and a gentle entrance to the water. Alanya is practically the only resort that has municipal beaches. In other regions of Turkey, all the beaches belong to the hotels, and it is not so easy to get to them by an outsider.
From Antalya airport it takes about an hour to reach Kemer. Kemer is also a budget destination, and its only drawback is the poor “five” economy class (going for the price of “three”).
But in Kemer transparent water – thanks to pebble beaches – and stunning mountain views. The air here is clean, because pine trees grow everywhere. In addition, many bars/clubs are open, and even in the autumn, the nightlife does not stop.
Kemer / Side. Do you want to know where is better?
Generally, Turkey is associated with these two resorts – Alanya and Kemer – and it is, in principle, understandable: cheap, warm, you can swim. We will list the other locations, also popular, but preferred by certain categories of tourists:
- Side – for those who need clean sea, sandy beach, quiet atmosphere and a share of history. Particularly loved by parents with children.
- Belek is a luxury vacation in 5* hotels with golf courses and concerts of Russian stars.
- Antalya – the capital city of the coast, where it is better to rest not sitting on the spot activists A lot of inexpensive city hotels and appropriate infrastructure.
- Fethiye – a very beautiful and natural place, here already begins the atmosphere of a European vacation.
The Aegean coast of Turkey (Bodrum, Marmaris), we do not advise in October, because it is colder and, in general, it is already off-season.
Rest in Turkey with children in October
One of the most important factors when choosing a hotel by the sea for a family vacation with children is the beach – it is desirable that it was sandy. And the kids should not be bored, because because of the vagaries of the weather the possibility of bathing in the sea will not always be, and to choose what to eat, if the first 10 dishes are not satisfied. There’s no time to write a whole review of children’s holidays in Turkey, which we did : )
Where is the best place in Turkey with children?
Side is ideal – fine sand and no sharp inputs into the sea, in addition, there are no bars and discos. A great place for a relaxing holiday in Turkey with children in October.
If you take into account the reviews of tourists, it is very popular Kamelya World chain, which consists of three hotels – Kamelya, Fulya and Selin. In Kamelya children will love undoubtedly: a water park with slides!
In Alanya family travelers mention Avsallar and Incekum area – good beaches and decent hotels (for example, 5* Azura and 5* Oz Hotels Incekum)
Belek is also suitable for holidays with children, the hotel Mega Saray offers as a children’s menu porridge and soup, the beach at the hotel is sandy, in addition, a large number of Russian families will allow older children to make friends.
Entertainment in Turkey – what to do?
We went to the Aquapark Legend tour for $ 55 per person (all day).
In addition to the traditional activities (diving and riding “bananas”), do not forget that you get to one of the most ancient lands. Visit the ruins of ancient Troy and the Temple of Artemis at Ephesus (which we know is one of the wonders of the world). It’s also worth a trip to Pamukale ($50), a plateau with salt deposits. In early October, outside of the Turkish heat, you’ll be able to enjoy this place to the fullest.
What else to see in Turkey:
Alanya: the Dimcay and Yalan Caves; the fortress; the Alanya sulfur spring (smells unpleasant, but comes out beautifully in photos)
Kemer: Lycian Tombs; Mira Theatre
Belek: The Land of Legends water park ($60 per adult, $48 per child)
You can get to all this by excursion or rent a car on your own at Localrent, which is the only aggregator that accepts Russian cards. But apart from this pleasant fact, it’s a great service – we even wrote a detailed article about our experience with them to rent a car in Turkey (with routes, Turkish driving characteristics and tips).
Pluses and minuses of the holiday
The most important plus of a vacation in Turkey is the absence of a visa regime with Russia. It saves both time and budget for planning a vacation. As well as Tunisia or Cyprus, where in October is equally good.
The subtropical climate of Turkey is also a plus. Due to high humidity acclimatization is easier for all family members (including toddlers and older people), compared, for example, with Egypt, and if you think where to go with your child, feel free to stay in Turkey.
The food system “all inclusive” – a plus for the vacation, you can enjoy unlimited juices, snacks and seasonal fruits.
The disadvantage of rest in Turkey is the great popularity of the country – in the high season a free place in the sun to find quite difficult. But this does not apply to those who decided to rest in Turkey in October – the “peak” tourist activity is over, and the resorts are not so crowded.
Reviews about Turkey in October
In addition to walks, the promenade of Side is great for morning jogging
If we look through the reviews of tourists on the query “weather”, what we see. In Side in October, a sudden storm can mar the holiday. In Kemer and Alanya, the rains begin to fall in mid-autumn, the temperature also drops. At the beginning of the month in all the districts of Kemer (Beldibi, Geynyuk, Tekirova) the weather is fine and the rains fall only on 2-3 days, which you should dedicate to a visit to the hamam and the stores. Belek can be upsetting with wind and chilly periods of the sea.
In addition, in Turkey in October, the daylight hours are short enough, so carefully plan the evening at leisure.

One of the beaches of Alanya in October (Okurcalar)
At this time of day in Turkey, it is warm but not hot. The highest temperature in Alanya and Side is +25.8 ° C. But in the resorts of the Black Sea and Marmara in the evening will be useful to wear a light windbreaker. In late October, closer to November, rains and storms are frequent guests.
I vacationed on the Antalya coast in late July, August and early September. Each vacation was a success, but the sticky heat, heat and stuffiness occasionally bored me. So next time I plan to go in mid-autumn.

Choose Belek for the good 5* hotels, wide sandy beaches and mild climate. The main contingent – families with children and older couples. The resort of premium class, so the trips here are not cheap.

A versatile resort that won’t hit the wallet. Sandy beaches with a “blue flag”, a lot of greenery and excellent infrastructure. There is also a lot to see: an ancient fortress, cable car, salt cave, museum, and the valley of Dim Chai. In October it is the warmest here.
People go to Side for a lazy quiet rest on the beach: sandy beaches and shallow entrance to the water. There are few entertainments: Manavgat waterfall and the historical center with antique buildings. To diversify the cultural program you can take excursions.
Mountains and vegetation of Kemer
Kemer is pebble beaches, green mountain ranges and youth hangouts after sunset. You can diversify this program by taking a ride in the ancient town of Fazelis and a cable car up the mountain Tahtali.
“European” resort, popular among young people because of the endless partying. There is a quiet sea, sand and pebble beaches, clubs and bars.

The best excursions
Another interesting excursion – Chimera Mountain, where the fire burns / Church of St. Nicholas the Wonderworker in the Demre-Mira-Kekova trip program
September and October is a good time for excursions. The sun is no longer as active, there is no heat, you can safely walk around the local relics.
|But still do not ignore the protection and bring a hat. Even in the fall in Turkey, you can get burned or catch heat stroke.|
I suggest you look for trips in advance and online at special services:
The choice depends on the location of your vacation. It is wider for the Aegean and Mediterranean coast. Excursions include trips to historical sites as well as something more active and extreme.

|Demre-Mira-Kekova||€60 per person|

Where is the best place in Turkey with children in October?
The Road in the Lara District of Antalya
Turkey with kids in October can be a great idea because of the mild weather and the small (compared to summer) flow of holidaymakers. Based on tourists’ reviews, I’ve chosen the three best resorts, geared for a vacation with the little ones:
- Belek – where the clean sandy beaches with safe entrance to the sea and 5-star hotels with an entertainment program for children. Plus: the resort is close to Antalya Airport (35 km). Minus: the rest is not budget – the wallet here is noticeably thinner.
- Side is a quiet holiday away from the big resorts. Wide beaches with clean sand and shallow entrance to the sea attached. Pros: a quiet holiday without the fuss and the proximity of Alanya (60 km). Minus: a modest list of entertainment.
- Alanya – in short: a well-developed infrastructure, a lot of activities and a relatively low price tag. With children is best to relax on the beaches of the east coast. Plus: the southernmost (= warm) point of Turkey. Minus: the distance from the airport (2 hours) and a poor choice of 5 * hotels.
Turkey in early October will be a good decision – the chance of running into weather surprises is not so great. In the middle and close to the end of the month there is a chance to catch some rain in the Mediterranean. And on the Black Sea and Marmara coast the temperature difference between day and evening is too sharp for a comfortable holiday with a child.
Good family hotels (listed cost per parent and baby):
✓ 4* Serra Garden – from 72,000 rubles
4* Artemis Princess – from 77 000 rubles
Tourist reviews of Turkey in October
Reviews of tourists in 2022 confirm – vacation in Turkey in October in many ways wins before the summer. Tourists note that the weather is pleasant and disposes to excursions, and the warm sea – to swimming. It rains for a couple of hours in Alanya and Side and sometimes downpours for 1-2 days in Kemer. The evenings are cool, so it is worth taking warm clothes.
Pluses and minuses of the holiday
The non-tourist part of Bodrum, not far from the port.
Experienced tourists note the following advantages of rest in October:
+ no exhausting summer heat
+ bargain shopping – at the end of the season sells goods for half price
+ No endless crowds of tourists, like in summer.
+ travel is cheap compared to the summer.
And there are no minuses:
– tired by the end of the season animation in hotels
– rains and storms
– the evenings are cool
– the buffet is less varied if the hotel is not crowded with tourists
– Some hotels quietly remove sun beds, tents, etc.
Very briefly . It is obvious that the combination “Turkey, vacation, October” is attractive on several points at once: not hot weather and warm sea, low prices and noticeably smaller flow of tourists.
