Tourist season in Kemer
The history of Kemer as an attractive tourist destination began 15 years ago, when it is literally in front of his eyes from an unremarkable village into a popular place on the Turkish Riviera. Those who are looking for a relaxing holiday surrounded by picturesque scenery come here. There are wide sandy and pebbly beaches, washed by the strikingly blue waters of the bay, a huge selection of stores, bars and restaurants, and a great climate. Today Kemer is a thriving and confident resort area, where the tourist season lasts from April to October.
There is a special influx of tourists in Kemer during the summer months, especially in July and August. It is quite hot weather when the temperature of the sea reaches its maximum. This is a great time for both classic “sealift” recreation and active sports such as diving, snorkeling, surfing, jet skiing and so on. The nightlife in high season is very active and includes both regular discos and traditional oriental nights with belly dancing and traditional music concerts. In July and August in Kemer is quite crowded, but because of the large number of hotels of impressive size, it is not felt at all. Among the vacationers are mainly Germans, Belgians, British, Russians and Ukrainians.
The decline in tourist activity occurs in November, most people return home – the beach and velvet season has long since come to an end. The low season will last until April. Nevertheless, hotels here continue to operate in the winter. And to say that they are empty is impossible, because often contrary to all forecasts are very warm days. Many travel agencies arrange good sales of their packages, and as a result both airfare and a week of staying in a 5 * hotel on the system “All Inclusive” costs mere pennies. In addition, SPA-services, which are provided in every Turkish hotel, will cost much cheaper in the low season.
Beach season in Kemer
Beach season in Kemer begins in early May, when the sea water temperature warms up to 20 ° C. In the middle of the month it reaches 21 ° C – 22 ° C, and with this opens the swimming season. On the beaches rest people of different age categories, among which there are a large number of couples with small children. In July and August, that is, at the height of summer, the water in the Mediterranean Sea is more like fresh milk – from 27 ° C to 29 ° C, and sometimes as much as 30 ° C. In fact, such water is not refreshing in the midday heat, when the temperature is just “off the scale”. The weather is more comfortable in September, and the temperature of the sea drops to 26 ° C – 27 ° C. In October, you swim until the last days of the month, after which the season closes.
The unbearable heat is over, the sun is less invasive and the beaches are less crowded. The velvet season is one of the most beautiful periods not only in Kemer, but in all of Turkey. It begins with the first month of autumn. This is really a very advantageous time when all the same resort options are available as in summer, only under more favorable conditions. The temperature of the sea water is about 26 ° C. October is the second month of the Velvet season, when the weather tames its heat by about 5 °C, but it’s still warm and very nice, unless it gets a little cooler in the evenings. At the end of October from the beaches disappear last sun beds, which will appear again only in May.
The best time for excursions
There are many interesting natural beauties lurking around Kemer, pick the best time to visit them and you will be very happy!
Despite the fact that Kemer is a thriving modern resort, there are many interesting attractions. For example, an ethnographic park “Yoryuk”, which clearly demonstrates the peculiarities of life of nomadic Turkmen tribes. Children will love the reptile park “Eco-Park” and the entertainment complex “Moonlight”, which has a dolphinarium. From Kemer it is easy to go on excursions to the neighboring Antalya, the ancient city of Phaselis or Olympos. In general, you will not get bored. The main task to be solved is to choose the most suitable time for excursions so that the weather or something else does not cross out all your plans. In fact, everything is quite simple: in April, May, in the second half of September and in October there is every opportunity for unhindered sightseeing, both from the weather and from the tourist infrastructure.
Time for holidays and festivals
The summer in Kemer is full of music concerts, dance festivals and various festivals. Every year there are new events that are announced just before the opening of the tourist season. Among the regular events are the “International Days of the Sea”, when mass diving takes place and the art festival “Phaselis”. The “World Rally Championship” as well as the “Altyn Nar” entertainment carnival with a tourist bias takes place near Kemer.
The climate in Kemer
Located right at the foot of the Taurus Mountains, on the banks of the Bay of Antalya, Kemer enjoys a Mediterranean type of climate with a distinct monsoon character. This means hotter, less humid summers but cooler winters than in neighboring Antalya.
Kemer in spring
Spring in Kemer is a gorgeous time that comes to the resort in March with temperatures hovering around 17 °C to 18 °C. This is a slightly rainy month but by April the weather is almost summer-like. The citrus trees are finishing blooming and the steep hilltops are once again drowned in green and bright colors of fresh flowers. The mountain air is clean and fresh, and it seems that all life around picks up the cheerful mood that hovers here and charges it to everyone who comes here. Spring – it’s time to travel around the neighborhood and natural attractions, and just beautiful places. You can not come to Kemer, and do not climb on a cable car to the highest peak of Southern Turkey – Mount Tahtali, which offers an amazing panoramic view of the Mediterranean Sea and many beautiful bays with azure waters. In May, when there is a sudden jump in temperature, the bathing season opens. This is not actually the end of spring, but the very beginning of summer.

Kemer in Summer
Summers in Kemer tend to be sunny and sultry. It’s not uncommon for the predicted daytime temperatures of 30 °C – 33 °C to cross that mark, reaching all 37 °C – 40 °C. During daylight hours, when the sun is at its most active, avoid spending too much time outdoors, and use quality sunscreens with a high UV factor. Bathing in the Mediterranean Sea, which gets as warm as 26°C to 29°C in July and August, should not be considered an effective way to cool off. Air conditioning in restaurants, cafes and hotels is probably the only saving option. In the evening the air cools down a bit, this is the time of discos and parties in nightclubs.

Kemer in Autumn
Do you want a more relaxing holiday? Head to Kemer in early autumn, which absorbed all the best climatic “qualities” of summer, leaving behind the most unacceptable for a comfortable holiday “features”. It is a particularly splendid time for leisurely strolls along the elegant harbor, with snow-white yachts gently rocking in the turquoise waters. Numerous bars and restaurants lined up along the waterfront, beckoning with the aromatic scents of delicious food. Children and adults will love the local water park, the line at which is not as long as in summer. Day trips to neighboring towns and villages also no one cancelled. In October and November, light rains begin to fall, but the weather is still sunny and warm, except that the nights are getting cool.

Kemer in winter
In winter, the temperature in Kemer drops sharply to 14 °C – 16 °C during the day. It is considered a rather rainy time, and there is not much to do in Kemer. But this is just a summary of the weather forecast. In reality the picture, described by many tourists holidaying in Kemer in winter, is quite different and rosier. It does rain – in two days, and every other day. However they are of short duration, after which the weather is mostly cloudy, and sometimes very sunny and clear. Secondly, this winter sun is not as safe as it may seem, so going to Kemer in winter, do not be lazy to throw in your suitcase sunscreen, sunglasses and light sports clothes. You can get burnt on a sunny January day. Sometimes the temperature reaches as much as 19 degrees Celsius. At this time to distinguish “our” from the “Turks” (not only judging by appearance) is very simple – locals wear jackets, and Russians – in T-shirts and light pants. Some particularly intrepid individuals are seen swimming in the sea. But to repeat their feat is not worth – you can catch a cold. At night the air cools to 5 ° C – 7 ° C. At this time the mountain peaks are always covered with snow.
