Alanya Weather in Winter
Hello all you good people,

For those of you familiar or residing around and south of Alanya - could you advise what is the weather and climate actaully like in winters? Do you need the heating on? Where are the warmest coastal areas off the Turkish Med. during winters?

All help gratefully received.

Hi Tazz

It can be beautiful in Alanya during the Winter, days sunny enough to walk around in Tee shirts or if you are brave enough to go swimming in the sea!! It does get cold at night (around 9 deg). Last Winter was awful, it started raining in late December and we had really wet weather until end of March. The locals did say it was the worse Winter they had known for years and I'm hoping that this Winter will be drier. It's still a lot better than UK though.

I have lived here in Antalya for the past 5 years.We didn't experience the Alanya rain last winter as ours was quite dry it just rained a bit in Jan/Feb which is to be expected.The best thing for me is the fact that it may rain for a day or so and then lovely sunny warm weather to compensate for a few more days.I have been told on good authority that Antalya has an average of 320 sunny days a year and I am quite sure that is correct.

Hi Tazz,
The South coast of Turkey is definitely the warmest part of Turkey, and in winter places like Alanya and Antalya have a mixture of sunny and rainy days but invariably very cold nights. When the sun shines it feels lovely and warm, when it rains for days on end it can get very miserable. We live in Side (half way between Antalya and Alanya) and I have seen ice on the swimming pool in the morning (in January). So, yes this is the warmest area of Turkey, but you definitely need heating for the cold evenings and nights and a nice warm duvet for sleeping.
