For many, late September and October are the best months to visit Fethiye for a final blast of energizing autumn sunshine.

What better place is there to relax? The choice is yours – you can lie on the beach, go sailing, or maybe go trekking on coastal trails like the Lycian Way, to top up your vitamin D levels. It’s the best for of sunshine therapy and a great way to store up some energy for those long, dark winter months in northern Europe.

This is the time to visit Fethiye if you’re looking for peace and quiet. The beaches are quieter – the kids are back at school after all. A day spent lazing on the beach, whether it’s Kıdrak, Ölüdeniz or Çalış, is a great way to relax and boost your energy levels.

What’s more, the sea is warm and the days and a perfect blend of warm daytime sun and cooler evenings.

During September and October the temperatures in Fethiye are usually in the mid to high 20s and occasionally even reaches the low 30s during the daytime. The evenings are cooler than the high season, falling to the low to mid 20s during the evening and night. For people who find themselves suffering from SAD (seasonal affective disorder) during the winter months in northern climes, Fethiye is the place to come to avoid (or at least delay) those gloomy feelings.

A great time for trekking

Planning to visit Fethiye?

If you are planning to visit Fethiye, there are special offers for flights to Dalaman this autumn but do try to shop around and book in advance, if possible. At the moment at least, it seems to be a good idea to organise your travel in advance rather than leave it to the last minute.
