Best time to visit Dalaman
The weather on the Turquoise Coast, as it is known, is favourable for holidays all year, but is most pleasant during the seven months of the holiday season from April to October. It has a typically Mediterranean climate with warm-to-hot summers – at its hottest from June to September – and mild winters. The peak temperatures at the height of summer, during July and August, often reach 35 degrees; during winter, from December to February the average temperature is around 17 degrees: highly preferable to the UK weather at that time. This makes Dalaman a great location for a last minute holiday.
Hotels and Apartments in Dalaman
Accommodation comes in all shapes and sizes. In Olu Deniz, for example, there are many hotels, apartments and villas including the luxury complex, Club Belcekiz Beach Hotel, with over 200 rooms, an adults-only pool, separate from the main one, and a world-class restaurant. Alternately, the much smaller Otel Seden, which has just one swimming pool and a far more modest menu, offers the opportunity for a cheap family holiday, although the best deals are often obtained by going all inclusive. Olu Deniz is perfect for travellers wishing to visit the famous Blue Lagoon, which is one of the most often-photographed spots in the world. Apartments can be a very good cheap alternative to hotels and are often in locations that allow good access to all the major amenities. The resort of Fethiye offers a good choice of apartments, which often include on-site pools and apartments consisting of one or two bedrooms, with a lounge, kitchen and bathroom, allowing the visitor to be self contained.
Best time to book your summer 2016 Dalaman holiday
If you book a 2016 holiday early, with A1 Travel, you can get the best deals available and you are more likely to get the package holiday that suits your needs whats more you can take advantage of a low deposit and spread the cost with easy monthly payments. For example, A1 Travel can make sure that families stay in one of the many complexes with kids clubs, such as up in the hills at Hisaronu, leaving you free to make the most of other amenities that can be found in Dalaman resorts, such as swimming pools, tennis courts and Turkish baths. Dalaman’s nightlife buzzes, with lively clubs, discos and bars in every resort. Some hotels offer a childminding service that frees you up to enjoy a night out or two, even if you have your family with you. Not that there aren’t plenty of places to enjoy yourself with the children, such as Aqualand water park and dolphinarium in Kas, which has pools, slides and rides to suit everybody from young to old. In fact, there are water parks all over Dalaman and if your resort doesn’t have one, you can be sure that there will be frequent transport available to one nearby.
In Dalaman, you should make the most of the beaches. Dalyan, for example, not only has a great range of beach sports and tours of the river, but is also the site of a breeding ground for the endangered loggerhead turtle. Many of Dalaman’s beaches have been awarded the Blue Flag for cleanliness and quality, such as the pretty, pebble-strewn beach just next to Kalkan’s harbour. With sun beds and canopies for hire, plenty of cafés nearby and a sloping seabed that makes it safer for small children, this is a great beach for families.
Experience the culture and beauty of the Dalaman region with A1 Travel
Whether you’re alone or travelling with family or friends, there are many festivals and events that might appeal to you, including the Culture Festival in May and a couple of unusual, food-based celebrations dedicated to mushrooms and tomatoes! You’re not likely to encounter these anywhere else, because Dalaman marches to the beat of its own drum, or belly-dances to it, since that’s part of the local culture. There are several celebrations during the height of the holiday season, from April to October; the Kas Lycian Festival of dancing offers the perfect opportunity to frequent street food stalls and the Marmaris Spring and Yacht Festivals, in April and May respectively, draw in a lively crowd.
