What’s the weather like in Alanya in December?
The Alanya weather in December is mild with a good amount of sunshine. Many visitors enjoy coming to this Turkish Riviera resort in the Antalya region because, even though it’s winter, Alanya can still have fine warm days. It’s the wettest month of the year and you’ll need to bring a jacket.
Alanya is on the south west coast of Turkey, beside the Gulf of Antayla and the Mediterranean Sea. The picturesque Taurus Mountains are located directly behind the town. These hills help to block some of the colder winds that may sweep across Turkey from the north in December.
Even though it’s the wettest time of the year, with an average of 278mm of rain across more than 20 rainy days, the temperatures are still mild compared to northern Europe. The weather in Alanya in December hits an average daytime high temperature of 17°C and the sunshine lasts for around nine hours each day. The sun doesn’t set until 5.45pm at the end of December. The temperature of the Mediterranean Sea will be about 19°C, so you may need a layer if you fancy a dip. If you go out in the evening for a walk or a meal you should take a sweater or light jacket, as it can fall to 10°C.
