What’s the weather like in Marmaris in May?
Marmaris has typical Mediterranean weather as it’s on Turkey’s Turquoise Coast. The resort town has long and hot summers, and you’ll find temperatures are really picking up in May as the peak months get closer. You’ll have lots of sun and not much rain if you’re going at this time. Marmaris is in a sheltered bay surrounded by mountains, which will protect you from northern and Mediterranean winds. If you prefer cooler temperatures and fewer crowds compared to summer, this is a fantastic time for you to visit.
The average high in Marmaris is 26ºC in May, which is lovely for relaxing on the beach or by the pool. This cools to 13ºC at night so you should bring some warmer clothes for the evenings. The sea temperature is 20ºC, while humidity’s low. There’s 29mm of rain over five days, and you can expect 14 hours of daylight with ten hours of sunshine each day. UV levels will be very high so remember to bring your sun cream. The sun goes down just after 8pm through much of the month.
