What’s the weather like in Marmaris in October?
Marmaris is on Turkey’s southwestern Turquoise Coast, which means it has long and hot summers that stretch into October. Although temperatures are cooling down as the month goes on, it’s still warm, and you’ll get plenty of sun despite the fact there’s more rain in autumn compared to summer.
Marmaris has quite typical Mediterranean weather with hot summers and mild winters. If you’re not bothered about really high temperatures and prefer things to be quieter, you’ll love it here in October. The town’s on the stunning Turkish Riviera in a sheltered bay. Together with the surrounding mountains, this keeps temperatures from cooling too much because of winds from both the north and the Mediterranean to the south.
The average high in Marmaris during October’s a lovely 26ºC, although it gets quite cool in the evenings at 13ºC. The sea temperature’s still 24ºC which is perfect for swimming, while humidity’s low. Average rainfall’s 78mm over six rainy days. You can look forward to 11 hours of daylight with eight hours of sunshine each day. UV levels will be moderate. Sunset’s just before 7pm at the start of the month, and just after 5pm by the end of October due to daylight saving.
Things to Do
Enjoy a long day at the beach or waterpark such as Atlantis or Aqua Dream. The cooler weather’s ideal for visiting attractions like the 16th century Marmaris Castle, while you won’t feel as bad for being indoors at a hammam, also known as a Turkish bath. Marmaris has a great nightlife to get stuck into, while water sports are very popular and the resort has over 50 dive spots.
