The best time of year to visit Bodrum will depend on what you’re looking for in your Turkish holiday. The sun is at its hottest and longest in summer obviously but can often climb to an unforgiving 34ºC which may mean you are restricted in your activities due to the sheer heat. Springtime and autumn are both still very pleasant when it’s warm but still cool enough to visit the sights and enjoy the ruins before putting out the beach blanket.
In the winter months it can rain more often but with a lowest average temperature of 15°C in February it’s still very pleasant and you’ll be able to take advantage of the smaller crowds and better hotel rates.
Our suggestion? Book for Club Med’s Bodrum Palmiye resort when it opens in May and you’ll have the perfect base for Bodrum where you can relax, enjoy the sunshine when you want it and experience luxury every day.
