WHEN TO GO
Summer sun is pretty much a given in Dalaman. Expect day after day of blue skies, temperatures that top 30˚C and up to 12 hours of sun a day. The weather is warm enough for a spring or autumn escape, too – you’ll still get 6 or 7 hours of sun every day, and the thermometer usually hovers around 25˚C.
