Dalyan Weather in Summer
The summer period is ideal for those visitors who want to come to Dalyan to enjoy the warm land and sea temperatures, and of course dry weather.

Rainfall is almost nonexistent, so don’t worry- you’ll get to enjoy 13-14 hours of sunshine each day.
Dalyan Weather in Autumn
Autumn months are still great to visit since there are fewer crowds and prices are a bit lower. You will get shorter lines and more efficient service that can pay you more personal attention.

Sea temperatures are getting cooler( they might drop from 25°C to 21°C) and you might not be able to swim over this period. However, you can spend time exploring the beautiful landscapes and enjoying the stunning sea views while eating at the traditional Turkish taverns.
