When to go to Kusadasi?


The best time to visit Kusadasi (Turkish Aegean) is between June and September. The excellent Mediterranean weather conditions ensure a first-class holiday experience. The water temperatures never fall below 16 °C during the course of the year and even reach values of up to 25 °C in the months of July to September. Nothing stands in the way of extensive bathing in the Mediterranean.

The mild nightly temperatures also invite you to stay outside in the evening. In the months November to March we advise against a trip to Kusadasi. Temperatures are now falling significantly and the likelihood of precipitation is increasing considerably. In December, up to 5.98 in can fall on 14 rainy days in the Turkish Aegean.
