The weather in Fethiye is a big draw in a town with lots of big draws. Fethiye, located in the Mugla province on the Aegean coast of Turkey is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Turkey.
The Fethiye climate is humid and dry, with a little more rain and a little more breeze than you get on the Med. It still has around 300 days of sunshine per year; its long summer and long season making it very popular with property buyers.
For example, today the weather in Fethiye is as follows:
- 15 degrees centigrade
- 5km winds
Arguably this is the perfect holiday weather, not too hot but far from cold.
The climate, along with the hospitality of the local population have made Fethiye very popular with British tourists. According to Wikipedia, some 7 thousand Brits currently live in Fethiye and a further 600,000 visit the town every summer. In fact, British tourism and emigrate to Fethiye grew so rapidly in the early-mid noughties that Fethiye-Oludeniz was chosen as the best tourism spot in the world by both the Guardian and the Times newspapers in 2007.
Olu Deniz in particular is known the world over for its natural beauty, so much so that it is protected by the government. The rarity of property to buy in Olu Deniz, while there is plenty of property for sale in Fethiye is another reason for its popularity with tourists and holiday home buyers.
