The season extends from April to November. By mid-May the sea has warmed up with the days long and sunny. June is perhaps the most perfect month with balmy evenings and delightfully warm seas. In July and August are not unbearably hot, as the prevailing winds are cool and refreshing, the nights comfortable. September is always popular with temperatures similar to the June. In October the sea is still delightfully warm and in spite of the possibility of the odd shower temperatures are usually in the high 67 F / 19 C.
The prevailing wind is North-Westerly but tends to blow up the Gulfs of Gokova and Datca from the West. Typically it picks up at 11.00 hrs and force four or five is quite normal in the afternoon. In the evening it drops to give a calm night. There is good exhilarating sailing throughout the season, although July and August are the months of the strongest wind.
