The sweltering heat is no longer there, but all the main “highlights” of Turkish resorts have not gone away, including first-class service. Another plus is the ability to avoid the hustle and bustle of the high tourist season, because, whatever one may say, there are fewer tourists on the coast. Some people just need a vacation like this. And it turns out on a budget.
Another important advantage of the velvet season is rest without noisy, always fussing and noisy children and sometimes overly active student youth. As they say, there is a time for everything. Therefore, some people like to relax in the velvet season - mostly middle and older. They do not need noisy youth parties - discos and parties.

The velvet season in Turkey is not only an opportunity to soak up the sun, swim in the still warm sea, take exciting walks on a yacht, but also admire local attractions without fear of the harsh rays of the sun. The humidity of the air during this period of time decreases - therefore, it is a pleasure to spend time with a glass of good wine on the open terrace of the restaurant, talking leisurely with your soulmate. However, when preparing for a “velvet” vacation, you should not neglect warm clothes, because the night temperature in October can drop to 13-15 degrees.
Precipitation during the Turkish velvet season on the coast is extremely rare. Perhaps the only exception is the Black Sea coast of Turkey, but on the Mediterranean and the Aegean coast the weather is less “wailing”. A nice bonus is freedom of movement - this means that in Turkish hotels you do not have to fight for sun loungers on the beaches, take early seats at the pool or stand in line at a restaurant or snack bar. Almost until the end of October, you can swim in the sea in the resorts of Alanya, Antalya, Kemer, Belek and Side.
