Sailing season - When to charter in Mugla ?
The sun never stops in Mugla - it is possible to swim in the sea all year long, thanks to the strong prevailing Mediterranean climate. Long summers are characterized by very hot air temperatures, long dry spells and low winds, with winters being relatively mild and wet. Near the coast these conditions are to be expected, but the inland mountainous terrain is dominated by a more continental climate. It would be best to visit Mugla in September and in November, because the sun is still strong and can be enjoyed throughout your whole stay, but the majority of tourists leave by this time, so the prices for numerous services plummet. Between May and August, it could get too hot for some travellers to handle, so it is best to put this fact into consideration when planning a vacation in Mugla.
