Antalya in May
If we were to choose the perfect month to visit Antalya, it would definitely be May! The weather is mild and the days are long and sunny. Unfortunately, this is also the month in which there are large tour groups that start to visit Antalya, making it crowded but no worries except ancient cities and touristic places Antalya is a huge city to cover you all. Antalya is a big people-pleaser, in the evening, you can take long, romantic walks and enjoy dinner in relative peace.
It’s your chance to admire orange blossoms at botanic gardens, take nature-filled walks in Duden park and Konyaalti Beach and enjoy a long, lazy brunch at an outdoor table.
What to Pack
All you need is summer clothes: sort sleeves and pants, sandals, and"obviously"your bathing suit! Don't forget to throw in a light jacket or wrap for the evenings, when temperatures can dip. Many restaurants and clubs require long pants for men in the evening.
