Geographical location is one of the most important factors shaping the individuals, society and state. It can bring many advantages or disadvantages. Beyşehir is very lucky in respect of geography.

The city is located in the cavity between Western Taurus mountains. The majority of this cavity is covered by Beyşehir Lake. In the southeast of this cavity there lies Beyşehir plain. Taurus mountains descend to the plain with high and steep shapes from west and southwest. The plain areas in Beyşehir stretch as moors. The surrounding mountains, on the other hand, are covered with forests. Soils are very fertile.
Beyşehir is like a closed basin surrounded by Taurus mountains in south and west, Erenler in east and Sultan Mountain in north. Beyşehir Lake adds a quite distinctive feature to this basin covering an area of 651 km2. Taurus mountains in south and west open up like a fan under various names. Kartos, Dedegöl, Dumanlı and Naldöken are some of these hills. The highest point is 2890 m Dippoyraz Hill on Anamas Mountains.
Being located in Göller Yöresi (Lakes Area) in Mediterranean Region, Beyşehir is located on the crossroads. When the southern end is taken as basis, the distance to Mediterranean is around 65 km. Blocking just like a set, Taurus Mountains separate the region from Mediterranean Sea.

It is surrounded by Konya in the east, Doğanhisar, Hüyük and Ilgın in the north, Derbent from northeast, Şarkiaraağaç and Eğirdir in northwest, Yenişarbademli in the west, Sütçüler in the southwest, Derebucak in the south and Seydişehir in southeast.
The climate is of transitive character between Mediterranean and Central Anatolia regions and summers are short, cool and arid while winters are cold.
The region’s climate is affected by the lake while Central Anatolia climate is dominant when you move further from the lake. The lake is surrounded by forest consisting of pine, cedar, juniper, fir and oak trees.
