The gorgeous Mediterranean Coast of Turkey has something for everyone. Perfect for a beach getaway, there are miles of fine sand just ready to dig your toes into! There's also plenty to tempt you away from the beach... For explorers, the coastline is backed by the fantastic Taurus Mountains with hidden away villages well-worth a look, as well as many historic sites and ruins to discover. And for shopaholics, get haggling and experience the atmosphere of a traditional Turkish bazaar!
For a great chillout day, explore Turkey's Mediterranean Coast! Visit the stunning Blue Lagoon at Olu Deniz beach; swim in its calm turquoise waters and take in the fantastic scenery. Enjoy a boat trip from Gocek and cruise round 12 stunning islands, then top up your tan on your pick of secluded beaches - or cool off by snorkelling along the beautiful shoreline. Venture into the mountainside ghost village at Kaya Koy to discover 100's of deserted houses and eerie churches!
Why not stretch out on one of the fabulous beaches or coves lining the coast? Take it easy on Patara beach near Kalkan - a stunning Loggerhead turtle nesting spot with miles of sand dunes, mountain views and unspoilt golden sands. Spend the day on gorgeous Gemiler beach at Kaya, have a bite to eat in a beachside restaurant and take snaps of uninhabited St Nicholas island in the bay. Or visit Kidrak beach near Olu Deniz - the blue sea and white sandy shore is gorgeous!
For a great choice of international and Turkish restaurants, lively bars and laid-back cafés, head to Hisaronu! Find vibrant nightspots or a quiet riverside restaurant near the incredible Rock Tombs at Dalyan. If you fancy eating a fantastic meal at a waterfront marina, Gocek is the place to go! Tuck into a traditional Turkish moussaka or fresh fish dish, then stroll along the marina to see the stunning yachts...
Haggle to your heart's content in one of the local weekly bazaars! Visit the biggest at Fethiye to browse the colourful stalls packed with fresh fruit, fish and spices, or snap up some local handicrafts for souvenirs. Check out the maze of shops in Fethiye's Old Town for fantastic jewellery, hand-painted ceramics and glass eye lucky charms! At Hisaronu, barter for amazing leather goods and buy some traditional Turkish Delight...
