Tantalising Turkey

Whether you consider yourself a beach bum, a culture vulture or a culinary fanatic, Turkey holidays are guaranteed to fit your bill, serving up everything from white sandy beaches and secluded bays, to immense historical sites and wonderful cultural environments. Relaxation and exploration tend to go hand in hand in Turkey, from delving into the culture and comfort of a traditional Turkish bath to admiring the ancient ruins scattered before you as you dine on delicious Turkish grub.

Beach breaks come as consistently as city breaks across Turkey, ensuring the country boasts countless things to do for all manner of holidaymakers. Traditions partner wonderfully with modern infrastructure and luxury, from the bustling bazaars where you can haggle for a bargain to the tourist-driven resorts where you can look to indulge during your holidays to Turkey – this is a country of immensely rewarding variety.

Wonderful Beach Indulgence

There are few locations across Europe that will rival Turkey when it comes to beach holidays, and you’ll be spoilt for choice in the country alone given its endless coastline and stunning beach resorts. Turkey Antalya area is an immensely popular spot, combining the typical allure of the beach with the curious presence of archaeological discoveries. Bask in the beautiful Mediterranean offerings at Lara Beach, while the area is blessed by the presence of the intriguing medieval fortifications of Alanya.

If the Turkey Antalya area doesn’t quite cut it for your Turkey holidays, then perhaps the Dalaman area will? The area mirrors Antalya in its diversity, sending you from bright lights and blue seas to authentic towns and historical sites in just a matter of minutes. Marmaris is the perfect destination for night owls, boasting a vibrant nightlife and dining scene which is guaranteed to inject a lively atmosphere into your trip, while those looking for action and adventure by the water would do well in spending their holidays in Olu Deniz, famed for its gorgeous Blue Lagoon and a vibrant water sports scene. Turkey’s Bodrum area also ticks all the boxes of a sun, sand and sea-filled escape, combining the allure of gorgeous beaches, exciting water sports and bustling nightlife to deliver an unprecedented holiday experience by the ocean.

Culture and History

It is easy to relax during your holidays in Turkey, given the wonderful Mediterranean climate and the superb infrastructure found in hotels, eateries and spa facilities. The hot summers make for ideal sunbathing weather, and you’ll never have to look far to find a sun lounger on the sand or next to the pool when you holiday by the sea. If you need a break from your holiday novel you can venture into the azure waters, ensuring you can always cool off with a swim in-between refreshing drinks or naps in the sunshine.

While becoming rejuvenated or indulging in the offerings of Turkey’s coastal scene are an attractive prospect, there is much culture, history and heritage to be discovered throughout the country, fascinating culture vultures and even beach bums if they give this realm of Turkey a chance. Istanbul is one of the most incredible cities in the world, straddling Asia and Europe, it is a melting pot of culture, history and ideologies. The range of fascinating sites is endless, spanning Roman, Byzantine and Ottoman periods, while meandering around the city will see you encounter immense mosques, old city features and bustling bazaars. The general Turkey Istanbul area is awash with culture and beauty. From surrounding beach resorts to authentic village and town communities, there are countless day trip options out of the city that will allow you an even greater impression on your Turkey holidays. Ankara, the country’s capital, is another engrossing city featuring a number of breath-taking landmarks and sites. Don’t miss the mesmerising Column of Julian the Apostate, Kemal Ataturk’s Mausoleum and the Kocatepe Mosque.
