The Turquoise Coast

The area around Dalaman has been dubbed the Turquoise Coast thanks to its pristine Mediterranean waters. A smorgasbord of resorts has sprung up along its shores, from bustling favourite Marmaris to new kid on the block Sarigerme. Take a look around this remarkable region, and you won’t be disappointed.

Beaches galore

The entire coast is strung with beautiful beaches, from sun bed-strewn stretches of sand to tucked-away coves only accessible by boat. It’s also home to the Blue Lagoon – a strong contender for the title of world’s best beach. Wherever you wander, you’ll find the right spot for you.

Explore the past

Scattered among the modern resorts are the remains of awe-inspiring ancient civilisations – especially those of the Romans and the Lycians, who were the area’s original inhabitants. Plus the mountains that act as the mighty backdrop the coast are home to hosts of traditional hamlets just waiting to be explored.

Marmaris

A big-time favourite, Marmaris has some of the most beautiful beaches on the Mediterranean coast and a pumping nightlife scene to boot.

Olu Deniz

Olu Deniz is famed for its blue lagoon nestling behind the end of a beach, backed by a mesmerising mountain range.

Icmeler

Icmeler may be lively, but it’s got an old village within it and nature close by.

Hisaronu

A hip and happening hotspot, Hisaronu is one of the most exciting towns in the area. Perched on a mountain plateau, Hisaronu overlooks staggering beaches and warm waters.

Calis

Set around a coast of soft sands and inviting blue waters, Calis is a suntrap.

Ovacik

Go in search of this small village in south-west Turkey and you won’t be disappointed.

Sarigerme

Get among the daily local beat as you traipse around markets selling fresh produce and glittering gifts.

Fethiye

Popular Fethiye is a town with plenty to talk about. Stretching along the coast with a treasure trove of fabulous views, historical old centres and a shining marina.

Turunc

Hiking up the Taurus Mountains offer incredible views of Turunç, so get your comfy shoes on and grab your camera – you’re going on an adventure.

Dalyan

In the sleepy, riverside resort of Dalyan, things are pretty simple and relaxed. But just out of town, adventure is definitely on the cards.

Göcek

Enjoy a splash of luxury at Göcek marina. Sitting pretty near Fethiye, this resort’s got a distinctly Mediterranean flavour, so it’s no wonder famous faces have lived here.

Kalkan

Boat trips, bathing platforms and bougainvillea-splashed streets – that’s Kalkan for you.

Beaches

The Blue Lagoon in Olu Deniz is one of Turkey’s most photographed tourist attractions, so it’s a prize pick. Bordered by warm Mediterranean waters and pretty promenades, you’ll get to laze for as long as you like in Dalaman. Over in Sarigerme and Marmaris, you’ll find some sun-blessed spots as well.
