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.
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.

Plus the mountains that act as the mighty backdrop the coast are home to hosts of traditional hamlets just waiting to be explored.
