Turkey holidays

Holidays to Turkey are all about lazing on gold-sand beaches, tucking into chargrilled kebabs, sipping cocktails at swish marinas... and much more. Yes, there are many sides to this beautiful country, as it’s the ultimate bridge between the east and west. That means you can flip between seeing ancient wonders, experiencing mesmerising coastline and exploring chic shopping malls all in one holiday to Turkey.

The right recipe

Turkey enjoys a melting pot of influences, making it one of the most fascinating countries in the world. Elaborate mosques jostle for space with ancient Roman temples, while traditional spice markets lie in the shadow of designer shopping malls. And then there’s the cuisine – a fusion of Mediterranean, Balkan and Middle Eastern.

A sun-soaked coastline

From the Aegean Coast to the Turkish Riviera, the Mediterranean stretch here promises postcard-worthy beaches blanketed in powdery white sand. Many hotels here come with private patches too, complete with Bali beds and cocktail-serving waiters. Bliss. Lagoons, water sports and promenades all add to the fun.

Ancient cultures

The Greeks, Romans and Ottomans are just some of the bygone civilisations to leave their stamp on the country, from crumbling temples to walled cities and epic amphitheatres. Some of the best archaeological sites are a stone’s throw from the Mediterranean resorts around Antalya, Bodrum, Izmir and Dalaman, making it well worth exploring.

Bitez

Olive groves and citrus plants colour the sun-freckled landscape here in Bitez. It’s a great place for lounging by the beach and totally unwinding.

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.
