Turkey

Holidays in Turkey are an exotic mix of new world meets old, where modern resorts are close to many historical ancient cities and monuments. For many, Turkey is an exotic and mysterious country that in recent years has become one of Europe's most exciting holiday destinations. Whether you are looking for sun, sea or history, a Turkey holiday will be a perfect choice. Situated at the crossroads between East and West, Turkey is a unique holiday destination. The city of Istanbul is the only city to be situated on two continents, Europe and Asia.

Turkey has some of the best beaches in the Med and many of the resorts offer easy access. Soft sands are gently lapped by crystal clear waters and the beaches offer a wide choice of water sports as well as places to lie back and enjoy the warm sunshine or a splash and swim in the warm shallow waters. A boat trip is a must on a Turkey holiday and it gives you the chance to explore deserted bays and also have a swim in the cooling clear waters.

On the Mediterranean coast, Antalya offers the contrast between the historic town and sumptuous beaches with resorts such as Alanya and Side proving to be consistently popular with British and international visitors. Dalaman offers something for everyone from the buzzing bars of Marmaris to the bustling market town of Fethiye, which offers a slice of modern Turkish life. Olu Deniz is famous for its stunning beach and magnificent mountains, the nearby National Park giving you an option to recuperate when beach inactivity gets too much while sophisticated Icmeler offers great nightlife and beach life in equal measure.

Stretching south from Fethiye, the coastline largely comprises of superb beaches, such as the one at Patara, with photogenic little towns like Kalkan and Kas nesting in the foothills of magnificent mountains. The sunken city at Kekova is a particularly intriguing signpost of the turbulent past of this fascinating region. Everywhere you will find a very mild winter, warm spring and autumn and a typical southern Mediterranean summer.

The glorious Aegean coastline of Turkey, lapped by the clear blue waters of the Aegean Sea, starts near Troy (Canakkale) at the southern end and the straits of the Dardanelles and continues all the way down to Marmaris. Dotted with idyllic fishing harbours, unspoilt beaches surrounded by olive groves, secluded bays and popular holiday resorts, the Aegean region is especially rich in history relics accumulated over 5,000 years. This area of Turkey enjoys a very pleasant mild climate with soft, verdant springs, hot summers, sunny autumns and warm winters with rain.

Turkey Holidays - Lots to see and do

Turkey has been described as “The cradle of civilisation” and a visit will reveal why this is literally true. Signs of the distant past are everywhere. A Neolithic City, Catalhoyuk in central Turkey dates back to 6,500BC and is believed to be the world’s first town. The heir to 26 Centuries of consecutive, but widely different cultures, has made Turkey a veritable paradise of cultural wealth. Some of the exotic visitors to Turkey have been Hittites, Lydians, Persians; Romans land Byzantines all contributing to the richness of Turkish culture, much of which is still very much alive today. The present republic was born out of the decline of the Ottoman Empire, considered one of the greatest Empires the world has ever known.

Dining is a delight in Turkey as the cuisine is so varied. Especially popular are the savoury appetisers “Meze” kebabs of all kinds (much better than the UK fast food variety), “Borek” pastry stuffed with meat or cheese, stuffed vine leaves, seafood of various kinds, sweet pastries, and of course dark Turkish Coffee. You will find every kind of restaurant, from the luxury class, with imposing international menus, to typical small town eating-houses.
