A holiday is not a holiday without a good beach and the coastal location of this region means that you'll never be far away from a long calming stretch of sand. There are far too many beaches in this region to mention them all but one of the best is the Iztuzu beach. This beach is very popular amongst tourists and marine life alike and is home to the endangered Caretta turtles. Since no one is allowed to disturb their habitat this resort has remained relatively untouched and for this reason it is a beautiful holiday destination. If you fancy something a little livelier, then travel a bit further afield to the resort of Fethiye. This resort offers you what you might expect from a holiday resort. This resort ticks all the boxes for many British tourists, which is why you'll find a very high concentration of British expats there! For crystal clear waters and a great range of water sports take a holiday to Olu Deniz, wet suit in hand.
A holiday to Turkey would not be a holiday without some good old culture. Turkey has a wonderfully diverse mix of cultures that you'll find hard to understand without seeing. A holiday to Sarigerme is the perfect place to go if you wish to discover more about the diverse Turkish culture. Sarigerme is not a typical holiday resort, but more a quiet traditional Turkish village - some may say that there isn't much to see here, but the fact that there is so little there means that the traditions and culture of this secluded village shine through.
The Golgeli Mountains that surround this area, as well as providing a beautiful backdrop, also give you the perfect place to go and enjoy a spot of trekking in the sun. There are plenty of lakes, rivers and picturesque villages in these mountains which means you'll have plenty of places to set down in as you have a well-deserved drink and reapply that all important sun cream.
