If you’re planning a Turkey holiday this summer, you can expect plenty of summer fun in the sun — and a lot more besides.
This Mediterranean destination is home to attractive beaches and bubbly beach resorts, featuring glittering golden sands and sparkling shores for a classic sun-and-sand escape. Choose a modern resort like Lara Beach or a bustling, party-mad spot like Gumbet and expect plenty of daytime activities — ranging from water sports and beach-side fun to water parks and local attractions.
Of course, Turkey is rich in heritage — and whichever resort you choose, you’re never too far from a collection of ancient ruins or a stirring reminder of fierce battles and conquests of years gone by. Visit historic remnants left behind by the Romans and Ancient Greeks, or discover Turkey’s more modern culture – one that’s still deeply rooted in tradition – by visiting working towns and mingling with the locals in its markets and bazaars. Or, step off the tourist trail and dine in an authentic Turkish restaurant, and experience delicious cuisine that’s infused with spices and a medley of Asian, Mediterranean and European influences.
Whether you want to kick back on sun-drenched golden sands, dance the night away or take a voyage of discovery through time, Turkey certainly ticks all the right boxes.
Getting there is easy too, thanks to the wide range of low-cost scheduled flights, excellent hotels and package holidays available. Go your own way by booking your flights and accommodation separately, or take the easy route and travel with a tour operator. A typical package holiday includes return flights, nightly accommodation and local resort transfers, along with the services of a locally based representative, so it’s a great way to explore Turkey without the hassle of organising it all yourself.
It’s got the looks, the beaches, the heritage and the climate. It’s fair to say that holidays in Turkey are pretty hot stuff.
