As you might expect, the sea here is beautifully clear and there are plenty of wonderful beaches to enjoy. Gocek is dotted with charming secluded coves, whilst sun-seekers are utterly spoilt by the impressive miles of sand at Patara. There are plenty of water sports to enjoy if you want to cool off, including paddle-boarding and windsurfing, whilst paragliding over Oludeniz beach is sure to be an unforgettable experience.

You can’t go to Turkey without picking up a bargain in a local market and the bustling town of Fethiye is the perfect place to hone your haggling skills. Carpets, clothing, exotic foods and all manner of trinkets can be found in this treasure trove of a marketplace.

Turkey has a long a rich history, with many different civilisations occupying this part of the world at one time or another. Sites such as Letoon, Tomb Bay and Xanthos are well worth a visit if you want to discover some of the secrets of ancient Lycia. Many of the settlements along the coast also exhibit Byzantine architecture at its best.

From quiet, tranquil hideaways to cultural delights and from the most beautiful beaches to busy markets full of character, the Turquoise Coast is the perfect place to experience some true Turkish highlights.
