Luxury Turquoise Coast Holidays
The Turquoise Coast is the slice of land that curves around Turkey's south-west corner. It's a natural beauty - the beaches are fine shingle and lapped by clear waters, while the hills are blanketed in shady pine forests.
Seaside resorts are home to quayside restaurants, bustling bazaars and cafés serving glasses of sweet apple tea. Head inland, meanwhile, and you'll come across traditional, tucked-away hamlets. The town of Olu Deniz is home to the famous Blue Lagoon - a national park and one of the most photographed beaches in the Med.
Things to do on the Turquoise Coast
Spend a day at Ephesus
Ephesus is one of the best-preserved classical cities in the world. Wander around the ruins here and you'll find temples, archways and an ancient theatre that still hosts performances today. The Library of Celsus is a highlight - it's the majestic columned building you often see on postcards.
Watch paragliders at the Blue Lagoon
Olu Deniz's Blue Lagoon bay is one of the most famous spots in Turkey, with a small sandy beach, a wide bay of white pebbles, and calm, clear waters. The forested mountains that back the bay are a favoured take-off point for paragliders, who often land on the beach itself.
Cruise around the Gulf of Fethiye
The bay around Fethiye is speckled with a dozen islands. Boat trips leave from the harbour and cruise the inky-blue waters, stopping at a few of the islands for swimming, snorkelling and sunbathing on the pebbly beaches - they make a fantastic day out.
