Luxury Mediterranean Coast Holidays

Golf greens and golden shores

Mediterranean Coast

Turkey’s Mediterranean Coast takes you to a sanctuary of secluded coves, golden beaches and impressive pine forests where you can enjoy a stunning mountain backdrop. Curved around Turkey’s southern edge, there is something for everyone, with plenty of amenities for both couples and families on the pristine beaches, edged with azure waters. More active holidaymakers can choose from the selection of water sports available on the Mediterranean Coast, in addition to a number of golf clubs which are perfect for fairway fans.

There are also plenty of opportunities to follow the walking and cycling trails through picturesque olive groves, vast eucalyptus forests and pine clad mountains. Discover a myriad of exotic flora and fauna and a world of bird species hiding in the forests, while along the beach you can find nesting leatherback turtles. If you feel like total relaxation and rejuvenation, be sure to try out a traditional Turkish hammam and ease yourself into holiday mode.

Flight Information

Flight time from the UK to Turkey is approximately 4 hours.

When to go

There are no two ways about it – Turkey is hot. Summers top 30°C, with an average of 12 hours of sunshine a day and virtually no rain. The coast is cooled by sea breezes, which are particularly welcome in the mid-summer months. Spring and autumn are good times to go, averaging a thoroughly beach-ready mid-20s with plenty of sunshine and blue skies.

Visa Information

A visa is required to enter Turkey and must be purchased prior to travel through www.evisa.gov.tr/en/. The E-visa can be applied for up to 3 months in advance of your travel date. Please ensure this is applied for prior to travel, as it is no longer possible to apply for a visa on arrival at any Turkish Airport. For more information please visit www.gov.ul/foreign-travel-advice/turkey/entry-requirements. 

Tipping

In restaurants in Turkey it’s common to leave 10-15% as a tip, unless service charge is included – make sure you check your bill carefully. Round up the fare when paying your taxi driver, although it’s not necessary to tip a dolmus driver. In the very popular Turkish baths, you should tip the masseuse between 10-20%.

Introduction to languages

The official language of Turkey is Turkish. English is widely spoken too, so getting by is easy.
