Luxury Mediterranean Coast Holidays

Golf greens and golden shores

Mediterranean Coast

Turkey's Mediterranean Coast curves along the country's sunny southern edge, and is fringed with sandy beaches the colour of butterscotch. Luxe hotels back the beaches (most have private sections of sand with loungers and parasols), and behind them you'll find eucalyptus forests, pine-cloaked mountains and olive groves. The greenery hides hundreds of bird species, while down on the sand you can find nesting grounds for rare leatherback turtles.

It's not all about natural beauty, though. Nearby, you'll find a handful of centuries-old ruins, including the ancient Anatolian city of Perge and the huge, well-preserved Roman theatre at Aspendos.

With sightseeing ticked off your list, there are plenty of ways to relax. Try out a traditional Turkish hammam or tee off at one of the region’s golf clubs – in Belek alone, you’ll find eight golf clubs that tot up ten 18-hole and two 27-hole courses between them. 

Destinations in Mediterranean Coast
Belek
Belek collects luxurious spa and golf resorts, lining them up along the huge sandy beach. The town’s got a surprise up its sleeve, too – mystical mountain views.

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

British citizens need a visa to enter Turkey. It costs 20 US dollars, and you can apply online. Your Trusted Adviser can let you know how.

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.
