There’s over 8,000 kilometres of coastline to explore in Turkey, and the southwest coast is one of our very favourite spots; in particular, the area known as the Turquoise Coast, or Turkish Riviera.

This unwaveringly beautiful ribbon of shoreline mesmerises like no other. Jaw-droppingly-idyllic beaches meet pine-clad hills in an endless vista of green and blue, and glamorous towns and pretty villages invite visitors to enjoy the many delights of coastal life, from joining in with the yacht crowd to dancing ‘til sunrise.

There’s dramatic seafront scenery, absorbing cultural sites, watersports aplenty, a barrage of luxury holiday resorts, and delicious local cuisine all waiting to be discovered and delighted in.

Discover Ölüdeniz

A tranquil lagoon, Blue Flag beach and pine-clad mountains combine to make Ölüdeniz a picture of perfection; it’s no wonder it’s one of Turkey’s top locations for paragliding, with such awe-inspiring panorama. Beyond the beach, there’s the famous Lycian Way, one of the most scenic walking trails in the world, offering fascinating ancient ruins and staggering views.


Cruise along the coast

Take in all the beauty of the Turquoise Coast by boat, with a daytrip along the shimmering Aegean Sea in a boat or even a traditional Turkish gulet. You’ll see the coast from a different perspective, as well as have the chance to pause at beautiful bays and beaches, snorkelling and sunbathing in stunning surroundings. Many charter companies offer trips including a traditional Turkish lunch, such as meze and freshly-barbecued kebabs, to see you through the day.


Be pampered at a Hammam

A centuries-old wellness tradition, the Turkish Hammam is a completely rejuvenating experience. It begins in a steam room where the heat will open your pores and relax your muscles. You’ll then be tended to by a therapist who will wash, massage and exfoliate your skin before a refreshing cold-water rinse. We recommend visiting a Hammam at the beginning of your trip to avoid fading that holiday tan!


Visit Bodrum Castle

Jutting proudly out into the sea, Bodrum Castle cuts an imposing figure. Originally built by the Knights of St John in the early 15th Century, today the castle is home to the Museum of Underwater Archaeology which houses the world’s oldest excavated shipwreck along with a host of other sunken ancient and medieval ships.

Half Moon


"You’ll be following in some very famous royal footsteps when you check in at this iconic hotel - the Queen, Prince Charles and Prince Harry have all enjoyed Half Moon’s legendary Jamaican hospitality."

"With 400 acres to explore, the best way to get around Half Moon is by bike - the pedal-back brakes take a bit of getting used to but they’re great fun once you’ve got the hang of it."

"At 65 years old, Half Moon might be getting on a bit, but she still likes to look her best - the Sugar Mill Restaurant and lobby area were refurbished last year and the soon-to-be-open East Cove will feature two new restaurants, three bars, an adult-only swimming pool, swimming lagoon and much more."
