The Turkish Mediterranean Coast plays home to Belek, a thriving town developed specially for tourism – but that should be viewed as a positive!
Many of the resort hotels are high-end, luxurious centres with private beaches and well-designed golf courses that are an excellent attraction. The lure of returning golf guests ensures standards at these hotels are maintained.
The Mediterranean Coast of Turkey boasts around 300 days of sunshine per year and the water itself is clear, warm and welcoming.
Enthusiasts of watersports will feel as at home here as the golfers with jeep safaris and boat trips an entertaining diversion from relaxing at the beach.
Away from the hotels, there are plenty of ancient sites such as the ruins of Perge and the amphitheatre at Aspendos and the nearby mountains, waterfalls and boat trips are all worthwhile outings for those on a family holiday in Turkey.
