East meets west
Straddling two continents, Turkey is where east and west collide in spectacular fashion. Along the coast you’ll find big-name ruins, superleague sands and bazaars hawking all things Turkish – from rugs to sticky sweets.
First up is Izmir on the Aegean Coast. Kusadasi is the big-hitter here, with an impressive white-sand beach and a treasure-trove Turkish bazaar. It’s also got the ancient Roman city of Ephesus – home to the Temple of Artemis – on its doorstep.
Head south from Izmir and you’ll reach the Bodrum peninsula. There are dozens of beaches here, and lively resorts like Gumbet, Turgutreis and Bodrum.
Follow the curve of the coastline and you’ll discover Dalaman. Here, you can head for Olu Deniz’s famous Blue Lagoon, or party ‘til dawn in Marmaris’ clubs.
Finally, there’s Antalya, the gateway to the Turkish Riviera. This region has 400 miles’ worth of beach to its name, and is home to resorts like Side and Belek.
