Turkey Vacations

Most of the beach resorts in Turkey are located in the Turkish Riviera.

Describing Turkey’s destination is a fantastic starting point when attempting to convey the depth of the country’s historical influence as well as the fusion of cultures that have set foot here. Turkey finds itself smack – dab in the middle of Europe, the Middle East, Asia, and the Black Sea. Due to this prime real estate, Turkey has experienced an interchange of some of the most powerful conquerors within the course of 8,000 years. Beauty abounds here, with Turkey’s heavenly coastal resorts and its historic, extraordinary works and architecture located within its cities and towns.

Istanbul, while being aesthetically mesmerizing, finds itself resting on two continents. There is so much to see in Istanbul; the themes of richness and depth seem to pervade the city. Aya Sofia, constructed in the 6th century by Emperor Justinian, is inexplicably incredible. Facing Aya Sofya is the Blue Mosque, adorned with exquisite azure Isnik tiles, begun in 1609 for Sultan Ahmet. So many must-see sights find their home in Istanbul, continuously reminding us of the magnificence this city has seen throughout the years. Imperative sights to be visited also include the Hippodrome, where Byzantine chariot races were held as well as athletic events and more, the Serpentine Column from Delphi, the Colossus, and the Yerebatan Saray dating back to 532 AD. We have not even begun to scratch the surface; so much more awaits your exploration in Turkey’s divine city of Istanbul.

Finally, when one has reached maximum capacity for the moment with the rich architecture and extraordinary creations, it is time to visit Turkey’s coast. Here one may find Turkey’s lovely beaches. Patara beach, rated one of the best beaches in the world, which also is the longest in the Mediterranean, is a fantastic place to relax and enjoy a tranquil scene. For those looking for a resort setting, Olu Deniz has much to offer. The beach itself is amazing; the water is crystal clear. Dalyan Turtle Beach, located on Turkey’s southwestern coast, is an environmentally protected, extraordinarily beautiful destination that affords alluring scenery and tranquility. Kaputas beach, near delightful Kalkan, is formed in the shape of a crescent and stretches out towards the most clear, turquoise water one could imagine.
