Destinations / Turkey / Turkish Riviera
Holidays on the Turkish Riviera are an experience of southern Turkey that is fun and custom-made for enjoyment. Located on the Mediterranean coast, the year round climate is both temperate and dry with endless hours of summer sunshine.
The resort of Belek is heaven sent for golfing aficionados as the resort has been geared heavily towards those fabulous emerald green fairways, verdant greens and rolling parkland. Meticulously maintained, the course is top class having hosted the Turkish Airlines World Golf Final in 2012, so golfers in Belek will absolutely be in their element. Belek is really developing this side of its tourism and intends to be the mecca for golf in the region.
A holiday on the Turkish Riviera is primarily for relaxing, but the nearby Kursunlu Waterfall is a natural wonder and the lovely ruins of the Hellenestic city of Perge is a historic marvel. Second in importance only to Ephesus, the amazing amphitheatre of Aspendos has capacity for 15,000 spectators and it holds an International Opera & Ballet Festival each year in June - perfect for culture vultures!
Ideal for family holidays or romantic honeymooners, the Turkish Riviera has lovely, clean beaches where it is shallow and safe for swimming. Naturally, in such a marvellous climate, the waters of the Mediterranean are warm and an absolute delight for swimming and actively enjoying various watersports.
Holidays to the Turkish Riviera will not disappoint. See southern Turkey at its best and simply enjoy.
