Famous for its glittering blue waters, Turkey is the ideal retreat for a beach holiday, from pebbles to expansive golden sands. Join a boat trip to explore the hidden bays and secluded coves, whilst the shallow rake and sand bars of some beaches provide a perfectly safe play space for little ones to splash around in the warm water – and maybe spot a turtle or two.
Near Fethiye, you’ll find Gemiler beach and the iconic lagoon and sands of Ölü Deniz – arguably the jewel in crown of the Turquoise Coast. However, from the protected nature reserve of Iztuzu near Dalyan to the vast expanse of Patara with its sprawling ruins and undulating dunes just a 15-minute drive from Kalkan, nowhere in the Mediterranean does beaches quite like Turkey.
If you’re looking for a holiday near the beach in this wonderfully diverse destination, our handpicked collection of luxury villas, some beachside, others just a short distance from the coast, ensures you and the sea never become strangers.
