The Dalaman region is known as the Turquoise Coast, due to the amazing aquamarine waters, the gorgeous weather, the striking natural scenery and stunning golden beaches. Attractive traditional towns line the coast and make for a perfect romantic beach break for couples or a fun-filled family holiday to Turkey.
Reasons to visit
Sun-seekers on a cheap beach holiday to Turkey can choose from a rich variety of resorts including the most photographed beach in the country, Olu Deniz to the hustle and bustle of important port town Fethiye. Marvellous Mediterranean waters are common to them all and ideal for swimming, snorkelling and scuba diving. You will find friendly tavernas serving up delicious fresh seafood all along the coast. You could even pick up your own at the Fethiye fish market and barbecue the catch of the day on your balcony. The regional markets are also great for picking up pottery, leather and lace gifts for the folks back home.
Things to see and do
Those wanting to add some thrills and spills to their Turkey beach holiday will be pleased to hear that the Dalaman region is one of the best spots for water sports in Turkey. You can stick to the shores and try your hand at windsurfing or jet-skiing or enjoy the spectacular views afforded by paragliding over Olu Deniz. Landlubbers can hire a quad bike or a moped and set off on a coastal adventure. This can give you access to some great points of interest on a cheap package holiday to Turkey. The atmospheric ghost town of Kayakoy is definitely worth a visit, as are the cliff-top tombs outside Fethiye . If you’d prefer to explore by foot then you could embark on the Lycian Way, one of the world’s top ten walks. Be sure to indulge in a massage at one of the traditional Turkish ‘hammam’ bath houses after the tiring day trekking.
There is plenty to keep kids happy on a family holiday to Turkey. Several boat companies offer excellent dolphin watching trips and sea-cave cruises from the marina at Fethiye. There is also a horse riding centre in Olu Deniz and an aqua park at Ovacik.
The classic Mediterranean climate keeps sun-seekers returning to the Dalaman region year after year. Up to 14 hours of sunshine a day and temperatures hovering around the 30C mark during the summer months, means the Turquoise coast is an ideal destination for those looking to book a cheap beach holiday to Turkey.
