Yellow sand beaches blended with rocky cliffs. Deep pine forests. Quaint fishing villages. Endless sun and cooling breezes. Luxurious resorts. These are the elements that make the Mediterranean coastline in Southern Turkey (known as the Turquoise Coast, or the Turkish Riviera) such a desired destination for international travelers.
For history travel, visit the Lycian rock tombs of Fethiye, and for eerie spectacle visit Olympos, where the chimaera, a flame that leaps mysteriously from a rock, looms. Antalya, a resort town, has several nearby points of interest including a harbor town, Kaleici, along with Hadrian's Gate, several mosques, a Roman tower (Hidirlik Kulesi) and museums. It's also adjacent to several villages of Roman heritage including Termessos, Perge and Aspendos, which features a second-century amphitheatre still in use.
Alanya has both beaches and castles as well and is also a resort area with copious scenery and archaeological finds filling its museums. Nearby Mersin is a major port city, while Tarsus is a city where St. Paul, Antony and Cleopatra once roamed.
Whether your travels take you to sun and fun or mystery and history, we have Turkish cottages that will take your cares away until the day dawns on new adventures.
