British tourists have been travelling to Turkey’s Mediterranean Coast since the mid 1800’s. It was the many ancient sites and ruins that enticed the intrepid travellers of old, whereas these days, people are heading there for the sun the sand and the wonderful atmosphere of the place.
The historic sites still attract the crowds but they are no longer the only reason to make the trip to this wonderful holiday location. As holiday destinations go this has to be one of the prettiest which features an extensive shoreline edged by the azure waters of the Mediterranean and framed by mountains which are capped with snow for the majority of the year.
Discover the Region
All along the coast there are beautiful cliffs and points from which you can enjoy spectacular views, and look down into hidden coves and secret bays. What were once tired old fishing villages are now well designed and unobtrusive resorts that blend into the landscape of the coast.
This part of the Mediterranean coast is one of the most cost effective locations for a family holiday - the food is excellent with plenty of fresh fish and seafood landed daily and the people who live here are warm and welcoming, making it the perfect destination for a family holiday.

The British love affair with this part of Turkey looks set to continue for many more years to come, with the summer season drawing visitors from far and wide. There are a number of cheap flights to the Turquoise Coast available through Jet2.com so why not book early this year
