The Turquoise Coast/Lycia region
Turkey's Aegean coast, also known as the Turkish Riviera, is beautiful, historic and agriculturally rich. The combination of a favourable climate, warm sea waters and more that a thousand miles of coastline not to mention the most spectacular of the classical sites and treasures including the 3,000-year-old ruins of Troy, made famous by the poet Homer; the ruins of the fabled city of Pergamum, on its windswept hilltop; and the magnificent temples, colonnaded streets, and the theatre in Ephesus make this a wonderful holiday destination.
In this region are also the less-visited, though still impressive, ruins of the ancient cities of Didyma, Miletus, and Hierapolis.
Despite this rich history, the region now has a vibrant, cosmopolitan vibe, with Bodrum Town at its centre. From here Gulets and water taxis can help you explore the surrounding sea and various Greek islands nearby, including Kos. The town itself buzzes with activity, with small narrow streets filled with stalls, shops and cafes, harbour and seaside restaurants selling the freshest seafood and a marina with yachts to rival any in St Tropez. Outside of Bodrum there are many resort towns like Gumbet or Turgetreis with nightclubs and Bar Streets providing entertainment well into the morning hours.
With lots to explore, guaranteed sunshine and certainly something for everyone, The Turkish Riviera is well worth a visit.
