The Turquoise Coast/Lycia region
Turkey's Mediterranean coastline is an alluring destination, renowned for its magnificent scenery with picturesque coves and rocky headlands, turquoise waters, golden beaches and pine forests.
The beautiful landscape, where the Aegean meets the Mediterranean is the beginning of the Turquoise Coast, dominated by the mountains of the Taurus range whose cliffs plunge into the sea of intense blue.
Further along the Mediterranean you reach the region of Antalya known as the Turkish Riviera and, together with the Turquoise Coast, these make up the tourism capital of Turkey.
Simple villages share the water's edge with sophisticated resorts, and fishing vessels and pleasure yachts mingle together in the sheltered harbours.
Endless days of sunshine make it a paradise for boat cruises, sunbathing and swimming and numerous water sports, and there are a variety of restaurants and bars to round off a day on the water.
The coast also boasts a rich cultural legacy from early civilisations and is imbued with history and legend, found in ancient cities and at sites such as the fires of Chimaera at Olympos, and numerous ruins dotted about the countryside.
The apartment is located in the former fishing village of Içmeler, just a five-minute taxi or minibus ride from the bustling holiday centre of Marmaris, on the Aegean coast.
Içmeler has a mix of bars and restaurants to suit all tastes, and is quieter and more relaxing than its near neighbour Marmaris. Marmaris is 8km away and is easily accessible by dolmus (Turkish minibus local transport).
The sandy beach stretches along the bay and forms the perfect backdrop for either relaxing in the sun or taking
advantage of the wide selection of watersports on offer, which include jetskiing and waterskiing.
There is also a large waterpark between Içmeler and Marmaris, which makes a fun day out for the whole family.
