This once thriving fishing village has now largely given way to providing wonderful holidays and there are many and varied restaurants, bars and shops, but the charm of this gem is that it has not lost its' friendly and intimate 'local' feel.
To one side of the bay is a small harbour, lined with attractive boats and water taxis and for a small price you can experience an excursion along the spectacular coastline stopping at coves and bays for swimming and a barbeque lunch.
The wonderful safe beach, which is lined with restaurants, has recently achieved the European Blue Flag Award and there is a limited range of water-sports available.
No matter where you stay in Turunc you are never more than a 10/15-minute level walk from the centre of activity and the beach but en-route there are mini markets and many watering holes!
Some foreign nationals have settled here including many Brits and although English is widely spoken, this is clearly a very Turkish village with a lifestyle to match.
The locals are disarmingly friendly and make you feel very welcome. They are very family orientated, love children and are eager to share their beautiful village with visitors.
The climate is fabulous. - The sun shines for 300 days a year and it rarely rains but when it does, it is usually just a very brief interlude and clear blue skies are not far behind! Even out of season the temperature is usually warm enough to sun bathe.
Apart from the restaurants/bars and shops, Turunc has one or two night spots but if you would like to venture further, the larger and busier towns of Marmaris and Icmeler, with their bustling clubs and nightlife, are just a short drive or taxi/bus ride away (for a real treat, the water taxi is also great!).
Turunc and the surrounding countryside is excellent for cycling and hiking. Other activities to try in the local area are boat trips, scuba diving, rafting and jeep safaris.
You often find they cost a lot less than you would expect to pay in other countries.
So whether you just want to sit round the pool or beach and soak up the sun, play in the fabulous clear warm sea, enjoy the excellent local food in one of the fantastic restaurants or maybe take one of the many available excursions to local historic sites, we can promise you a holiday of a lifetime here in Turunc.
Dalaman is the closest airport (approx.120km away) and transfers by taxi and/or car hire can easily be arranged.
