Turunc village is one of the best kept secrets along the Aegean coast. It is in a stunningly beautiful bay - surrounded on one side by pine forested mountains - and on the other side by the clear blue waters of the Aegean Sea.
The village has been welcoming visitors for over 20 years and there are many people who again and again to experience the warmth and hospitality of the Turkish people.
The weather in Turunç is warm and sunny from the end of March until the end of November. In the high summer the temperatures are hot and perfect for sun worshippers, but there are also cooling breezes which roll around this natural bowl - even on the hottest days.
The Blue flag beach of Turunç is a mixture of sand and shingle and has a gentle rake. The sea is amazingly clear making it ideal for families. For the adventurous there is a host of watersports available of for the more leisurely, take lunch at one of the many beachside restaurants and bars.
Eating out in Turunç is a pleasure when there are so many restaurants to choose from. Many offer traditional Turkish food such as mezes and kebabs, with perhaps some baklava and Turkish coffee to finish! The prices vary with the style of restaurant - from the cheap and cheerful to the more up market and formal. Locally caught fish is aways available on the menu.
The nightlife is based around the bars. Some of these have dancing until the small hours for those with energy after a hard day on the beach.
There are plenty of day trips to visit the surrounding area and boat trips can be taken to explore along the beautiful coast. These can be booked from several of the tour operators on the main street.
If you feel like some raunchier nightlife then Marmaris and Içmeler are just a 40 minute bus ride away. These bigger towns also have more choice for shopping and bargain hunting amongst the markets.
Turunc is a small resort that has grown from a traditional Turkish coastal villageconcentrating in fishing. Situated about 40 minutes drive from Marmaris on the Bozburun Peninsula.
It is a family oriented resort with the main street being closed off to traffic during the evenings, making it safe for even the very young. There is still much evidence of Turunc's dependence on agriculure and a short drive out of the village takes you into mountains and villages unchanged for hundreds of years.
Boats leave regularly to visit the five local bays or further afield to Caunos and Dalyan and water taxis can take you to neighbouring Icmeler or to Marmaris.
Car hire is availale locally by the day so that you can and venture into the hills and explore the neighbouring villages of Orhaniye, Selimiye and Hisaronu. Jeep safari's can also be arranged to show you the sights without the driving.
Further afield there is the bustling town of Datca and the ancient (buried) city of Knidos.
During the months of April, May, late September and October you can put on your walking boots and go exploring on foot.
