Cyprus or Turkey for a beach holiday?

Jump to last reply

I'm planning a 4-night trip to either Turkey or Cyprus. I'm seeking a nice authentic town with a fair amount of things to do. My main focus is the beach. Nightlife isn't important.

From looking at pictures, Turkish towns seem more scenic and greener whereas Cypriot towns look average and arid. But perhaps the pictures aren't doing Cyprus justice?

Which has the better beaches in your experience? Cyprus or the Turkish Riviera?

In Turkey have already ruled out Marmaris and Bodrum. Marmaris seems overdeveloped and resorty and Bodrum doesn't have a nice beach.
