The Turquoise Coast Feature


Top Reasons to Go

Appreciate the landscape: Pine-covered mountains plunge into a turquoise sea that's broken by romantic coves and remote peninsulas.

Relax on beaches: Some of the Mediterranean's most blissful beaches are here; lie on your sun bed or dive in from a floating platform.

Sleep in one-of-a-kind lodgings: Bed down in an Ottoman mansion-turned-hotel on the Datça Peninsula or an old stone house in the winding streets of Antalya’s Kaleici.

See spectacular ruins: Explore remains of ancient cities—from mountaintop Termessos and overgrown Olympos to the extraordinarily intact Roman theater at Aspendos.

Take a Blue Cruise: Sail away on your own chartered yacht, perhaps dropping anchor en route to take a swim or catch a fish for dinner.

Trek the Lycian Way: Choose a one-day or multiday hike along the legendary trail that runs parallel to much of the Turquoise Coast.
