Mediterranean Turkey is a less developed version of the Turquoise Coast. For those who bypass the busy tourist regions of Antalya and Ölüdeniz, this is one of the most unspoilt coastal stretches in Turkey. The sweep of the Taurus Mountains hovers above the sea line, fringed by golden sands.
The serenity of this region has attracted the more exclusive resorts and if you are looking to relax in the lap of luxury this is the coastal region to head for. Belek is a centre designed specifically to cater to the needs of its guests and boasts some of the best golf courses in Europe, while Kalkan takes a more relaxed approach.
As beach destinations go Mediterranean Turkey is one of the country's best and can easily be combined with historic sites in Anatolia and southern Turkey.
