Turquoise Coast

Visit Turkey's Turquoise Coast

Introduction

Giving onto the Mediterranean Sea, the Turquoise Coast takes its name from the stunning hues of its seascapes. Here you will find some of the most idyllic beaches in the world, including the iconic white-sand beaches at Ölüdeniz. This abundance of natural beauty has long established the area as the heart of the Turkish Riviera.

Travel inland and you will uncover the historic legacy of ancient Lycia, whose people left their mark on the landscape, carving tombs deep into the rock face. The Xanthos Valley lies at the heart of this region and is littered with ancient ruins; some such as Oenoanda have yet to be excavated allowing you to explore a site undisturbed for thousands of years.

In recent times the roads and infrastructure of this stretch of coast have dramatically improved and many now choose to travel by car rather than via cruise ships. However, the sheer beauty of the region's coastal waters ensures that sailing remains one of the best ways to explore the turquoise coastline.
