Turquoise Coast
Affectionately known as the "Turquoise Coast," the Turkish Mediterranean Coast area boasts fine-sand beaches and sparkling blue waters. The lush, forest-blanketed Taurus Mountains serve as a breathtaking backdrop for this vacation spot. The sand and sea are just around the corner from ancient cities perched precariously on hilltops, carved tombs, and hiking trails. The history isn't just onshore: you can spot the sunken remains of ancient civilizations in the crystal clear waters, too. Wedged between the mountains and the Mediterranean Sea, this pristine coast offers spectacular yachting and fun in the sun for all.
