Best Beaches in Turkey
Beach vacations and Blue Cruises, particularly for Turkish delights and visitors from Western Europe, are popular in Turkey. European tourists arrive in their droves during summer to soak up a few weeks of sun, sand, and sea. Most beach resorts are located along the southwestern and southern coast, called the Turkish Riviera, especially along the Mediterranean coast near Antalya. Major resort towns include Bodrum, Fethiye, Marmaris, Kuşadası, Çeşme, Didim and Alanya. According to the Chamber of Shipping, Turkey has been chosen second in the world in 2015 with its 436 blue-flagged beaches.
July and August are peak season and the accommodation prices skyrocket, and the sand at the most popular beaches gets packed. The weather is mostly warm and sunny from May all the way through to October, so spring and fall are great times to lap up Turkey’s beach life without the crowds. Here is the list of best beaches in Turkey.
