On all–inclusive holidays to Turkey, the basics are included in the price. So you can get on with exploring the country's dramatic sandy beaches and traditional shopping scene.
Flights, accommodation, food and drink are all paid for with All inclusive holidays to Turkey. So, you can save your haggling for the bazaars, before jumping into everything else going on – first–class beaches, ancient temples and east–meets–west food. Here are a few ideas for your to–do list...
Dalaman is known at the Turquoise coast, and when you visit, you'll see why. Star of the show is the Blue Lagoon in Olu Deniz White sand and pebbles curve around a deep blue lagoon, set in a lush valley backed by pine trees. No wonder it's one of the most–photographed beaches in the Mediterranean. It's pretty popular though, so for something quieter, you could try Iztuzu Beach near Dalyan. It's so chilled–out, this is where loggerhead turtles come looking for a place to nest.
Turkey is waterpark central. Thrill–seekers will love Adaland in Kusadasi, where the Kamikaze ride will shoot you down a 52–metre sheer drop. And if you fancy it, you can hitch a ride on the Big Tornado, where you'll be tossed through dizzying twists and turns before being dropped into a pool. There's more fun to be had at Aqua Fantasy in Izmir where you can be catapulted at 80 kilometres per hour on the X–Treme slide.
See the Koprulu Canyon the fun way when you raft along this 11–kilometre stretch of river. Daily tours are run by experienced guides in this national park north of Belek in the Antalya region. The canyon is also a good place for walking – you can hike to the bridge across the gorge and explore the Roman ruins of Selge.
Forget Ibiza – if it's nightlife you're after, Bodrum comes up with the goods. You'll find most of the clubs and busy cocktail joints along Bar Street, the long strip that leads all the way through town to the harbour. Bars and clubs pump out an electric mix of house, techno, rock, hip hop, and Turkish pop while locals and tourists practise their moves.
This place does what it says on the tin. Get off the boat from Fethiye or Olu Deniz and you'll find yourself surrounded by thousands of rainbow–coloured butterflies. There's a conveniently placed pebbly cove to cool off in, too, so pack your swimming stuff. You can refuel at the beach bar.
