Underwater ruins, rare turtles and white-knuckle watersports
On an all-inclusive holiday to Turkey the essentials are covered, so you can focus on all the other bits, like the fabulous beaches and white-water rafting...
When you choose an all inclusive holiday to Turkey, you don’t have to worry as much about what you’re spending when you’re there. All the big costs like flight, hotel and meals are already paid for, so you can save your spending money for the country’s highlights. Here are a few of our favourite things to see and do when you’re here…
Hiking and white-water rafting
Rafting along the 11-kilometre stretch through Koprulu Canyon, north of Belek, is a great way to see this national park. Experienced guides run daily tours on the water, stopping off for lunch on the banks of the river. And away from the water, you can hike to the Roman bridge that crosses the gorge.
Underwater ancient ruins
Just half-an-hour’s drive from Bodrum you’ll find Camel Beach, which has some well-preserved ancient ruins. You’ll have to snorkel to see them, though, because they rest on the seabed. Back on land, as the name suggests, you can hitch a camel ride on this sandy beach.
Turkey is big on aquatic adventure. At Aqua Fantasy in Izmir, the X-Treme slide catapults you along at speeds of 80 kilometres per hour. And at Adaland in Kusadasi, the biggest attraction is the Kamikaze ride, a sheer drop of 52 metres. There’s also the Big Tornado, which shoots you through twists and turns before dropping into the pool below.
The long sandy stretch at Iztuzu Beach in Dalaman is a hit not only with tourists, but with the local loggerhead turtles. These endangered reptiles lay their eggs here every June and July. If you’re lucky, you might spot some unsteady newborns pluckily making their way to the shore for the first time…
Remarkable rock tombs
You’ll find ancient rock tombs expertly carved into the cliffs in Caunos, close to Dalyan. Each one is a work of art in its own right. If you want to make a daytrip of it, Caunos has a basilica, an amphitheatre and the mudbaths to explore too.
