Linking Europe and the Middle East, suspended between the new and the long-established, Turkey retains a disconcerted balance of both east and west, representing a cultural mix with many discrepancies and contradictions. Modern city boutiques and exotic bazaars clamour for customers, the weekly tolling of church bells interrupts the daily call of the muezzin, and Roman ruins and the beginnings of Christianity compete for attention with the history of the Ottoman Empire and modern secularity. Most visitors concentrate on Western Turkey, with its picturesque seaside resorts along the Aegean and Mediterranean coasts, scenic and recreational attractions, well-preserved archaeological sites and fascinating museums that bring its rich history to life. Wherever one ventures in Turkey there is certain to be a warm welcome and traditional hospitality, making this a deeply satisfying corner of the world in which to travel.
Antalya is the main city on Turkey’s Mediterranean coast, Antalya has attracted visitors for centuries. Today’s visitors take a simple 20 minutes transfer from the airport. It is a scenic resort of palm-fringed boulevards, with a Roman harbour, blue and turquoise tiled mosques and narrow streets that lead to the old quarter, called Kaleici. Here, you will find an array of restaurants, bars and clubs. Two beaches are set to either side of the resort; Konyaalti Beach to the west is a stretch of shingle and pebble beach with an array of restaurants and bars set alongside it. Lara beach to the east has harsher sand and pebbles running into the sea.
Belek on the Mediterranean coast in an area known as the Turkish Riviera, Belek has been developed purely for tourism since the early 1990s and the sprawling resort encompasses the 2 villages of Belek and Kadriye. Belek is a favoured destination for Turkey’s jet set It’s ideally placed, being close to the airport and the city of Antalya, the region’s capital. There are cultural sites throughout the area, including Antalya and nearby Side, which are both rich in ancient history. Belek is surrounded by fragrant pine forests and eucalyptus groves. It’s a tranquil resort, with abundant wildlife and bright splashes of flowers, and the craggy Taurus mountains forming the backdrop to the rolling hills all around. Many hotels claim private beaches, so access to the public beach can be elusive even with 10 miles of pale sand and shingle beach to chose from. Belek attracts its fair share of sun worshippers, and there are all sorts of watersports to suit everyone. Your daytime could also be taken up with golf, cycling and horse riding. Nighttime is filled with either cabaret or shows at the large self-contained complexes or alternatively it’s bars in Kadriye.
