Holidays in Dalaman are definitely something to tell your friends about. Nicknamed the ‘Turquoise Cost’, this destination lies on the Southwestern coast of Turkey and, much like the name suggests, houses an array of vibrant Blue Flag beaches.
Kicking back on soft sands doesn’t have to be a snooze-fest. Resorts like Fethiye and Icmeler offer a harmonious mix of beach time, water sports and the chance to refuel in their buzzy bars and restaurants. If you’re itching for some fast-paced fun, you’ll want to head over to the big dog, Marmaris. The hearty sound of haggling hums through the maze of stalls, a bazaar worthy of spending the day-to -night in.
What’s a holiday good story without some snaps to prove it? For picture-perfect backdrops, the Blue Lagoon over in Olu Deniz is a national park paradise with the added bonus of some private beaches. Alternatively, for the ultimate “well-travelled” pic, venture to Dalyan where you can pose by the Kings' Tombs in Kaunos… and learn a thing or two about the ancient Roman ruins, of course.
