Once a sleepy little fishing village, Turunc Turkey has claimed its rightful place as one of the county’s most desirable holiday destinations. Set against a backdrop of pine-scented forests and mountains, and perched on the edge of a horseshoe-shaped bay, holidays to Turunc Turkey are for travellers who want to enjoy the slower pace of Turkish life. Compared to its noisier neighbours, Turunc is a much more laid-back and peaceful place to take a break, making it ideal for families and couples who want to enjoy some quality downtime together.
However, despite its sleepy reputation, you’ll find plenty to see and do on your Turunc holidays. The bay offers fabulous fishing opportunities and there are some water sports on offer for those who need a little adrenaline rush. Fans of the Great Outdoors can immerse themselves in the spectacular scenery on a hike or a horseback trek. If that sounds too much like hard work, there are even jeep expeditions available! Perfect for a chilled-out getaway, the resort has a charming waterfront, a sun-soaked beach, and lots of vibrant markets, Turkish restaurants, and cafés.
Things to do
The jewel in Turunc’s crown is its horseshoe-shaped bay, dusted with soft, golden sand and lapped by warm, clear waters. If sunbathing isn’t enough for you, you can take part in some exciting water sports, including water-skiing and banana boat rides. There’s just as much fun to be had under the water as there is on it and the seas hold the perfect conditions for snorkelers and scuba-divers. Alternatively, take a boat trip to see historic ruins at nearby Dalyan, or spend a tranquil day fishing. The rugged scenery that surrounds Turunc is perfect for adventurers, with plenty of places to hike, ride or drive. In the evenings, visit a Turkish restaurant on the waterfront to try the local specialties and relax with a drink and soak up the sunset.
If you’re looking to make the most of the sunshine, the months between June and August see the mercury climb into the low thirties. For cooler sightseeing conditions, book your holidays to Turunc Turkey in the spring or autumn.
Flights to Turunc Turkey land at Dalaman Airport, which is about two and a half hours’ drive from the resort.
