Turunc is a secluded little fishing village that’s rich in unspoilt nature and picturesque views. The peaceful resort is an ideal holiday destination for those looking for a tranquil escape to soak up the summer sun in a relaxing atmosphere.
Enjoy the glorious weather by lounging on the sand and taking a dip in the crystal clear waters. Turunc’s horseshoe shaped cove shelves gently into the sea which makes it ideal for families with small children. There are beach side restaurants and cafés along the coast, so you can take a refreshing break in the shaded seating and have a spot of lunch or a delicious cocktail. Enjoy picturesque views of the lush mountains and glistening coast from the comfort of your sun lounger.
History and culture
The idyllic village is said to be over 100 years old and was first called home by only five families. Its name can be translated to bitter orange, as citrus fruits once thrived in the nearby land. It was in the 1980s when tourism really started to develop with new roads, hotels and even running water and electricity being brought into the secluded village.
You can walk from one end of Turunc to the other in about half an hour. The striking hillside acts as a picturesque backdrop to the azure blue seas but if you’re looking for a change of scenery, the bustling resort of Marmaris is only 20 kilometres away.
This sleepy fishing village has low key evening entertainment with the majority being nightly shows in the All Inclusive hotels. There are a good range of bars and restaurants which provide the perfect spot to sip a cocktail and enjoy the laid back atmosphere. Some of the bars do have a dance floor where you can enjoy live music and karaoke and for something even more upbeat, take the 30 minute journey to Marmaris.
