Exotic Wedding Destinations – Explore Exotic Turkish Beaches
When one conjures up thoughts of the Turkish landscape, beaches are not often the first thing that comes to mind. But if you take into consideration that Turkey is surrounded by water on three sides, it begins to make sense that the country has so much to offer surf worshippers.
Sandy beaches that boast clear waters are what you will find along the Turkish coast of the Mediterranean. Get away from the busy crowds of the city when you visit Patara Beach. It’s approximately 75 kilometers from Fethiye. Considered the Turkish premier beach, this is a quiet beach ideally suited for those looking for some peace and solitude.
Another beach close to Fethiye is the South Pacific inspired Oludeniz. Active water sports enthusiasts will find a wide variety of activities in which to participate. The beach is a bustling place for sunners and surfers alike.
The southern sector is home to the eclectic Olimpos beach. Here you can enjoy history alongside sandy beaches and the searing sun. The beach’s backyard is a pine forest, and inside you will find the ruins of an ancient temple, constructed of marble. You will also find treetop accommodations in this area, which are an ideal way to experience the Turkish shores.
Many beach towns and fishing villages are also scattered along the Turkish coastline of the Mediterranean.
The Wild Aegean Sea
The waves of the Aegean Sea whip up the sands and blur the waters. Activity here is in abundance. Pamucak Beach can be found 7 kilometers from Ephesus. Children will enjoy the Aqua Fantasy Water Park in Kusadasi. The sands here are soft and spongy, and elevate slowly. Kusadasi Beach in Ephesus boasts of close proximity to historical remains, and these attract not only the usual beach crowd, but history buffs as well.
Black Sea Beaches
Explore Sinop, a city behind mediaeval walls when you visit Sinop Beach. It is a quiet spot where you can enjoy the cool ocean waters that lap against the shores of the Black Sea. Also, drop by at the Alaettin Mosque, dated from 1267 and the Roman Temple Balatlar Kilsesi which has been made a Byzantine Church. The beaches of the Black Sea don’t attract as many tourists as the beaches of the Mediterranean and the Aegean because of their cooler temperatures, but if you are looking for tranquility and solitude, these are the beaches to head.
