Holidays In Turunc

Turunc Holidays at a Glance

This is the perfect resort for those who would prefer somewhere a little quieter, with spectacular views of the Mediterranean, without being quite as isolated as the hamlet of Selimiye, set further along the Loryma Peninsula. The centre of Turunc is really just the one main street, which runs parallel to the beach and where the friendly shops, restaurants and the odd music bar is located.

But most holiday visitors just pass through Dalaman Airport and on to the larger holiday resort such as of Marmaris, the most developed resort in the region with everything you could wish for from a great beach to vibrant nightlife.

The bustling port town of Fethiye also has the lot - amazing scenery, great shopping, vibrant nightlife, close proximity to ancient sites and the opportunity to take a boat ride to one of its neighbouring small islands.

Embraced by mountains and set in area of outstanding natural beauty Oludeniz offers what is widely regarded as one on the best beaches in the world.

The wonderful beach is what inspired the location of the purpose built resort of Icmeler. This pretty, modern resort has managed to maintain a small town feel despite its success. With twisting streets, canals, whitewashed houses and beachfront bars - this is a great place to enjoy a cocktail.

Eating/Drinking During Turunc Holidays

From street-side snack stalls to the finest food in a characterful restaurant, you will find something to your taste in Turkey. There is a wide range of dishes, with each region having its own specialities, and there are an equally wide range of places in which to enjoy them. Meat dishes are the norm, but vegetarians will be find a good number of lentil and rice dishes, and stuffed vegetables. The turks love vegetables almost as much as they do meat, and the aubergine is the favourite. Freshly caught fish is available, but can be expensive. Of course, the doner kebab is a popular along with the pied (Turkish pizza). In the morning stuffed pastries or borek can be bought street stalls. For the British traveller, there will be plenty of new culinary experiences.

An authentic Turkish experience can be combined with a raucous nights drinking at one of Turkey's meyhanes. These tavernas serve raki, beer and wine, along with an awe-inspiring selection of mezes (starters), succulent kebabs and fruits of the season. A favourite location for raki drinking, the atmosphere gets louder and merrier as the night progresses.

Turkey's recent economic growth and increasing prosperity had an enormous effect on the vitality, energy and variety of its nightlife. The range of night entertainment is huge, from traditional male-dominated birahanes to techno and rave nightclubs, with new venues opening by the week. As a result, Turkey's nightlife is quickly gaining recognition as one of the liveliest in Europe.
