Turkaegean: An autumn that tastes like summer
In the İzmir province, the Çeşme Peninsula is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the consistently sunny Turkaegean. Overlooking the Aegean Sea, Alaçatı, that timeless Çeşme destination, offers dining and entertainment venues that retain the local flavour. İzmir is now on the Michelin Guide, and one of its most charming districts, Urla, is renowned for its vineyards and restaurants opened by innovative young chefs.
Featuring deep blue bays and glorious nature, Bodrum is one of Turkaegean's most stylish and unique routes, home to luxurious hotels, high-end marinas, fine restaurants serving international cuisine, and premium shopping opportunities. Also known for bohemian coastal towns such as Gümüşlük, upscale beach clubs, and spectacular bays such as Yalıkavak and Göltürkbükü
The Datça and Bozburun Peninsulas are essential points on blue voyages with clear waters and are ideal for a more relaxing vacation. Visiting İztuzu Beach, where the Caretta caretta sea turtles and humans share the same beach, is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Among the area's paradisical bays is Dalyan, a regional pearl, and eye-catching locales such as Göcek, Fethiye, and Ölüdeniz, with crystal clear waters and lush green nature.
Antalya: 300 hundred days of sunshine
Antalya, the heart of the Turkish Riviera, is a bright and intriguing city enjoying 300 days of sunshine a year and is also encompassed by ancient capitals, the sea and sun, beaches and forests. In Antalya, the summer season begins in April and stretches to the end of November. While the temperatures are cooler and sunset a little earlier in autumn, Antalya is still enjoying a balmy summer. The province is home to 231 gorgeous Blue Flag beaches, one of which is Kaputaş Beach, in the Kaş region. Embraced by shimmering turquoise bays, Kaputaş has a well-earned reputation as one of the most beautiful beaches in the world.
