The easternmost Mediterranean holiday hangout, Turkey is where sun-soaked beach holiday merges into middle-eastern mystique. The Dalaman region, in the South West above Cyprus, has a hot, dry climate and remarkable coastline, particularly popular amongst holidaymakers. Dalaman holidays are versatile, catering equally well for families and the party crowd. For Turkey holidays in 2013, check out Marmaris, two waterparks and many sandy beaches make the town perfect for children, who may also enjoy cooling off on a boat trip down the coast. Adults can choose from excellent shopping, the busy bar and clubbing scene, or more laid-back activities; Turkish baths, or hamams, for instance, are lovely, and usually much cheaper than equivalent UK pampering.
Amazingly, some hotels in Turkey even have waterparks on-site like the Aqua Fantasy Aquapark Hotel & Spa and the Titanic Hotel Turkey. For a more relaxing holiday, the Montana Pine Resort, the Hotel Belcekiz Beach and the Olu Deniz Resort Hotel, all in Olu Deniz, offer luxury and pampering in the amazing weather that Turkey has to offer all year round.
