Other destinations in Antalya encourage you to lie back and relax too. Hotel spa facilities are never too hard to find and sumptuous restaurants will make you comfortable each night.
This holiday region is based mostly around the Bodrum peninsula where dozens of fantastic towns line the coastline and offer spectacular beach surroundings. Many of the beaches look out to the Greek island of Kos and boat trips can take you there to visit too.
The region's capital Bodrum is the centre of excitement. With an abundance of shopping facilities, hundreds of restaurants and nearby resorts full of attractions, this is definitely one to consider.
Bodrum and its sidekick Gumbet are the two stars of nights out in this region. Gumbet has a smaller bar street but hosts the popular Dream Girls dinner and drag show.
Dalaman features some of the most traditional resorts in Turkey but each also provides plenty of tourist facilities and comforts for visitors.
The beaches are plentiful in this region but some spectacular ones stand out like the loggerhead turtle inhabited Iztuzu Beach and Olu Deniz which surrounds the Blue Lagoon.

The Izmir Region will take you to a part of Turkey that is shrouded in natural beauty and fascinating history.
As well as the ancient city of Ephesus, Kusadasi is home to modern hotels, attractions and a total of eight great beaches.
