Last minute Turkish holidays that will take your breath away
Take in the sights
Still unknown to many would-be holidaymakers, Turkey offers an incredible range of old historic buildings with exciting pasts and tales to tell. Throughout the years, Turkey has seen countless battles, wars and changes in power. As such it holds a diverse array of different styles of architecture and influential monuments. Bodrum alone, for example, houses the famous Mausoleum of Halicarnassus which is one of the seven wonders of the ancient world, as well as a 15th-century castle constructed by the Knight’s Templar.
Beaches and watersports haven
So many of the beaches along Turkey’s coast seem almost untouched and delightfully pristine. Some of these are man-made, some natural, but all offer perfect opportunities to lie under the sun and relax while topping up your tan. For a bit more excitement, last minute Turkey holidays represent the perfect opportunity to try your hand at some watersports. Popular on the list is jet skiing, parasailing or windsurfing. But, for something more unique, you can go snorkelling or scuba diving. The crystal clear waters are the perfect opportunity to explore the Mediterranean aquatic sea life and colourful and abundant coral reefs. Some tourists even choose to abandon their Turkish haven for a day by catching a boat ride over to Rhodes in Greece. Not only will this give you the chance to enjoy a calm and peaceful boat ride, but also to explore an equally as impressive array of architecture and monuments of civilisations gone by.
When it comes to the evening, little can compare to an authentic Mediterranean meal on the coast of Turkey while gazing out to the setting sun. Turkey benefits from immediate access to great tasting seafood at all times of the year. However, its diverse history has also blessed Turkey with a truly broad array of dining opportunities. This includes dishes from the Middle East, the Balkans and Central Asia. All are best enjoyed with amazing company and a glass of the local wine or beer. Depending on your location, Turkey also has fantastic nightlife on offer, and the chance to discover live music in local towns and villages.
Few countries have on offer the same blissful combination of fine dining, fantastic weather and sites to see that Turkey can offer.
