Turkey is a popular resort area. In Turkey, a beach holiday is a priority, but there are enough other holidays there. Turkey is visited for sightseeing and therapeutic recreation. Turkey is so diverse that it attracts tourists with different worldviews. All major recreation centers are concentrated along the Mediterranean coast.
The resorts of the Aegean Sea have absorbed the best qualities. They are located on the seafront, close to historical monuments. The Aegean is very different from the Mediterranean. It is much colder here, and the coast is rocky. But earlier the shores of this sea were covered with sand and all the beaches of this sea are considered artificial.
There are also resorts on the Black Sea coast of Turkey, but they are less visited. All recreation areas in Turkey are suitable for families and singles. There is a lot of entertainment and you won’t be bored, and even lovers of a relaxing holiday should visit Turkey.
