Turkey is now one of the most popular destinations with us Brits thanks to the readily available and great value package holidays to Turkey that abound. The majority of these are to the south coast beach resorts, offering packages to everywhere from the large resorts such as Marmaris or Bodrum to the smaller resorts like Side, Fethiye and Gumbet. All of these cheap Turkey holiday destinations are booking up earlier and earlier, so if you want to get a bargain in 2014 or 2015 then make sure you book nice and early. Here are our top Turkey resorts to try out:
Marmaris A huge beach, a giant water park, a range of hotels from budget to total luxury, a stunning castle, amazing coastal cruises and a pretty wild nightlife all combine to make this Turkey holiday destination a big hit with a whole range of holidaymakers.
Bodrum If you can't decide between stunning beaches and great nightlife or a raft of cultural attractions then Bodrum is for you. There is so much to explore here, starting at the castle complex, and you can dance til you drop with all night clubs as well.
Alanya For a quieter, perhaps more family friendly, cheap holiday to Turkey, this is a great resort. There are plenty of stunning places to visit with some of the best beaches and the Taurus Mountains on your doorstep, plus the citadel for history lovers.
Kusadasi Not only does it boast proximity to Epheseus as well as plenty of other historical sites in Turkey, it also occupies a gorgeous spot on the coast, and you can hop over to Greek islands Mykonos or Samos for a day trip!
Oludeniz Nestled around a lagoon, which has an entry fee, you can imagine this is a very pretty spot indeed. The lifestyle here is more laid-back that in some of the other resorts, but there's a vibrant bar and restaurant scene if you fancy a little excitement.
Altinkum Another quieter resort with a health smattering of lively bars and an outdoors club, the long beach is the main draw here, making it a firm family favourite when it comes to holidays in Turkey.
For something totally different, visit Istanbul for an alternative city break. If you end up craving the beach then the Black Sea Coast will be right on your doorstep.
