In response to growing demand from holidaymakers, Turkey holiday specialist Holiday Mate has increased the number of flights on offer to Turkish destinations including Dalaman and Antalya - two perfect jumping off points for travellers wishing to explore the breathtakingly beautiful ‘Turkish Riveria’.
Holiday Mate offers a range of cheap flights to Dalaman airport. The Dalaman district stretches along the southern coast of Turkey about 50 miles from the island of Rhodes. Famous for its beautiful beaches and seafaring culture, it's also a major destination for archaeologists - both professional and amateur - who will find plenty to explore within the area which is steeped in cultural history
Visitors tend to head to coastal towns that lie to the west and east of Dalaman. Year upon year Holiday Mate customer’s jet into popular resorts such as Marmaris, Fethiye and the world famous Oludeniz beach resort to soak up the sun.
The azure waters and stunning beaches are the perfect place to relax, and the many different resorts and accommodation choices mean that it's easy to find the perfect spot to relax, whether you're looking for a romantic break or family holidays to Turkey that the kids will enjoy.
It's not only the beaches that make this part of the world special, however. You can take a boat along the Dalyan River to the ancient ruins of Kaunos, gliding silently past stone monuments and tombs from a lost age.
Alternatively, if you're looking for vibrant nightlife, holidays in Marmaris offers beautiful scenery in the popular coastal town with is home to a historic and very active port area. Catch a ferry - or charter a gulet (a traditional single-masted wooden ship) - to explore the coast more fully. Inland, beautiful mountain resorts such as Ovacik offer more peaceful breaks.
Holidays in Antalya, further east on the coast, offers a similar mix of ancient history and modern chic, boasting fine dining experiences as well as a wealth of history and archaeology. The ancient Kaleici quarter is an excellent example of Turkey's Roman and Ottoman heritage, and is home to one of the finest archaeological museums in the region.
The weather in the summer months is reliably warm. Midday temperatures between June and September are in the low 30s, while the heat loses its edge in the evening. The season extends one month on either side of the traditional 'British summer', so October is still a perfect month to visit Turkey if you're looking for a blast of warmth before winter.
