The broad and fascinating history of Turkey has made its mark on the country everywhere you look. The stunning cities and impressive ruins make family holidays in Turkey fun and different. After the 4 hour journey from the UK the whole family will be rewarded with beautiful sunshine, incredible scenery and enough places to see and things to do to keep you busy from day one. Whether you’re planning an activity-packed adventure or hoping to just relax as a family, Turkey is a perfect place to do it.
With so many places to see parents and children of all ages and tastes will be spoilt for choice on a Turkey family holiday. The bazaars in Istanbul are a unique and fun way to haggle for endless beautiful objects or some tacky souvenirs. Antalya, the Turkish Riviera, is a culture and activity haven with a stunning backdrop. In Bursa a dip in the thermal springs is a must, meanwhile further south the natural wonder of Pumakkale will have the whole family entranced.
Turkey family holidays boast a fantastic range of beaches; from hidden coves to busy tourist resorts with plenty going on for the whole family. Thrill seekers can find all sorts of water sports centres dotted along the coastline and choose to explore these stunning shores by waterskiing, windsurfing or sailing. With over 150 of the beaches across the country rated as safe and clean with a Blue Flag status, children are free to explore while parents stay reassured on a family holiday in Turkey.
Family holidays in Turkey give children the opportunity to try out being a mini Indiana Jones or David Attenborough. Exploring historical ruins and spying exotic animals is a combination for the perfect adventure. Kids can cool off in one of the many water parks in Turkey (Adaland Aquapark is the biggest in Europe) and enjoy a day out that is guaranteed to be great fun in the Mediterranean sunshine.
There’s plenty for active teenagers on a family holiday in Turkey. Scuba diving lessons are offered at most water sports centres on the beachfronts, while those wanting to stay inland can choose between mountain biking and off-road vehicles.
