Beach, relaxation and more
There isn't a short supply of beaches in Turkey and if you’re looking for somewhere that can be described as stunning, peaceful and charming then look no further than a holiday to Lara with its golden sands and an amazing mountain backdrop. Towards the west lies Olu Deniz, a picture perfect lagoon that is being kept in its naturally beautiful state, and is a great place for the whole family. Find out more about the Olu Deniz holidays that easyJet holidays has to offer.
Eight different countries border Turkey so, if you feel like exploring, finding something to do nearby isn’t a problem. Ferries depart daily from Turkey to the Greek Islands and Cyprus making it possible to visit elsewhere for 24 hours or, in some cases, a day trip.
Food and drink in Turkey
Turkish food is far more varied than the typical kebabs you can find in the UK; it's a mix of far-Eastern and Mediterranean cuisines and every region in Turkey has its own blend of spices to flavour their food. Goulashes, fish and mezes are found on menus and the restaurants are friendly and relaxed. Turkey also produces some great wines as well such as *raki* - an aniseed-based drink, known locally as “lion’s milk”.
To Turkey culture
For those looking to indulge in culture, they will relish in the entertainment available to them during their holiday in Turkey. Dance, opera, cinema and music are all big parts of the Turkish culture. Plus, the bars, clubs and restaurants of Turkey beckon the night owls in for an evening of jazz, rooftops and beer.
