A blissful blend of cosmopolitan energy, ancient sites, delicious food, and beautiful beaches, holidays to Turkey offer something for everyone. Meander through labyrinthine bazaars, enjoy lunch in sleepy fishing villages, and sleep under star-filled skies.

Stylish Istanbul, where Europe meets Asia, is an old-world stunner packed with historic palaces, mosques, and treasures from past empires. Wander the winding cobbles of Galata, bar hop in Besiktas, and explore the Grand Bazaar – every neighbourhood offers a new adventure.

In need of a beach holiday? The Turkish Riviera offers chic yet affordable all-inclusive resorts. Whether you're seeking respite or family fun, you'll find it here. World-class golf courses provide stunning views of the sea and the Taurus Mountains. With incredible ancient ruins a day trip away and coastal towns serving up sublime seafood daily, it's a stunning summer playground.

Combine a romantic beach break with a visit to Cappadocia, a land of mystical rock formations, cave dwellings, and fairy chimneys. For a breathtaking sunrise selfie, set your alarm early for a breathtaking early morning show, and see hundreds of hot air balloons fill the sky. Stay at chic boutique hotels with terrace views and explore geological wonders on your doorstep.

Take the kids to Bodrum, an elegant seaside city on the Aegean Sea. With Bodrum Castle at its heart, this popular destination offers activity-filled hotels on the beach and an underwater archaeology museum perfect for mini-treasure seekers.

For family holidays

Fethiye is a great choice for family holidays, offering kid-friendly resorts, all-inclusive and self-catering options, and child-friendly beaches. It also has an aqua park (Sultans Aqua City) and a large playground (Şehit Fethi Bey Park).

Beautiful Bodrum on Turkey’s west coast is another great destination for kids. It has pretty beaches and family-friendly resorts on the Aegean Sea – even its own medieval castle.

For cheap holidays

Marmaris offers budget hotels, beautiful coves, a lively coastal town, and wallet-friendly day trips.

Another budget-friendly choice is Kaş, a chilled Mediterranean resort town on the Turkish Riviera, packed with affordable outdoor fun; boat trips to the sunken city of Kekova, an ancient amphitheatre, and scenic coves like Kaputaş Beach.

For a beach holiday

Alanya has pretty beaches with clear blue water, ideal for swimming and snorkelling.

Çeşme, near İzmir, features cute bays, coves, and beaches dotted along the peninsula, including Ilıca Beach with its thermal springs.

For nightlife

Kuşadası’s waterfront comes alive at night, with Bar Street for partying and pirate party boats. For a relaxed evening, visit the promenade’s tavernas.

Another place for a fun evening is Antalya marina and its nearby old town. Enjoy an evening meal with friends near Kaleci Castle or a late-night drink by the seafront. Even out of season, the town is still lively.

For culture

Istanbul is Turkey’s cultural hub with historic wonders, music festivals, and chic neighborhoods like Karaköy and Galata.

Cappadocia offers subterranean cities, Byzantine tombs, and troglodyte hotels. Explore Derinkuyu’s underground city and shop for evil eye charms.

For pampering

Pamukkale, the “cotton castle,” has 17 limestone pools and hot springs. Swim in the Cleopatra Pool and public travertine pools. Staying in a local spa hotel allows early access before crowds arrive.

For a beachside spa holiday, choose an all-inclusive resort with a spa along the Turkish Riviera.

FAQs about holidays to Turkey

Is it safe to go to Turkey?

Generally, yes. The British government deems most of the country safe to visit. However, the FCDO says the terrorism threat remains high and advises visitors to be aware of ongoing security operations. Check current FCDO advice before travelling.

Do I need to have a visa to go to Turkey?

You can travel to Turkey for tourist or business purposes without a visa for up to 90 days in any 180-day period.

What vaccinations do I need to go to Turkey?

There are no vaccinations usually required to visit Turkey.

Are there any local customs I need to be aware of?

Many parts of Turkey are socially conservative, so beachwear isn’t considered appropriate away from the resorts. Dress modestly when entering mosques or visiting religious sites. Homosexuality is legal, but public displays of affection can lead to unwelcome attention.

What is the best way to travel around Turkey?

Turkey has a good public transport network of domestic flights, buses, ferries you can pay for in advance and daily minibuses can get you to most smaller villages. Trains are less available. The well-maintained road system means hiring a car is a great travel option. Hire cars come with an electronic device for recording toll fees, with the cost totalled up at the end of your rental period.
