Turkey’s ‘Turquoise Coast’, named so due to the color of its waters, attracts to its shores 30 million tourists a year, who flock to the area not only to spend time on its golden beaches, but enjoy the clean, fresh air and deep green forests.
Located on the southern coast of the country, the Turkish Riviera (also known popularly as the Turquoise Coast) is a term used to define an area of southwest Turkey encompassing the provinces of Antalya and Muğla, and to a lesser extent Aydın, southern İzmir and western Mersin. The combination of a favorable climate, warm sea, more than a thousand kilometers of shoreline along the Aegean and Mediterranean waters, and abundant natural and archeological points of interest makes this stretch of Turkey’s coastline a popular national and international tourist destination.
