There is more to Turkey than swirling dervishes, colourful bazaars and sumptuous cuisine. The Aegean coast, often called the Turkish Riviera, is also worth exploring, as it boasts some of the best nightlife in the country, intriguing ancient sites and beautiful sandy beaches. XchangeWorld is extremely pleased to introduce four new resorts in this beautiful country.

Royal Height Homes, Bodrum

Set in sprawling gardens along the seafront, the resort has its own private beach, two swimming pools with pool bars, and a spa centre with a heated indoor pool, Turkish bath and sauna. Nearby are the two 18-hole golf courses of Vita Park, the quaint fishing village of Guvercinlik with its various seafood restaurants, and Bodrum’s enticing shops and cafs.

Turquoise Homes, Bodrum

Turquoise Homes is situated between the Gulf of Gulluk and Mandalya, near Tuzla Lake. It boasts lush green landscapes set against a mountain backdrop, where its rich lakeside habitat meets the sea. The freshest seafood is available in numerous nearby restaurants, while a golf course beckons sports lovers. Shops and cafs are but a short drive away.

Botanic Garden, Dalaman

The Dalaman area offers many activities and water sports, including whitewater rafting, sea kayaking, cruises, paragliding, jeep safaris and horse riding.
