If a holiday in Turkey is synonymous with packed beaches and crowded seas, think again. Disregard the overcrowded resorts and head to one of the stunningly beautiful, often practically deserted beaches that line the coast of this lovely country.

Ovabuku Beach

Hidden away on the pretty Datca peninsula, Ovabuku is the largest in three linked bays. The beach itself is fairly small, and there are several traditional pension and friendly restaurants, and the surrounding landscape is lush and verdant, with a mixture of myrtle, carob, oak and pine trees. This is a place with a sense of serenity that is unmatched anywhere else.

Butterfly Valley

Located in a simply spectacular situation between two high cliffs, Butterfly Valley tapers out in a swathe of perfect beach. This is most easily assessed by boat, but it is possible to trek there by road, although it is a fairly challenging path. For amazing views of this and the surrounding area, stay in the charming mountainside village of Faralya.


Nestled on the Bozburun peninsular between the resorts of Kumlubuk and Turunc, Amos is a diminutive cove that sits between a pair of impressive headlands. It's fairly basic in terms of amenities, but is eerily beautiful, and sits in stark relief to the well-known resort of Marmaris just across the bay. This area dates from Roman times and there are still several ancient remains from the period - including a perfectly positioned amphitheatre. The piece de resistance is the wonderful fish restaurant that is located directly on the beach.

Gemiler Beach

Located just a stone’s throw from the overcrowded resort of Olu Deniz, Gemiler beach is a very different experience. Surrounded on all sides by olive and pine trees, it is never crowded and has a picture perfect view out to the lovely St. Nicholas Island. The village also boasts some great tavernas serving authentic, fresh cuisine.

Cirali Beach

Nearby Olympos beach is famed locally for its eclectic treehouse accommodation, but Cirali has largely escaped the tourist trail and remains almost totally unspoilt. The three kilometre beach is protected by law - home as it is to many loggerhead turtles, who use the beach as a nesting area. With two massive mountains of either side, this whole region is stunningly attractive, and the local village has a retro feel, with simple pensions and restaurants providing everything required for a simple and relaxing stay.
