The temperature is heating up, my clothes are loosening up, and the sun is shining strong and long. Here is a round up of great Turkish beaches, they make for a spectacular summer destination.
First up is the Butterfly Valley; it really is a valley of butterflies! There are 80 different species in the area, the most popular being the exotic ?Tiger Butterfly?. I prefer this preserve when I want pristine tranquility; it instantly refreshes with vibrant, clean air, the sea, and lush green foliage. Both unique and extraordinary in the Mediterranean Region, it lies in the foothills of Baba Mountain and can only be reached by sea. One of natures finest treasures with free yoga, meditation and art classes available to all.
My second paradise to recommend is ?l? Deniz selected ?The Most Beautiful Beach of the World? in 2006. ?l? Deniz is a picturesque resort area, especially the main hillside town of Belcek?z, which has crystal clear water, and a long shingle beach curving away from the town promenade to a calm blue lagoon. In the same area as the Butterfly Valley (Mu?la- Fethiye) you can definitely swing a double header. Best of all, ?l? Deniz is the white-hot center of paragliding so while sunbathing, watch colorful parachutes in the sky or be adventurous and try parachuting your self.
The last retreat is my personal favorite where I go every summer, called ?e?me. Surrounded by the waters of the Aegean Sea, it lies 45 minutes west of Izmir in Turkey. Sea, nightlife and events make ?e?me irresistible for an amazing holiday. Il?ca and Ala?at? are ?must see? places in ?e?me. With its proximity to the city, it is a quick escape to paradise. Aside from gorgeous turquoise sea, many chic delicious restaurants, fun nightlife, fashion events and beach clubs, it is the highlight of my summer. If you want a social and active holiday, ?e?me is the beach for you.
