West Coast Turkey

A coast fit for Princes.

Sea water connoisseurs love the Aegean Sea for its little degree of salt and freshwater taste, enabling them to swim and not just to float. Since the cradle of the Classical Antiquity, Turkey’s most Western coast, the Aegean Sea and Greece have always been an organic whole – But today the European Union draws an invisible border through the sea, with many Greek islands just a few miles off the Turkish coast. To explore the ancient history (Two of the Seven Wonders of the World can be seen here!), visit MIlet, Ephesus, Bodrum, and Troy, or take a ferry to the Greek island Kos, just a little more than a swim away. Partying is big in this part of the country as well. Bodrum has been the center of attention for years, but Cesme close to Izmir is quickly catching up. For more quiet and relaxing moments, just drive along the coast and stop by at the wonderful bays with gorgeous vistas of the myriads of (Greek) islands in front of you. There are also two inhabited Turkish islands in the north, often overlooked, but a secret gem even for Turks who want to experience their country from a side they hardly know where cows still mingle on busy streets.
