Today’s post was sent over to my by Nikolai, and is all about a stunning sounding part of Turkey – the Dalaman coast. I’ve never been to either the Dalaman coast or Turkey, but on reading this post, I might have to change that in the near future!

Looking for somewhere that has it all? History, sunshine, beaches and knock-out scenery? Then consider a Dalaman holiday on Turkey's stunning Turquoise Coast.

This beautiful spot has a resort to suit virtually every preference imaginable. Nightlife, scenery, culture, tranquillity - you name it, Dalaman has got it. If you're looking for somewhere that pulses with activity both night and day, head to bustling Marmaris or lively Hisaronu. Here you'll find waterparks and endless beach-side activities, perfect for energetic kids or big kids who love plenty of fun in the sun. In Marmaris, you'll find ample shops and buzzing markets, along with big nights out and a lively vibe that continues well into the early hours.

For a Dalaman holiday that's slightly more laid-back, try the beautiful resort of Olu Deniz - famous for its spectacular Blue Lagoon, and its stunning scenery of wooded hillsides and sweeping bays flanked by craggy cliffs and rocky outcrops. This is the ideal spot for a romantic retreat, and there are plenty of opportunities to enjoy a quiet night out with tasty local delicacies and a relaxed ambience.

Further inland, the region of Dalaman is a haven of rugged hillsides, mountainous peaks, hidden villages and long-forgotten ruins that makes for a fantastic day trip, or a longer spell that gives you the chance to uncover the 'real' Turkey.

With a package holiday you can take advantage of the support services on offer, which gives you the chance to find out about numerous day trips and excursions - perfect for exploring the local area and making the most of your precious time away.
