The Turkish Riviera, also known as the Turquoise Coast, is the synonym for a carefree holiday at the Mediterranean Sea. The 220 km long south coast of Turkey stretches from Kemer to Cape Anamur. The azure blue water is flanked by miles of sandy or gravel beaches and lonely bays. The original Taurus mountains towering behind it protect the fantastic beaches from cool north winds.
