Plan a Holiday to Turunc
Tucked away in an idyllic spot by the rolling Taurus Mountains and the Aegean Sea is Turunc – a small upmarket resort just 12 miles (19km) from the busier holiday hotspot of Marmaris. Surrounded by olive groves and pine forests, Turunc was for centuries a quiet fishing village that attracted few outsiders. Today plush hotels, bustling bazaars and al fresco restaurants bring in tourists who want a tranquil place to stay.
Find a Hotel in Turunc
Turunc might be small, but it manages to pack a fair few hotels into its little bay while managing not to feel crowded. This has resulted in a relaxed destination with a great choice of accommodation.
For a luxury break, stay in one of Turunc’s four- and five-star resorts, which occupy prime seafront locations with private beaches, inviting palm-fringed swimming pools and fine-dining restaurants. Many of Turunc’s hotels offer all-inclusive stays with excellent buffets and cocktails on tap.
But there’s still a good range of hotels if you’re on a budget. Choose from more modest but good-quality three-star hotels, where rooms can come with kitchenettes and furnished balconies with far-reaching sea views. With plenty of variation, accommodation in Turunc also includes romantic little boutique hotels, adult-only resorts, studio apartments and luxury spa resorts.
Relax or Get Active: Things to Do in Turunc
Turunc prides itself on its beach, which has been awarded the highest Blue Flag rating for its cleanliness. Nestled into the horseshoe cove, Turunc’s beach is a mixture of sand and soft shingle, and its calm waters are protected by the hills flanking it on either side.
Embark on a dayboat cruise from Turunc through the shimmering crystal clear waters and visit hidden coves and tiny islets, or bounce along rough roads by jeep as you explore the natural beauty of the Taurus Mountains.
Get a look at the local marine life and ancient history on a scuba diving adventure, or take a romantic walk along the beach at sunset. Or to learn more about the local culture, arts and crafts, take a tour to traditional villages where you can meet locals. Turunc offers plenty to do in a beautiful, peaceful location on the Aegean.
