Turquoise Coast

The Turquoise Coast is a region of southwestern Turkey that includes both history and scenic coastal areas.

It is part of the Lycian region, sometimes called the Turkish Riviera, where rugged, pine-clad mountains descend directly to a coastline heavily indented with gulfs and coves.

The region is less oriented toward resorts than many coastal regions, with small guesthouses and low-ley coastal towns, which makes it popular among independent travelers.

A good travel hub for the extended region is the city of Dalyan, because of its central location and proximity to many features.

Overall Atmosphere: Combination
Combination Atmosphere destinations combine elements of both cultural and natural destinations, where this combination is itself essential to the travel experience. Common examples are Archaeological Sites (where culture is usually experienced outdoors), Scenic Local Markets (where indigenous cultures interact outdoors), Hotsprings and Vineyard Areas (where nature provides the raw materials but humans create the surroundings), and Unique Cultural Landscapes (where humans and nature interact in innovative ways, as in the elaborate rice terracing systems of Asia).

Combination Interests typically fall somewhere in the middle of the three types of primary interests in terms of
(a) how climate-dependent they are
(b) how accessible and physically demanding they are.
Featuring both cultural and natural attractions.
