Turkish Delight - The 5 Best Destinations in Turkey for your Honeymoon
Thinking about honeymoon destinations? Turkey, on the eastern edge of Europe, bordering Greece and Bulgaria to the west, and Syria, Iraq, Iran and Armenia to the east, is full of memorable places to visit. It'll also appeal to a wide variety of tastes - it's got beautiful beaches, vibrant cities and breathtaking mountainscapes! But if we had to break it down? Here are our top five Turkish destinations!
5 The Datça Peninsula
Set on Turkey’s southwest coast, the Datça (pronounced Datcha) Peninsula makes our list because it’s a beautiful region that hasn’t been overrun by tourism (yet!). Characterized by mountains, beaches, small towns and ancient ruins it’s a beautiful and quiet place to spend your honeymoon with your new husband!
4 The Blue Cruise
The Blue Cruise isn’t so much a destination as an experience, and a magical one for any honeymoon! Set sail in a yacht crewed by experienced personnel around the southwest coast of Turkey, visiting some of the country’s most famous towns, such as Bodrum, and dropping anchor in quiet secluded coves.
Third on our list is the impressive region of Cappadocia, in central Turkey. Offering a different and unique experience to the beaches, Cappadocia is full of fairy chimneys, cave hotels, and underground cities and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
One of the world’s greatest cities, Istanbul is an amazing place to spend your honeymoon. Famous for its immense historic architecture, this city has something for everyone - from shopping the eclectic shops of the Grand Bazaar to the largest shopping mall in Europe, riding the waters of the Bosphorus, soaking up the culture and enjoying fabulous food.
Turkey has so many stunning coastal locations but none more so than Ölüdeniz. Home to the world famous Blue Lagoon, this truly is a beautiful and romantic setting for your honeymoon. Surrounded by mountains, the beach is frequently ranked among the best in the world and is the ideal place for scuba diving - or try paragliding from the mountains if you’re more adventurous!
