Whether you’ve just met the love of your life or been married for 50 years, you’ll always enjoy the romance Turkey has to offer. Located on the stunning Mediterranean Sea, surrounded by picturesque Aegean Sea and the majestic Black Sea, Turkey has plenty of beach options as well as architecturally and culturally interesting cities just waiting to be explored. If you’re booked onto one of the First Choice flights to Turkey, here’s what you and your other half can expect from your getaway.
There’s nothing more romantic than strolling arm in arm to some of Turkey’s most popular attractions. The Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace and Blue Mosque (Sultan Ahmed Mosque) make Istanbul unmissable — you simply have to take in the culture of Turkey’s largest city. When it’s time to escape the crowds, head to the mountain village of Islamlar, near Kalkan, and wander through the fruit trees and olive groves, or head to one of the country’s many fabulous, white-sand beaches.
There’s a reason why newlyweds are flocking to Turkey for their honeymoons these days. Boasting some of the most beautiful beaches across the globe, it’s the place to be to relax with your other half. Head to Beylik cove, Aquarium Bay and Kargı beach for quieter, more romantic shores.
Wining and Dining
One of the best parts about travelling is tasting the local cuisine. Share a traditional Turkish kebab with your partner or a pre-dinner ‘raki,’ Turkey’s national alcoholic beverage. If on the coast, try the ‘catch of the day’ at one of the numerous seaside restaurants. The seafront eateries of Selimiye, a quaint seaside village just an hour from Marmaris, are particularly picturesque.
