Many consider the SEA, SAND & SUN the most important points in a SUMMER VACATION. Indeed it is a fact that a great majority of foreign visitors prefer Turkey in the summer simply because it has beautiful beaches and sun all along the season, as well as in the Autumun especially in the southern part of the country. Having said this, beaches are certainly not all Turkey can offer because in reality this country is like an open-air museum with innumerous historical attractions as well.
As Turkey is surrounded by sea on 3 sides (North, West and the South) there are plenty of beaches people can use in the summer time, in specific. However, the beaches on the Aegean and the Mediterranean coasts are rare to find in other parts of Europe and some are truly very popular even in the continent.
As you go further south from the Aegean the water temperature rises gradually and the water becomes more salty which helps to stay on top more easily, really.
As for blue flag beaches there are plenty of them all along the coast, some like Kaputaş, Iztuzu and Sarmısaklı with more popularity.
It is a fact though that the local citizens should pay more attention to keep the beaches clean and tidy as this is a true problem the country has not been able to work out so far.
So, the list for the best beaches in the country is as follows:
1- Kaputas Beach – Kalkan
2- Iztuzu Beach – Dalyan
3- Ovabükü – Datça
4- Butterfly Valley – Fethiye
5- Ölüdeniz – Fethiye
6- Ilıca Beach – Çeşme
