The Aegean coastal regions are among the most beautiful in Turkey. The crystal clear waters of the Aegean meet plentiful unspoilt beaches surrounded by pine woods, rocky crags, and olive groves.

The region has a myriad of port and fishing towns, holiday villages, and villa locations and boasts culture, ancient history, mythology, and civilisations dating back more than 5,000 years.

A holiday along the Aegean coast offers something for everyone; whether you're into sunbathing, nature, photography, sports, sailing, or archaeology, you'll find it here.

The easiest access point to this region is through the city of Izmir, with most international airlines having direct flights to its airport. Izmir is also connected to Istanbul by numerous bus, air, and sea operators. It takes just 50 minutes from Istanbul by air and around seven hours overnight by comfortable coach.
