Discover Izmir

Head to the Aegean Coast and find the mesmerizing port city of Izmir. Rebuilt by Alexander the Great himself, it's now a special spot for sun-seekers and explorers.

Visitors here are in for a treat with a real mix of beaches, mountains, city sightseeing and even one of the 7 Wonders of the Ancient World.

Blissful bay, beaches and bazaars

Kusadasi, with its white sandy beaches and shallow waters, is the flagship holiday resort. The choice of watersports at Ladies Beach and nearby waterparks keep you busy and cool. Back on dry land, you'll be spoilt for choice with delicious restaurants and an upbeat nightlife. 

For a quieter retreat, Cesme's beaches are just as beautiful. The impressive 14th century fortress in the heart of town sets a fairytale scene alongside lush green countryside and azure sea.

Let's not forget about Izmir town, full of picturesque restaurants across its seafront promendade. Wander through one of Turkey's greatest bazaars at Kemeralti Market, a labyrinth of shops, eateries, mosques and synagogues.

Bucketlist beauty

If you've always wanted to tick off the 7 Wonders of the Ancient World, you're in the right place. Discover the Temple of Artemis ruins in the ancient city of Ephesus for a real insight back in time. 

Dilek National Park, or more affectionately named 'Mili Park', is a piece of paradise. Hike the mountain trails to catch a glimpse of wild flowers and wild pigs, check out the most beautiful beaches for respite and take a dip in the mystical Cave of Zeus to cool off. The water is said to have a beautifying effect on your skin.
