Holiday destinations: Antalya, Kemer, Goynuk

Antalya is a miracle, a piece of heaven and it’s an affordable one. The “Turkish Riviera” attracts 30% of foreign tourists visiting Turkey and is one of the world’s and the Mediterranean’s leading tourism destinations.
Antalya is in south-west Anatolia, on the Mediterranean Gulf of Antalya, 727 kilometres (452 mi) from Istanbul.
The Taurus mountain range of southern Anatolia runs parallel to the Mediterranean in an east-west direction, resulting in the formation of narrow coastal plains surrounded by mountains on three sides and the sea on the fourth. Some parts of the coast feature mountains plunging sharply into the sea, forming small natural bays and peninsulas. The area is shielded from the cold northerly winds by the Taurus Mountain range, having a characteristically Mediterranean climate with hot and dry summers and mild and rainy winters. Around 300 days of the year are sunny; the sea temperature ranges between 15 °C (59 °F) during winter and 28 °C (82 °F) during summer, the air temperature can climb as high as 40 °C (104 °F) in July and August.
