Turkey is surrounded by sea on three sides, by the Black Sea in the north, the Mediterranean in the south and the Aegean Sea in the west. In the northwest, there is also an important internal sea, the Sea of Marmara between the straits of the Dardanelles and the Bosphorus, both strategically important waterways that connect the Black Sea with the rest of the world.
The Marmara Region gets its name from the Sea of Marmara, an inland sea wholly within the borders of Turkey. Marmara is where Europe meets Asia Minor.
The Aegean Region of Turkey has beautiful landscapes, dazzling coastlines, immaculate beaches, pine woods and olive groves. Perfect for nature lovers, photographers, history buffs and adrenaline junkies. Many popular holiday villages and fishing harbours are scattered along the coast.
Turkey’s Mediterranean Coasts has been a popular destination for visitors for a long time! Nowadays the visitors might be attracted by magnificent beaches and Turquoise Sea.

Turkey’s Black Sea coast is a dramatically beautiful part of the country, but not usually at the top of the list for those that are only looking for sand-and-sun. Beach life in the north of the country is best combined with a cultural holiday.
