Turkey has quickly become the golf capital of the Eastern Mediterranean, with the purpose-built resort of Belek, home to no less than 13 international standard golf courses. The number of courses in Turkey is constantly increasing, with more underway in the Antalya, Dalaman and Marmara regions. Standards of accommodation and facilities are high, the views are stunning and service is second to none.
Although Belek is at the heart of Turkish golf, non-golfers needn’t be put off as it also has plenty of activities and attractions to keep the whole family entertained. The setting is spectacular with long, golden sandy beaches, and a backdrop of mountains. Belek has won awards for environmentally friendly development and there are many rare species of plant and wildlife indigenous to the area. Accommodation is mostly of the 5 star variety with all facilities laid on including sporting and leisure activities, spa treatments and entertainment. Many of the hotels are also geared up to cater for children with kids clubs and other facilities.
