Five reasons to honeymoon in dazzling Turkey

25 September 2019

It really is a gem with the right mixture of old meets new, east meets west.  
There is nothing more romantic and relaxing than floating in the Aegean waters of the Turkish coast on a beautiful Gulet (a traditional two-masted or three-masted wooden sailing vessel from the southwestern coast of Turkey). Swimming in clear blue and turquoise sea, relaxing on deck ‘a deux’ whilst being looked after by your divine crew, sailing for hours with the breeze keeping the heat at bay and then tendering into beautiful little ports for fabulous dinners – Mimoza in Gumusluk on the Bodrum Penninsula is a must! 

Fringed with a crystal clear stretch of the Aegean, the Bodrum Peninsula is a unique blend of impressive archaeological heritage along with spectacularly serene azure bays. Explore the new Bodrum Marina of Yalikavak, so beautifully designed and full of incredible yachts, shops and restaurants. If you love your meat then definitely book a table at Nusr-Et. The waterside setting, the stunning food served by the most gorgeous waiters and the super subtle music make for such a fun and stylish experience.

Combine with a few days of historical sightseeing in Istanbul – the Imperial City. It is an assault for the senses with a stunning combination of extraordinary architecture, fascinating cultural experiences, natural beauty and mouth-watering food. Enjoy everything the Grand Bazaar has to offer and haggle to your hearts content. What could be more romantic than catching the sunset on the Galata Bridge and then heading into one of the lively cafes or restaurants?

With its unending coastline, Turkey is one the best places to have a sun soaked honeymoon. But don’t restrict yourself to the sea and get a glimpse of the wonderful history and dip into the cultural marvel that is Turkey. This beautiful country is utter perfection.
