Turkey is surrounded by four seas and has one of the most attractive coastal scenery – untouched, untapped and inviting. With seas as bright as a clean glass sheet and blue waters, this remarkable ancient destination is a great place to visit. Taking into account the secret coves, wind-weary rugged cliffs and richly endowed bay and beaches, Turkey is a natural place for fun and sports. You can find such sports as snorkelling, kite surfing, scuba diving and canoeing. There is a lot more to enjoy in Turkey, and the resorts on the coasts offer a glimpse to the exciting things the country has to offer.
Kite surfers from across the globe often resort to the wind-beaten Aegean coastline which is a favourite place for windsurfers as well. The Turkish airline Pegasus will get interested visitors to Bodrum as fast as possible in order to reach the famous resort centres like the renowned Bitez. Tourists can use the services of skilful sailors to navigate the sea from Bodrum to any destination of their choice. Visitors who want to learn how to pilot yachts are also welcome to enjoy the thrill of the sea. Experienced sailors monitor and supervise all the seafaring activities to make sure nothing goes wrong during the trip.
Tourists can visit many of the ancient attractions in Turkey. Some of the beautiful sights are the beautiful building of Aya Sofya Museum, the vast ruins of Ephesus, the opulent Topkapi Palace, and the travertine of Pamukkale.

The beautiful scenery all over Turkey offers the opportunity for those who love trekking and climbing with various levels and complexities. Tourists can enjoy the exciting trek from the paths and trails in Cappadocia to the more difficult journey in the Kackar Mountains located in the North Eastern part of the country. The sight alone is overwhelming, and you’ll get the lifetime of memories to bring home with you. Turkey has many mountain ranges, and some of these places are popular with tourists. The highest climb is Mount Ararat and many climbers are tempted to try out their various skills.
In winter, favourite sports are organised in popular resorts to keep the people entertained. The most visited of these places is the Ski Resort located not too far from Istanbul.
