Turkey is a country that has lands in both Asian and European continents. In addition, this country is a peninsula country surrounded by seas on 3 sides. When talking about a country surrounded by seas on three sides, it is impossible to mention beaches. Turkey has many beaches that have been loved by many communities for centuries.
We have said before that three sides of Turkey are covered with seas. These seas are the Mediterranean Sea, the Aegean Sea, the Marmara Sea and the Black Sea. It is located on a beautiful beach in these seas with different structures and temperatures. It has been recorded that more than 400 of these beaches in Turkey are blue flagged. The country, which has 486 blue flag beaches, ranks 3rd in the world in this regard. The other two countries with the most blue flag beaches are Greece and Spain.
Turkey is without doubt one of the high seaside locations on the continent (or each continents, as technically it straddles each Asia and Europe). For those who’re a beach-lover, this a part of the world goes to blow your thoughts. Many of the beaches are located in the stunning south-west of the country. This unbelievable shoreline, the place the Taurus Mountains meet the ocean, has a whole lot of dramatic coves and scenic bays. Additional up the coast, the seashores on the Aegean are flatter, sandy and developed, whereas adventurous souls may wish to try the seashores on the Black Sea shoreline. All these beaches make the country both a place to live all year and a holiday paradise.
