Forget Turkey’s teeming resorts. Here are 10 crowd-free beaches, from hidden bays to pristine secluded coves.
If a summer holiday in Turkey makes you think of crowded beaches and heaving resorts, think again. Scattered among the mountainous peninsulas lie hidden arcs of sand, pretty shingle bays and unspoilt villages with simple restaurants opening out on to the beach. Most can only be reached by car or boat, meaning they are rarely busy, even in the height of summer.
