Easter holidays are fast approaching, bringing with them the golden opportunity for those weary of the lingering winter weather to head off for a much-needed break in the sunshine. Although hints of springtime tantalisingly have started to appear here and there, the norm at home too often remains grey days and chilly temperatures. So, Easter’s your chance to escape to sunnier shores.
Here are some gorgeous and relatively nearby holiday destinations for you to consider for your sunny Easter getaway.
The Exotic Aegean Coast of Turkey
The Aegean coast of Turkey delivers just about everything that you could possibly imagine in an ideal sun-drenched holiday spot – from warm temperatures, sandy beaches and sparkling seas to golf courses, pampering spas and a rich culture and history to explore. Straddling the dividing line between the continents of Europe and Asia, the fascinating land of Turkey displays a set of unique and unforgettable charms. Even though it’s only a few hours’ flight from the UK, a visit to the Aegean coast will leave you feeling as if you’ve entered a whole new and exciting universe.
Visit the marina at the enchanting port city of Kusadasi. Sunbathe the day away on a white-sand beach and cool off with dips in the turquoise waters of the Aegean Sea. Step back in time as you wander amongst the atmospheric ruins of the ancient city of Ephesus. Bargain for vibrant wares in local bazaars. Feast your eyes on breath-taking natural rock formations, known as the cotton castle of Pamukkale.
Of course, it’s important that you find the perfect home-away-from-home for your Easter holiday on the Aegean coast of Turkey. Some of the most luxurious properties in the area are CLC World’s resorts on the Aegean coast – part of the well-known CLC World family of resorts (which you might have heard about through their renowned CLC World free holiday promotion).
For example, when you step across the threshold of CLC World’s Kusadasi Golf & Spa resort, you’ll instantly be cradled in the lap of luxury.
