Beachclub holidays to Turkey

We love Turkey, its people, its culture and its delicious food. We also love the long and varied coastline, sandy beaches, turquoise waters, mountain ranges, lush green hillsides, rock coves and consistent winds, all of which make it the perfect place for a beachclub holiday.

Whether your thing is sailing, windsurfing, mountain biking, sampling the meze and baklava, swimming or just relaxing in the sunshine our beachclub in Turkey will hit the spot.

Turkey is a vast country, stretching 1500km from end to end. Phokaia Beachclub is situated north of Izmir on the Aegean Coast, the Greek islands of Lesvos and Chios lie offshore in the sparkling Aegean Sea. The area is bursting at the seams with archaeological sites, beautiful cities and traditional seaside villages.

When to go

If you’re looking for plenty of sunshine and long, hot summer days, then Turkey is most definitely for you. In May and June temperatures are in the mid to high 20’s, by July and August make sure you slap on the sun cream because it’s hot hot hot! You’ll be looking at mid to high 30’s with up to 12 hours of sunshine a day. Things start to cool down a little in September and October, but there’s still plenty of sunshine and the water will be at its warmest.


The Turks are a super-friendly bunch and will spend hours talking to strangers. Whilst out and about it’s likely you’ll be offered tea at least once. If you do stop for tea, stay for a second cup – it’s the polite thing to do and you are on holiday, so what’s the rush? Another great tradition is the Turkish bath, you'll be soaped and scrubbed until you are squeaky clean. There's a Turkish bath at Phokaia Beachclub, so you don't have to go far to literally immerse yourself in this traditional ritual.

The rich and varied history of Turkey is very much part of the day to day, with Roman temples, ancient theatres, churches and Ottoman mosques dotted throughout the country, so you’re never far from a little bit of history. Ephesus, one of the grandest and best preserved sites is approx.140km away from Phokaia Beachclub, take a visit here and you'll really get a feel how how life was in times gone by. 

Eating like a local

Foodies will not be disappointed with flavours of the Middle East and influences of Asia; the biggest challenge is choosing which dish to try next.

As well as tender Turkish kebabs and grilled meats, you can expect a lot of fresh seafood, plenty of fresh fruit and sun-ripened vegetables on the menu. Turkey is the home of fresh food. There’s plenty to set your taste buds tingling and it’s a great place for vegetarians too.

At Phokaia Beachclub you will really get to taste the flavours of Turkey with our club board plus menus, the plus being house wine, local beer, local wine and soft drinks included on your holiday all day, every day.
