The increase in the popularity of yachting and cruises in Turkey is pushing the coastal property market upwards, as buyers familiarise themselves with the stunning coastline.
Many of the main resorts are well suited to the second home market, with easy access and all facilities. If you fancy a permanent move, then one of the larger harbours or marinas on the coast would be better suited.
