Vacation in the sun on the beaches in Turkey

Childhood memories are sweet memories. Vivid pleasant memories of childhood times when I and me fellow Boy Scouts camped by the seaside. I also remembered the time when I and my childhood friend cycled 20 plus miles to be by the seaside. For we folks who don't live by the seaside, sight of the sea and the beaches are a fascinating change from the monotonous sight of concrete buildings.

Now still city bound, you will no doubt understand why city bound folks will like to experience a beach holiday from a rental beach villa. I don't think they, after getting used to the comforts of their urban "palaces" will want to enjoy the fun we had camping by the sea shore while young, budget constrained and hardy.

Vacation on the beaches in Muslim majority countries

I live in a Muslim majority country and can understand why they would prefer to travel to Muslim majority countries for their vacations. I think the major reason will be it will be much easier for them to get halal (kosher) food, food suitable for Muslims. What the possible Muslim majority countries they can go to for a vacation on the beaches?

Now while we may be discussing vacations in Muslim majority countries, I am sure many world citizens do not uses religion as a criteria as to where they want to go for their vacations, so the countries listed below are not exclusively for Muslims.

Vacation on the beaches in Muslim majority Turkey

Turkey, or more accurately, the Republic of Turkey is located in the Anatolian peninsula in western Asia and Thrace (Rumelia) in the Balkan region of southeastern Europe. According to Wikipedia, 99.8% of the Turkish population is Muslim, of whom over 75% belong to the Sunni branch of Islam.

Now where can you enjoy Vacation in the sun on the beaches in Muslim majority Turkey? Well, the Turkish Aegean Coast is one possibility. In fact, tourism industry is increasingly an important industry for Turkey and other than the variety of archaeological and historical sites, the seaside resorts along its Aegean and Mediterranean coasts are its principal attractions for tourists. Among many possibilities, one of the possibility is to bask on a sunny beach from a villa on the Turkish Aegean Coast. If you prefer the Mediterranean coasts, you can easily book a beach front villa for a Turkish Mediterranean holiday and enjoy the Turkish Mediterranean cuisine at the same time.
