Can any other holiday location compare?

Can any other holiday location compare?

Just returned from our third visit to Dalyan in 4 years (last year we tried Kalkan.) Fantastic holiday, as always - twice at Holiday Calbis & once at Villa Luxor with a group of friends.

Question is: Surely we can't return to the same location next year, so where else do we visit to experience such a wonderful time?!

We have teenage children of 12 & 14 who don't particulauly enjoy days spent on beaches (too hot and too much sand!) ... but like adventure trips.

Spent this evening looking at a couple of resorts in Greece and northern Cyprus but they just seem either SO expensive or lacking in atmosphere by comparison.

Any seasoned Dalyanites out there prepared to recommend another location which we could perhaps try for 1 year?!

This is so weird. Sister and hubby will probably miss out on holiday next year ( two kids in uni) this means we may miss out on a return visit to Dalyan until 2014! Have just discovered Cirali ,we may try this next year. I am really torn though. Dalyan was soooo special. Help......

Hi happydays. Are you saying that you are not going to Turkey because of the fact that meat is Halal? If that's so, I'm intrigued at your reasoning. I'm vegetarian but have no problems whatsoever finding delicious food to eat in Turkey - and several other forum members will vouch for me. So you don't actually have to eat meat at all! And whilst halal is a very contentious issue, so I feel is factory farming in the UK (don't get me started on that!). At least most farm animals in Turkey have been reared outdoors before meeting their end. Turkish people do not actually eat that much meat as it's seen as something to be eaten on a special occasion (which is probably one reason why there's such a good choice of veggie food), so in terms of consumtion per head, they get through far less meat than Western Europeans or Americans. I'm certainly not pro-halal, but feel that if it's an issue you could just forfeit meat for a week or two (assuming you eat it?) - believe me it's worth it for a holiday in beautiful Dalyan! :-)
