Mediterranean Turkey (Akdeniz Bölgesi) is a region in Turkey. It occupies entire southern coast of Turkey and some places more inland.
Mediterranean coast of Turkey is mostly a narrow strip of land squeezed in between pine-covered Taurus Mountains
(Toros) and the Mediterranean Sea. Having been spared from pollution thanks to the lack of heavy industry, lying under one of the sunniest skies of Europe
, together with its rich art and history, make the region the top tourism destination in the country.
