Christmas always seems to be the time when we get our heads between the pages of holiday brochures.

Well, we would like to give you the heads-up on Phokaia Beach Resort, family and activity tour operator Mark Warner’s new resort in Turkey.

Situated right on the beach, the hotel has 160 rooms, including twins, family rooms, suites and villas offering flexible and stylish accommodation for guests.

The well-equipped waterfront will offer the full range of water sports, including windsurfing, sailing, paddle sports water skiing and wakeboarding, thanks to excellent local conditions. Guests can also benefit from tuition by the experienced waterfront team.
