Discover Turkey, home of disabled travelers
If you have any queries relating to any special needs for your holiday, it is best to check direct with your tour operator before booking your disabled friendly holiday.
The resorts which are located in relatively flat areas, and are, therefore, better suited to wheelchair users are: Marmaris, Icmeler, Dalyan, Fethiye, Calis Beach, Side, Kemer. Anyone who has difficulty in walking should certainly avoid resorts on steep hills such as Kalkan and Turunc. Obviously, hotel locations vary so do check before booking.
Some of the newer and larger hotels have rooms specifically designed for wheelchair users, however, even where hotels do not have specific facilities they will usually try their best to be helpful by, for example, allocating a ground floor room.
Sorry but many Turkish resorts and cities are not planned good enough for wheelchair access, which can make life difficult, however, you will find that Turkish people always try their best to be helpful and will gladly improvise to find a solution.
If you would like details of how to hire a wheelchair whilst on holiday in Turkey please contact your tour operator.
