Anybody been recently ? Which are the less busy areas ? We are now thinking of going to Turkey. We are looking for a beach but not busy young bar type places. Just sunshine and palm trees. Any recommendations ?

Dalyan is lovely.. but you need to do a river trip to get to the beach. it's well worth it though.
a friend of mine went to Belek in april and said it was nice and quieet, apparently the hotel was about 10 minutes away to town by car. maybe the travel agency can advise you.
Paradise Bay just outside of Al Tinkum, beautiful.

Thank you all, I will take a look at these places.
I have been going to every year for the last 8 years , we always fly to antalya and stay east of there . Its still quite unspoiled at that end of turkey and the beaches are lovely soft white sand . We have stayed in hotels near belek 3 times . We have stayed near side which is a bit more commercialised . Hope this helps.
Turtle Bay at Daylan is beautiful, if you stay in Fethiye there's a daily boat trip which goes there. As above, well worth a look.
Olu Deniz is also lovely. Lots to see and do, especially if you're into watersports. Not my cup of tea, but it appeals to a lot of people.

Yalikavak is a small fishing town located on the Aegean coast. Aside from the fact my parents have a house here (which incidentally is available to rent) ;) it is absolutely gorgeous and far less developed than many of the 'popular' tourist areas. Lots of lovely restaurants, a market every Thursday which is a must, and a beautiful beach. There's no loud bars and clubs (yet!) and they've also got a huge amphitheatre where they hold lots of events and 'entertainment'. It's lovely to sit beside the harbour and watch the fireworks go off at night :)

I've posted loads of pics on TripAdvisor, both of the house and the area, so maybe have a look on there for an idea, and other people's recommendations.

If you don't like bars and loud places (I don't either) then I would stay away from places like Marmaris and Altinkum. Horrible places, and it'll take you half an hour just to get past all the locals trying to sell you trips!

If you do go to Turkey, then be sure to take a trip to Pamukkale and Myndos Gate. Lots of other historic sights, check them out before you go and plan your trip to ensure you get the most out of it.

Have a great time :-)
