Formerly a Neilson resort and new to the Mark Warner portfolio for 2018, Phokaia Beach Resort offers an exciting array of activities for kids and adults in a stunning beachside setting in a gorgeous bay on the untouristy west coast of Turkey, just a 90-minute drive from Izmir airport and 10 minutes by bike from the historic harbour town of Foça.

Perfect for families, the Phokaia offers the usual Mark Warner levels of service and facilities: watersports (including sailing and diving tuition), land-based activities such as tennis and cycling, and the superb childcare for which the firm is known. Packages include accommodation, daily breakfast and lunch, and five evening meals, giving you two days to sample local cuisine or to enjoy the optional on-site beach barbecue. Day and evening childcare are free for most ages.

Accommodation is in twin rooms, family rooms or two-storey villa-style rooms. Some options sleep up to seven or there are interconnecting options for large families and groups – perhaps those travelling with grandparents or extended family.
