Romantic Locations in Turkey

Beautiful Beaches

3. Butterfly Valley

Located on the Mediterranean coast, Butterfly Valley is a secluded and lush canyon accessible only by boat or hiking. It's a peaceful spot where you can propose surrounded by nature's beauty.


4. Antalya

This coastal city is known for its beautiful beaches and historic sites. Choose a secluded spot on the beach or within the ancient city walls to pop the question. The Alanya Castle is perched high above the town of Alanya. This medieval castle offers panoramic views of the Mediterranean Sea. You can propose on the castle walls or in one of its towers with the sea as your backdrop.


Outdoor Locations to Propose in Turkey

Turkey is full of romantic mountains, parks, and wineries. These are some especially romantic locations for a proposal in a romantic park, viewing nature or enjoying a glass of wine or champagne in a secluded spot for the perfect proposal.

5. Cappadocia

The unique landscapes of Cappadocia, with its fairy chimneys and hot air balloons, create a magical and dreamlike setting for a proposal. Consider taking a hot air balloon ride at sunrise and popping the question while floating above this otherworldly terrain.


6. Pamukkale

The stunning white terraces of Pamukkale, known for their mineral-rich thermal waters, offer a picturesque backdrop for a proposal. You can walk along the terraces and find a quiet spot to ask the big question.


7. Bodrum Peninsula

The Bodrum Peninsula is home to several charming islands, including Kara Ada (Black Island) and Büyükada (Big Island). These islands offer peaceful beaches, clear waters, and serene surroundings for a private and intimate proposal.

8. Wineries

Thrace, in the northwest of Turkey, is one of the oldest wine-producing regions in the country. Gallipoli Peninsula and Tekirdağ are known for their vineyards and wineries. Some prominent wineries in Thrace include Chateau Nuzun and Barbare Vineyards. Cappadocia, known for its unique landscapes, is also home to some excellent wineries. The region's volcanic soil and favorable climate are conducive to wine production.


9. Mount Ararat

If you and your partner enjoy hiking and adventure, consider proposing on the slopes of Mount Ararat, Turkey's highest peak. The stunning mountain scenery can provide a breathtaking backdrop for your proposal.


10. Gülhane Park - Istanbul

Located in the heart of Istanbul, Gülhane Park is a historic and peaceful garden. It offers stunning views of the Bosphorus and is an excellent spot for a romantic stroll and a proposal.
