Travel to Iskenderun

Iskenderun was historically known as Alexandretta, initially named after Alexander the Great. Even its current name is an Ottoman Turkish derivative of the name. Located on the southern coast, bordered by the Mediterranean Sea, it is a city that offers an authentic experience to the visitor with a resort-style atmosphere.

One of the main sights in the city is Bakras Castle, which was built in antiquity. Restoration efforts were completed during the period of the Crusades, when the Knights Templaer controlled the facility. Although the structure is in ruins today, its hillside location and remaining structures still make for an excellent stroll.

During the summer, Iskenderun can provide more heat than even the most ardent lovers of sunshine can handle. In those times, Sogukoluk is the perfect place to stay. It is a quiet mountain resort, along the road to Antakya, and can provide you the access you want to this area.

Just a little further from Iskenderun sits the small resort community of Arsuz, which offers warm seas, sandy beaches, and poolside areas that demand relaxation.

Walk the promenade and you’ll see stunning views of the Mediterranean around almost every turn. Linger over a Kunefe, especially on a cool evening, for a fantastic experience.

With baths, lodges, and bazaars to explore in addition to the main sights, Iskenderun is an excellent destination choice for those looking to enjoy a resort holiday. Make your way here and you’ll find it to be a memorable destination.
