?? Turkey is more variable: there are bays, sandy beaches and pebbly, the sea is clean enough.
The most picturesque and lush resorts: Marmaris, located at the confluence of the Aegean Sea and the Mediterranean, Bodrum, Kemer, Fethiye, Side.
By the way, in the resorts of the Black Sea and Aegean coast cooler, you can swim from the end of June (Bodrum, Marmaris).
