Yoga & dance – sounds like a crazy, mixed-up holiday featured in the Sunday Times roundup of the 100 best holidays in 2009 with our Yoga and dance holiday in Datca, Turkey.

Datca, Turkey

Get active in 2009 – Hatha yoga and Latin dance in Turkey sounds like a crazy, mixed-up holiday, but stop to think and there’s a mad logic to it. Staying in a converted olive press in a peaceful corner of the Datca peninsula, you greet each day with a healthy local breakfast and an hour of yoga: then, freshly toned and energised, get down to morning and afternoon sessions of salsa, tango and merengue.

You should have just enough energy left to watch the sunset cross-legged from the excellent (and often deserted) nearby beaches. That’s what we call holistic.

A week in June or July costs £485, half-board, including tuition, with Go Learn To (0844 502 0445, Fly to Dalaman with EasyJet (
