Ordu, Turkey 

Chilled out Ordu is a top spot for Black Sea beach bums, with plenty of gorgeous sweeps of sand just to the east and west of town. The village itself occupies the site of the Ionian settlement of Kotyora, and although all hints of a grand past have long since disappeared, Ordu retains a snoozy charm. The old Greek district, with its timber-framed houses lining narrow alleyways, has bags of old-world character, while the seafront is quaintly old-fashioned.
