Konyaaltı beach, located in the southern resort of Antalya popular with British tourists, has revealed the guidelines which will be enforced on tourists.

In a new video, special areas of 9sqm using wooden posts and ropes will be designated for tourists, which will be disinfected between use.

Only three people at a time will be able to use the zones from one family.

Beachgoers will no longer be allowed to lay their towels randomly on the sand to sunbathe.

Smoking will also be banned to reduce contamination from discarded butts, with smoking zones instead, while masks and gloves will be mandatory in busy areas.

Turnstile entry, with different entrances and exits, limited lockers and additional warning signs will also all be implemented.

Turkey has started reducing their lockdown measures across the country, with land borders opening between regions and seaside destinations.

However, British tourists are not expected to return until at least autumn, with domestic travellers the priority, according to local media, due to fears of another outbreak as well as social distancing guidelines being enforced.

For example, holiday resorts across the country may require guests to prove they don't have coronavirus with health certificates.

Hotels, airports and attractions will all be sterilised as well as forced to have enough spacing to allow social distancing, while temperature checks are also likely to be introduced at hotels.

The UK will also enforce a 14-day quarantine on anyone entering the country, including British nationals, from next month.

Holidays to Turkey are soaring in popularity, but mainly for next year instead.

EasyJet's commercial director Alex Lofus told Sun Online Travel: "The big demand is next summer – there has been a massive surge in people looking to secure a family break.

"We're mainly seeing people booking Turkey, a particularly popular destination, with a big interest in self-catered properties so families can reunite with their extended relatives."

Here are the best deals you can find for next year.
