Kaunos: So much more than Lycian Rock Tombs

Kaunos, opposite Dalyan in Turkey, is famous for its image of the Lycian Rock Tombs that can be viewed from the famous river cruises. It is an amazing sight. The monumental and well-decorated temple tombs are carved out of the rocks dominating the Dalyan River. They are the main attraction of the many boat tours packed with tourists all summer. Unfortunately, only a few people leave the boat on the other ...

Cadianda: A site hidden in the woods near Fethiye, Turkey

We had previously mentioned how we utterly love the natural surroundings of Fethiye, Turkey. From the blue lagoon in Ölüdeniz or Saint-Nicholas Island to Butterfly Valley and the hidden waterfalls in Kabak, nature rules! And even if you leave the coastline, you see pine forests and mountains as far as reaches the eye. In those forests, near Üzümlü, you will find Cadianda (or Kadyanda), the perfect setting ...

Letoon: the Lycian festival venue

We like a bit of cult, and Letoon happens to be the sacred cult center of ancient Lycia. That and its proximity to sister-site Xanthos was enough reason to check it out. If you Google pictures from Letoon, you will find it looks romantic, with many of the pillars and monuments arising from water. It gives the site an unusual appeal while making excavations and visits difficult at certain times of the year. ...

Simena and the sunken city of Kekova: paradise exists!

What's the point of visiting a sunken city, you may ask? Granted, the principle of a sunken city is that is lies under water, and as a result, it is mostly invisible. But in the case of Kekova and Simena, some parts are barely submerged, and the crystal clear water on top gives them a mysterious touch. In any case, as we have said before; anything that involves a boat trip catches our attention. And the ...

Chasing the hidden waterfalls in Kabak

Kabak in Turkey is a little-known paradise some 15km past Ölüdeniz. It is too small to be called a village, so it is part of the nature-stretch called Faralya. People visit it for its stunning views, pristine beach, and general laid-back atmosphere. You won't find any major hotel chains here. Kabak has some small boutique hotels and some boho camping and glamping sites where you can also pop in for a meal ...

Is Xanthos, Turkey worth a visit?

A while back we told you to forget about Unesco in our post about Tlos. In that same post, we mentioned Xanthos as being part of the Lycian league, and a Unesco World Heritage site. In that perspective, it wouldn't be fair just to claim you can forget about Unesco, without actually showing you what you would miss out on if you did. After all, who are we to tell you what to do? Objectivity demands we let you ...

Turkish breakfast: Relaxing, authentic & healthy!

When in Turkey, make sure to have an authentic Turkish breakfast. It is what the Turks call a köy kahvaltı; where köy stands for village and kahvaltı means breakfast. In short, it is a traditional breakfast with mostly organic or homegrown and homemade food. It is like we said in the title relaxing, authentic and healthy. And if you ask us, the perfect way to start the day! But beware: Turkish breakfast is ...

Ölüdeniz: the Blue Lagoon in Black & White

Ölüdeniz must be one of the most famous and beautiful beaches in Turkey. It isn't hard to understand why people call it the blue lagoon. Even in winter time, on a grey day, the color of the water has all shades of blue. And while Ölüdeniz is a buzzing circus in the summertime, winter brings a very different vibe. All shops, bars, hotels, and restaurants on the 'strip' (or main street) and the surrounding ...
