It is picture perfect and will appeal to culture freaks, history lovers, beach babes, and anyone who fancies 360° stunning nature views. And we might as well confess to it, ...

A visit to quaint Datça and ancient Knidos

Yes, quaint is one of the first words that come to mind when thinking about Datça in Turkey. Besides quaint, the Datça peninsula is also relatively untouched, of a stunning natural beauty, with plenty of coves and pristine beaches, home to Eski Datça (Old Datça) and Knidos, the ancient site at the tip of the Datça peninsula where the Mediterranean sea meets the Aegean. Visit Datça, and you'll be left in ...

Visiting Patara, Turkey’s longest beach with its own ancient site!

Patara is Turkey's longest beach. Your stroll can last a whopping 18km along this sandy beach with lovely dunes as a backdrop.  Patara beach is a delight for people who like walking or horseriding on the shore and for sunbathers and swimmers on the lookout for a natural beach, without the crowds, even in high season. This would be enough reason to visit Patara, you would think, but that's doing injustice to ...

The forgotten treasure of the Greek islands: Kastellorizo

The Greek islands… They are the home of myths and typical houses, sun, ouzo, history, and island-hoppers. But even those island-hoppers often miss Kastellorizo on their venture, and that’s a shame… Because Kastellorizo is most probably the prettiest island in the Dodecanese.

Sleepy, colorful and very serene Kastellorizo is small. Even when you are only there for the day, you don’t feel ...
