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. ...

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 ...

Wandering the streets of Antalya Old Town

Kaleiçi or Antalya Old Town is unquestionably one of the must-see things in Antalya. Why? Because it is charming, picturesque, colorful, and it shows you a completely different Antalya than it's modern counterpart. When sipping your coffee in old town Antalya, you can hardly believe that this is part of a buzzing city with 1,3 million inhabitants and way more visitors during the summer months. The old city ...

Sidyma, Turkey: where cows pose next to Lycian Sarcophagi

Picture yourself visiting one of Turkey's many ancient sites. Are you on a guided tour or an excursion lead by a tour operator? Or are you somewhat looking for a more authentic experience and something off the beaten path? If you are interested in visiting a site that may be less impressive in size but is likely to leave you with far deeper impressions and an understanding of Lycian life, then consider ...

Exploring abandoned Saint Nicholas Island, Turkey

We may have mentioned it before; there are plenty of things to do in Fethiye, Turkey. One of our favorite places to visit must be Saint Nicholas Island. It's a little, abandoned island just off the coast of Gemile beach, past Kayaköy. 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, ...
