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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

Tlos: the oldest Lycian city

Forget about Unesco. If your guidebook on Turkey doesn't say that Tlos is an exceptional site to visit, throw it away. :-) Yes, Unesco sites have an outstanding cultural or heritage value, but the list shouldn't result in you losing out on a remarkable place to visit just because it wasn't mentioned in it. Fortunately, we love doing research, venturing off the beaten path, and sharing our findings. Trust ...

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, ...

Stratonikeia, a well-kept secret in Southern Turkey

Mid-way, between Milas and Muğla in Turkey lies Stratonikeia, a well-preserved ancient site from the Carian times. Stratonikeia was one of the most significant Carian cities, and it has been inhabited continuously since the Bronze Age. That's 1.500 BC! So how come you've never heard of it? Or you may even have driven past it and failed to stop! Turkey has so many ancient sites that people are focussing on ...

Lake Köyceğiz, the non-touristy gate to Kaunos

In all honesty, this title doesn't do the lake and its village justice. Köyceğiz is not on most people's radar when traveling to Turkey, yet it is right behind the corner of a major attraction: Kaunos. Most people visit Kaunos from Dalyan, which is right across the river. Granted, it is the easiest way, but you have to like the tourist circus that comes with it. If you are searching for a more authentic and ...
