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 ...

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 ...

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, ...

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 ...
