Ruins & Fishing villages, dazzling beaches, boat cruises

relax on the beach

Beautiful beaches, turquoise seas, Kalkan

Discover the myriad of ancient city rock tombs, shore side ruins and exotic flowers toppling over whitewashed houses that speckle the scenic mountainous coastline of little inlets, private coves and dazzling white sandy beaches of the Mediterranean Coast. Soak up warm rays aboard a relaxing ‘gulet’ yacht cruise and enjoy many different water sports along this sparkling turquoise coast. A perfect region to extend or conclude your trip.

Main Mediterranean Coast Highlights:

A whole string of ancient cities embellish the shores and beaches of the Mediterranean, making exploration by boat or land very exciting.

Traveling from Antalya to Kalkan, Fethiye and Bodrum, passing picturesque little villages along the way offers wonderful sights, natural parks and historical finds. See the ancient theatre at Aspendos, the stadium at Perge, the beach-side ruins at Olympos and Phaselis, the Lycian rock-cut tombs of the ancient Lydia, the Church of St. Nicolas of Myra and the underwater ruins at Kalkan..

Or how about the pure pleasure of relaxing on a small sea yacht cruising in the sun aboard one of the perfect vessels for navigating the small inlets of this coast – in a traditional wooden yacht or ‘gulet’. Each day, travel a step further along the coast and anchor in small bays for fishing swimming snorkeling or diving, or ashore to sites of ancient city ruins above.

Alternatively, stay ashore relaxing in a quiet beach-side hotel swimming and relaxing. Enjoy a myriad of adventure and water sports – from canoeing to parasailing, or hiking surrounding tracks over hills and towards snow peaked mountains, through tall grasses, wild flowers and piny forests.
