Just 12 miles from Ephesus (an intriguing Roman city), Kuşadası is an artistic wonder. Its 2,000 year-old theatre still has performances today!

Kuşadası’s breath-taking architecture and wondrous sites such as Selçuk fortress have been main attractions for thousands of tourists every year.

The city itself holds many different stalls in a vast bazaar, and the local seafood is to die for.

Rich in Ottoman and 14th Century history, Çeşme is a beautiful place for a beach and spa day where you can take it easy and unwind.

The Ottomans were defeated by Russian ships in 1770, and there is also a historical Ottoman caravansary that is quite popular for visitors.

Dalyan Ildur

Just a short boat ride from Ildur, Dalyan is quickly becoming a popular location.

You can eat at some excellent restaurants on the waterside and enjoy the sights right from your table.

Bodrum the capital of gulet cruises

At night, Bodrum is even more of a sight to see from the sea.

It is home to the Castle of St. Peter, which also houses one of the city’s most remarkable museums; the Bodrum Museum of Underwater Archaeology.

The ruins of one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, the Mausoleum at Halicarnassus, can be visited in Bodrum.

It was built originally between 353 and 350 BC for Mausolus of Caria and his wife, Atemisia.

Datca in Turkey


Datça is just north of Greek island of Symi, and has amazing scenery.

It is a quiet town relatively shied away from tourism.

There is a relaxing natural hot spring located in the centre of Datça , from where and you can see the coastline of Greek islands of Kos, Symi, and Rhodes right from the water’s edge.


There is a larger Bencik town located in Turkey, but Bencik in Hisarönü Bay is the small inlet located east of Datça and is the narrowest part of the peninsula.

There are no places to eat at Bencik, but the views alone are enough for a quick stopover during the day.


Before it was conquered, Knidos was ancient Greek city of Caria famous for displaying the statue of Aphrodite by Praxiteles of Athens.

You can still visit the location where the statue once remained and see the ornate marble pedestal that held the statue.

Knidos is also well-known for its amazing views and natural harbour, alongside its history.

Keci Buku

Keci Buku (also known as Orhaniye Bay) is much like Bencik; beautiful, peaceful, and very relaxing. It’s a good spot for swimming during the day, and you can also visit the ancient Caria Bybassos ruins.

The bay is very shallow up to around 500 metres in length, so it can look quite odd to look out over the bay and see what appears to be people walking right out into the ocean!


Selimiye is a bit different – the town has many visitors that come by boat or gulet, and they practice in the art of boat-making, so you might get the rare chance to see a gulet being crafted!

A newly developed boardwalk has been completed which allows you to walk the length of the bay area and look out at the calming waters.

There are also many great restaurants that serve the freshest fish.



Marmaris is a bustling city that started with humble beginnings.

It’s is one of the main shopping and trading locations in Turkey, and is a very popular destination for tourists.

It’s a nice place to shop for souvenirs and it has some delicious dishes from exquisite restaurants.

There are many things to see and do in Fethiye that you could easily spend one or two days here and still want to come back again.

If history and culture is your main interest, you might find the Fethiyes’ Roman Amphitheatre and Lycian Rock Tombs to your liking.

Not far below Fethiye lies Ölüdeniz, a popular and protected part of the Turkish coast that offers amazing scenery and pleasant spots for relaxing.

Ölüdeniz means “dead sea” as its waters are very calm and offer a very meditative experience.


Kalkan is a buzzing hub of activity for ancient tours – but you won’t find the masses of crowds here as you would elsewhere.

It’s a relatively unspoiled area of the Lycian coast, and offers amazing hospitality, food, and a relaxing atmosphere for you to truly unwind and rejuvenate.

For those who like to shop and indulge a little, the smaller town of Kaş just 25 miles from Kalkan and another unspoiled area, is a great place to wind down.

Ancient areas still exist around Kas and Kalkan, including the small town of Aperlae, which has some amazing underwater ruins left over from its ancient Lycia days.

Just a short way away from its main province, Kale, Üçağız has some intriguing attractions and serene views.

You can visit Lycian tombs that are over 2,000 years old, plus the marble ruins of a “sunken city” located beneath the water just offshore.

The town is becoming more popular, but many quaint restaurants can be frequented for your share of fine wine and great local food.

For some fantastic architecture, you can visit the Lycian rock tombs in the ancient Greek town of Myra, or the Roman theatre which is currently under restoration.
