Lycian Way

Reviewed By melih120 - Istanbul, Turkey

I and my wife spend some time in Fethiye which is the beginning point of the Lycian Way. During the ancient times, Lycian were connected the harbours with the cities on the Mountains by this ways. The landscape is beatiful. The route ends in Antalya. Anybody who visit Antalya, Fethiye or somewhere between these two cities must walk at least some part of the Lycian Way. The only drawback is the hot weather during July and August.

Saklikent Milli Parki

Reviewed By James S - Wiltshire

This is a truly wonderful place to visit, as long as it is not too busy, but it is a popular tourist attraction, so go with the flow.
This area Of Turkey is supplied with millions of gallons of water from the Mountains, and even in mid summer there is water flowing everywhere.
We were brought here given a trip up the Gorge(upstream) then had a very nice lunch, then drinks by the water to relax for a while.
Remember a small coin to use the toilets .
After we were offered the choice go downstream in a rubber ring or drive the short distance and meet up with the rubber ringers as they came down stream.
But remember this is fresh water very cold from a mountain.
If you go on one of the Jeep trips to here, be ready to get WET!
The tour guides had a professional photographer who took many more wonderful pictures, so we could enjoy our visit.
Please note these are memories from 2008 on our first trip to Oludeniz.

Tlos

Reviewed By Linda D - Utrecht, The Netherlands

What agreat wonder of different civilizations!
Unfortunately we only had one hour here, because we were in a combined day trip. If you are passionate about history and culture, I would definitely recommend taking more time!
The paths are dusty and slippery because of the dry sand, make sure to wear appropriate shoes.

Kayakoy

Reviewed By juniebabes - Hebburn, United Kingdom

Easy to get to on the local bus, having read the history prior to visiting, found the whole experience quite humbling, church is under restoration, so wasn't able to look inside, but the way the houses had been built onto the hill side is quite amazing.
Went at sunset, which was wonderful.
Lovely lady with local crafts at the start of the village, and a restaurant across the road.
Well worth a visit especially if you like history.

Billy's Beach

Reviewed By Les_Elaine - Wirral

We have visited a few Beaches on the lagoon and found the water at the ones you get to first stays too shallow for too long with the opposite at the far end. the water at billy's was perfect for us with two youngish children. It stayed fairly shallow for 15m or so then went deep quite quickly. The food and drinks were quite reasonable and the staff friendly. End of season and the chairs and pedallos had seen better days but this didn't spoil our day. Many thanks.

Old Town

Reviewed By Escape-overseas - Stevenage, United Kingdom

Old covered streets housing numerous restaurants and bars, together with traditional Turkish shops, including carpets and jewelry. Great place to rest a while, make the most of some Turkish hospitality, and watch the world go by - people watching is an entertainment in itself.

Gizlikent Selalesi

Reviewed By Linda C - France

Very Nice waterfall Just a few kilometers Before Saklikent.
I suggest To rent a car and go there by your own means because tours propose it but you dont have Time enough To enjoy.
A lot of stairs so person with refusés Mobility can't access.
The same for children except If you can carry Them.
Wear special water shoes To walk easily on the slippering stones.
The landscape is fabulous. The waterfall is not ecxeptional but it's Nice and refreshing after a walk.

Ancient Rock Tombes

Reviewed By Escape-overseas - Stevenage, United Kingdom

Situated on and in the cliff face overlooking the old town and harbour they can be easily accessed from the town, either walking up the steep streets, or perhaps more readily using a taxi to avoid the initial exertion. If you want a closer look for a small fee you can hike up the path and steps to get to the main tomb. Although, graffiti abounds on the walls, nothing appears sacred. Nevertheless since these tombs have been hewn out of the rock face they are impressive and worth the visit.

Pinara Antique City

The settlement of Pinara was one of the principal cities of Lycia and existed as early as the 5th century BC. The site is in untouched mountain setting and offers stunning view of the Xanthos valley.

Reviewed By Peter G - Bebington

Pinara is not readily accessible, but for those who like ancient sites it is a gem of a place. I could have spent the whole day there, just investigating. The Amphitheatre is in good condition. It is wonderful to see the rock tombs high up from the ground. There are other tombs where access is straightforward. You need a good imagination to recognise many of the remains, so do read up on the place before you go in order to take full benefit of the visit. Take binoculars to take full advantage of seeing everything. Good footwear is advisable. If ancient sites are not your thing, then it is a long way to go.
