A Week on the Turquoise CoastBy SU Magazin / 2022-06-08
Cap off your coastal journey on the Turquoise Coast, explore Kaş and Antalya or float away on a Blue Cruise.
Day 1: Dalyan
Swim in the river or take a boat down to the fine sand of beautiful Iztuzu beach, home to nesting loggerhead turtles, and explore the ruins of ancient Kaunos across the river.
Day 2: Kayakoy
On the way to the abandoned Greek village of Kayakoy is the market town and yacht harbor of Fethiye, with abundant eating places, rock-cut Lyc, tombs, a fine archaeological museum, and a lively Friday farmers’ market.
Day 3: Patara
Visit Patara, an ancient city that combines a stunning turtle-nesting beach with the romantic, dune engulfed ruins of Roman Patara.
Day 4: Saklikent Gorge and Tlos
Visit the hinterland of a region known in ancient times as Lycia by exploring Saklikent Gorge, formed by waters tumbling down from Mount Akdag.
Day 5: Ucagiz and Kale
Explore the lively resort of Kas, formerly a tranquil Greek fishing village. To the southwest, on a magnificent stretch of heavily indented, islet-dotted coast, sits the village of Ucagiz.
Day 6: Cırali
Follow the beautiful coastal road from Ucagiz to Cirali. Swamped in citrus groves fronting a shingle beach and backed by high, forested peaks, this low-rise, low-key resort is the ideal place to relax.
Day 7: Phaselis
A short drive brings you to the beachside ruins of ancient Phaselis, where a skeletal Roman aqueduct rises above pines.
