The Turquoise Coast/Lycia region
Turkey’s south western Mediterranean Coast called the Turquoise Coast or Lycia Region. It is one of the most popular areas with overseas tourists and has become one of the leading destinations for many first time and repeat visitors to Turkey.
The coast is scattered with fine sandy beaches, idyllic coves and crystal clear turquoise seas, with stunning backdrops of the Taurus Mountains, pine clad forests, picturesque valleys and waterfalls.
The Turquoise coast offers a great climate – with nearly 300 days of sunshine a year, temperatures rarely below 20 degrees and very little rainfall. The sea temperature is warmer here than on the Aegean Coast.
This region is steeped in history, with scores of ancient Lycian, Greek and Roman ruins throughout the area, such as Xanthos, Tlos, Myra, Simena and Olympos. There are also stunning natural features such as Saklikent Gorge, Oludeniz Beach and its Blue Lagoon, Patara Beach and the Patara River.
A wide range of outdoor and adventure activities are on offer. The Lycian Way, a 509 kilometre way-marked footpath leads walkers around the coast and mountains, starting from Fethiye and finishing in Antalya. Turkey has become a popular destination for paragliding enthusiasts, with tandem flights available from the Babadag Mountain to the beachfront at Oludeniz.
Other activities horse riding, jeep-safaris, boat-trips, sailing, water ski-ing, wind surfing, kite surfing and white water rafting. A visit to Turkey would also not be complete without a visit to a Hamam or Turkish Baths.
During the winter months, a newly opened ski resort is about an hour's drive away. For golf lovers, there is a course at Dalaman, with further courses planned for the region.
Hisaronu is a lively resort nestled in the mountains and pine clad hills above Olu Deniz beach. The main street offers a wide range of restaurants, shops and bars and is a popular for a night out after a long hot day by the pool or on the beach.
Hisaronu centre is a 5 minute stroll from the apartment. From Hisaronu it is possible to catch a Dolmus (mini-bus) to other parts of the local area, including Olu Deniz, Fethiye and Kayakoy.
Olu Deniz is one of the most beautiful and most photographed beaches in Turkey. It is about 10 minutes by Dolmus from Hisaronu. The world famous Blue Lagoon is accessed by a narrow inlet and is therefore sheltered from the open sea, thus offering calm clear blue and turquoise waters for safe bathing. The main beach at Olu Deniz is bordered by a promenade lined with shops bars and restaurants. The area offers numerous activities including paragliding from Babadag Mountain, trekking along the Lycian Way and taking a boat trip to the nearby Butterfly Gorge.
Fethiye is approximately 15-20 minutes by Dolmus from Hisaronu. Once the Lycian settlement of Telmessos (Land of Lights), Fethiye is a lively port and town where Turkish life and tourism co-exist. Traces of the early settlements can still be seen today including rock tombs, the most famous one being the temple tomb of Amyntas. There are also remains of a castle and an ancient amphitheatre.
Fethiye has a picturesque waterfront from where you can take boat trips around the 12 islands or watch the traditional wooden gullets, motor launches and fishing boats. The old town area is worth a visit with its bazaars selling everything from aromatic herbs and spices to ‘designer’ clothes, turkish delight, carpets, leather goods and hand crafted jewellery. Further along the coast is the suburb of Calis Beach offering a beach front, watersports and numerous bars and restaurants.
Kayakoy, known locally as the Ghost Village, is a deserted Greek Settlement, steeped in history. It is possible to explore the ruins on foot, on horseback or even take a camel ride. There are a number of small restaurants serving local cuisine.
