The Turquoise Coast/Lycia region
"Looking back over twenty-five years of exploration in Anatolia, I remember with most pleasure my journeys in Lycia... the country has, at least for me, a fascination not equaled elsewhere. The scenery is impressive, often spectacular, and seen by moonlight is out of this world; and the ancient monuments, especially of course the tombs, have a quality of their own."
George Bean, Lycian Turkey
"Take a blind man to Lycia, and he’ll immediately know from the smell of the air exactly where he is. The acrid perfume of lavender, the pungent fragrance of wild mint and thyme, will tell him."
Cevat Sakir "Fisherman of Halicarnassus",
famous Turkish author
Southwest Turkey, along and inland from the popular "Turquoise Coast", was home to the ancient Lycians who were one of the most enigmatic people of antiquity. Although little historical record has been left behind them, what has been discovered reveals a fascinating people culturally distinct from the rest of the ancient world. Around twenty major sites remain today with the Lycians' unusual funerary architecture dominating the breathtaking unspoiled land of Lycia.

Other places to Visit
East from Marmaris (described on the Lycian coast pages) to the entrance to Fethiye Korfezi (the Fethiye Gulf), is approximately 30 miles. The first bay you encounter on leaving Marmaris (Aksaz Limani) is a military exclusion zone, not available to yachts. The first usable anchorage en route is at Ekincik, about half way along. From here, take an excursion to Dalyan to see the rock tombs, ancient ruins, and the beach where turtles nest.
