The Turquoise Coast, (a safe haven in turbulant times) situated in South West Turkey is named after the beautiful colouring in the lakes, rivers and sea due to the limestone rock and also the abundant plantation which grows right down into the water. This fascinating area is attractive to tourists because of the fabulous climate, spectacular scenery and rich ancient history. The warm welcoming Turkish people enjoy having visitors from abroad and are friendly and courteous with tourists. It is normal to be offered tea when browsing in the shops and markets and to be treated like an honoured guest when invited into local homes.
!!It is strife free in this corner of Turkey, which is a vast country!! So. If you are feeling energetic it is easy to fill your holiday itinerary with something different every day. Locally it is fascinating to see the ancient Lycian tombs at nearby Dalyan, go on a river cruise to see the protected giant turtles, and stop off at the thermal mud baths for some beauty treatment. Gocek is a delightful local marina town frequented by the rich and famous, where you can book daily 12-Island yacht trips at very reasonable prices. Ancient archaeological sites of Roman ruins, deserted ghost villages and huge Greek amphitheatre are a must for the cultured tourist. For bird watching go to Koycegiz Lake and for Thermal Spas, to Sultaniye. An organized 3 hour day trip to Bodrum is worth the effort with many other spectacular day trips including Pummakkale for the healing waters and Olympos for the atmospheric perpetual mountain fires. Available locally are hiking, swimming, snorkelling, horse riding, sailing, canoeing, fishing, diving, river rafting and paragliding!
