Situated on the Marmaris peninsula
, this idyllic traditional Turkish fishing village is set on a wide bay with a mountain backdrop and a ruined fortress on a hill overlooking the azure sea.
Fishermen mend their nets on the pebble beach as their colourful boats bob in the clear waters of the bay.
The catch of fresh fish and seafood
is served the same day at the seafront restaurants, renowned for their delicious fare. The only sounds are those of the craftsmen going about their daily work at the village boatyard and the call to prayer, the haunting chant of the Muezzin, from the tiny whitewashed mosque. This beautiful region is renowned for its rich harvest of almonds and fragrant herbs such as oregano and sage, as well as its famous, delicious pine honey.
It is a rare pleasure to be in an area where you are more likely to come across a herd of goats or a farmer riding a donkey, than a coach load of tourists!
