Great place to go, just off the tourist trail. Can get there with Dolmus or hire a car. Head out to Kayakoy from Hisaronu and take a left turn on roundabout after The Ruins. Follow on for a few miles and you will find it. Wear jellies on you feet as there are a few rocks underfoot. Car park is... More

Walk through the door and you can't explain it, you just feel peace. This little pearl of a store is a really cool place. The workers are the sweetest people and knew how to make you feel like you needed to go nowhere else. Great merchandise. Just ask, they probably have it. Clothes, incense, quartz, oils and a whole bunch... More

Island is full of remains of old churches, tombs and have a very beautiful view from the top of island. It is not easy to get to top and you have to be careful to get down. You can get there by private boat or boat trip from Oludeniz.
