An absolutely beautiful area in the Milas area of Turkey. Easily accessible from the Didim/Akbuk areas. Fantastic for nature lovers, history/archaeology buffs or for just enjoying the amazing views at every turn.

Great place to sit back & relax with local food and ancient ruins just a short walk away. Simple but delicious meals served on the terraces of local cafés & lots of sites to explore.

We stopped here on our way to Ephesus - it's stunning. The views are truly incredible. We went to Canli Balik restaurant and enjoyed Turkish pancakes whilst looking across the lake- an experience not to be missed!
