Sailing Turkey - coastal adventures for yacht travellers
This town makes a great central base from which to explore the surrounding area but there is also plenty to see and do here. If diving is your passion you’ll be spoilt for choice with numerous prime spots and wrecks to drive. Kayaking trips are a lovely way to discover the coastline from a different perspective. Hiking tours are also extremely popular here and the views from the top of the surrounding mountains are breathtaking.

There are some really interesting historical sights to see here, including the King’s Tomb at the top of locally-named Slippery Street. You can also see the unusual Lycian tombs carved into the sides of the dramatic cliffs overlooking the town. To the north, the Antiphellos Theatre is well-preserved and definitely worth a look.

If all this sounds a bit much like hard work, you can simply hop in a water taxi take it easy on one of the three beaches here on the Liman Agzi peninsula. Bliss.
