BODRUM is a good starting point for your journey along the Carian coasts which offer
panorama of mythology and history, and spectacular scenery outlined by sandy beaches, rocky coves and inlets.
After leaving MUGLA, at the top you will be fascinated at the sight of extended restless and blue waters of GÖKOVA bay. A drive along the twisting road stretching down to sea level offers you a magnificent view of the bay. Then comes an avenue of eucalyptus trees providing a welcoming shade away from the sun. Then you'll be alone with MARMARIS to enjoy endless entertainments of the pleasant nights and twittering sunny days.
As you approach FETHIYE You'll see the pretty town tucked into the eastern corner of the wide bay. The region was the heartland of ancient Lycia.
Wherever you go in FETHIYE ancient Lykian city Telmessos and rock tombs cut into the cliffs rising up behind the town will always be watching you.
Butterflies valley is the heaven on earth.ÖLÜDENIZ has one of the most gorgeous scenary in the WORLD.
Between GÖCEK and FETHIYE Don't miss the opportunity to see Katranci Bay and Kizil Island.
It's time to sail from bay to bay. KAS is the center for boating trips to the nearby sunken cities around KEKOVA Island. Also there are full day-boat trips departing for Simena, Kaputas beaches and Patara. There are daily boat excursions to Demre, Myra and Aya Nicola-Saint Nicholas- from KAS.

ANTALYA is the pearl of the Mediterranean Coast. Combining history and culture it deserves the title of "Capital of TURKISH tourism." Traces of Byzantine, Roman and Seljuks architecture and cultures can still be seen in the rustic old town. Take a time to visit the archeological museum which houses the findings from the historic ages of ANATOLIA. Konyaalti and Lara coasts invite you into its crystal clear waters.
Our last stop is ALANYA. You may join daily tours to Side, Perge, Aspendos. Inside the city Alanya castle, Kizil Kule, Damlatas, Fosforlu and Korsanli caves are worth seeing.
