This brand new excursion comprises highlights including visiting Butterfly Valley, swimming in blue caves and at beautiful beaches, 3 delicious meals at stunning restaurants, lovely countryside drives, a mysterious ghost town and many more surprises.
We will collect you from your accommodation between 8:00 – 8:30 in the morning and will take you straight to our breakfast place which is a beautiful hotel hidden in the countryside near Göcek. This restaurant is in a peaceful and picturesque location, with a scenic garden and grounds, and a river flowing alongside.
Here we will enjoy our awesome Turkish breakfast. The long table will be laden with a variety of the most delicious traditional dishes for your enjoyment.
After breakfast, 15 minutes drive to one of the best scenic spots for photography.
Then 30 minutes drive to Ölüdeniz, for an hour of shopping or swimming – whichever you prefer.
At 12:00 we depart by boat to Butterfly Valley which takes 45 minutes. Half way along we have a swimming stop at the Blue Cave, which has a stunning atmosphere. Butterfly Valley is located in a spectacular cove and apart from the few people able to brave the steep descent, it is only accessible by boat.
At 1:00 pm we will have lunch at Butterfly Valley, at the restaurant beside the beach, surrounded by stunning scenery. After lunch if you fancy walking, there is an awesome walk through the woods to the waterfall. This is along a proper walking path and takes 25 minutes each way. You may be lucky enough to see some of the many colourful butterflies which breed and live here. After returning to the beach from our walk, we will enjoy an hour’s swimming break in the crystal clear water here at Butterfly Valley. We then travel back to Ölüdeniz by boat which takes 45 minutes.
Next we drive 30 minutes to the beautiful town of Kayakoy which is called “Ghost Town” due to many of the ancient houses being uninhabited for historical reasons, which we will explain to you. Here we will wander around the fascinating and atmospheric ghost town. There is a gorgeous spot by the church to watch the view from the top of the hill. If you do not like walking, there are beautiful authentic coffee shops and restaurants where you can relax and wait for us.
Then we will drive just 5 minutes to a beautiful wine house to taste delicious Turkish homemade wines. If you wish, you may buy some bottles to take back home.
After a further 5 minute drive we will reach a popular and awesome restaurant called Cinbal to enjoy our unforgettable delicious dinner. You will be served lots of mezes, salads, and mixed grills. Alternatively, if you prefer, you can cook your own meats on your own bbq. There are also vegetarian or vegan options there. After dinner it will take around an hour’s drive to get back home.
