The Lycian Coast, the region in the southwest of Turkey, is one of the most beautiful stretches of coastline in the eastern Mediterranean. The coastal strip between Marmaris and Kas is the absolute insider’s tip among Turkey connoisseurs. The well-known holiday regions such as Marmaris, Turunc and Icmeler, plus Sarigerme and Fethiye with the world-famous lagoon of Ölüdeniz, are part of the Lycian Coast.
For individualists who want to escape mass tourism and spend their holidays in picturesque nature and a romantic atmosphere, we recommend the holiday resorts including Dalyan, Patara, Kalkan or Kas. The picturesque village of Dalyan at the mouth of the river with the same name, with small family-run hotels and guesthouses, is the ideal place to spend a holiday among the locals while enjoying comfort and nature. This is also the location of Iztuzu beach, where the famous giant loggerhead sea turtles lay their eggs every year.
It is not without reason that Marmaris and the surrounding area with the resorts of Icmeler and Turunc are so popular with travellers from the UK. The turquoise sea and the picturesque bays surrounded by lush green mountains provide the dreamlike backdrop.
Whether you just want to laze on the beach, take long walks along the promenade or dive into the action-packed nightlife, you won’t get bored here!
Excursions or hikes in the surrounding area, especially in the National Park, are always worthwhile: impressive views over the picturesque bays and the crystal-clear turquoise sea and untouched nature will inspire you.
Incidentally: the "Blue Voyage", a boat tour in a traditional gulet through the dreamlike and secluded bays on the Lycian coast, also starts from Marmaris.
Dalaman is the Lycian Coast’s destination airport.
Look forward to it - we'll take you there!
