Dreaming of the Turquoise Coast

I have traveled the world extensively but there are still many places I would like to visit, especially with my hubby who has seen so little. Those of you who know me know I adore the ocean. Looking back at my travel experiences my trip to Greece was one of my very favorites.

This led me to want to explore Turkey’s Mediterranean Coast, the Lycian and Turquoise Coast. So of course I instantly let my fingers do the shopping and started researching in this region.


One look at the incredible villas really piqued my interest. There are absolutely stunning properties for as little as $160US a week. A week! I have to post some photos as these are very pretty whitewashed homes that glow against the blue sky and adjoining Mediterranean Sea. Most have pools and a beach. I’d love to hear first hand if any of you have ever looked into, they all look intriguing; it would be hard to make a choice.

Pouring through a Turkey coast travel guide, I am even more inspired to visit this ancient land. In this region, there are three UNESCO World Heritage Sites: the rock tombs at Dalyan, the temple at Letoon and the ancient capital Xanthos. All of this cultural history and picture postcard beaches to boot. They even refer to this coast as The Pirate Coast for all the hidden coves and caves.

Off to dream of Pirates in Turkey….
