Today this timeless village, set in a lush valley with some vineyards nearby, forms a memorial to Turkish-Greek peace and cooperation. In the evening, when the ruined village's churches are spotlit, Kayaköy is truly surreal. Our hike goes ahead to Soguk su Bay which is 45 minutes to Kayakoy.

In Overland Travels Private Sail and Hike tour, we visit The Patara ruins and Patara beach are located approximately in 10 kilometers west of the modern Turkish town of Kalkan in province of Antalya (actually Patara Turkey is much closer to Fethiye than Antalya - there are 225 km from Patara beach to Antalya). The distance from Fethiye to Patara beach Turkey is 75 km.During the wars between the successors of Alexander the Great the Patara ancient city was the major naval port and shipyard. In 42 BC Brutus gave an ultimatum to residents of Patara - he promised to spare all citizens of Patara and even release previously captured captives for the surrender of the city. Patara chose to give up. Then hike The Roman emperor Hadrian used to live in Patara ancient city for some time. The Apostle Paul and the Luke the Evangelist stayed here and on the way to Rome. In 138 BC the population of the Patara city was about 20,000 and Patara is also the birthplace of St. Nicholas (270 AD) - Archbishop of Myra and the prototype of Santa Claus. Today Patara Turkey is mostly known for its beautiful white sand beach. Patara Beach Turkey is a strip of white sand of 500m width stretching along the Mediterranean coast for 20 km. There are sunbeds, changing rooms, several places to eat and have fun on the beach. It is a place where tourists can relax in a quiet secluded atmosphere amid the stunning seascapes.
