The cove is made up of three small bays and with the right amount of seclusion should you want to hold an impromptu picnic by the sea while you lose yourself in the beauty or in a good book. At the different coves, you will notice there are ruins of the ancient harbours that were probably used by the ancient city of Phaselis for trade and protection.

Porto Ceneviz Bay
Ceneviz Bay is not necessarily the most beautiful beach on the Turkish Riviera. What makes this place so special, however, is the way there. Whether you take the Lycian Trail or a boat, the journey will be unforgettable. The mountain scenery of the Taurus Mountains, the meter-high cliffs and the deep blue water are very impressive. The bay was once a popular transshipment point for merchant ships that travelled through the Mediterranean. There’s not much left of it today. The beach is completely natural. The clear water is very inviting to cool off and the view is incomparably beautiful.
Adrasan Bay is located in the District of Kumluca, in the Antalya Province in Turkey. The name Adrasan, also known as Cavuskoy (Çavuşköy in Turkish – “Cavus” means sergeant and “koy” means bay), comes from the Greek name Erdassa. The Bay of Adrasan extends along more than 2.5 km of Turkey’s southern coast. The bay includes the town of Adrasan, in addition to smaller villages and hamlets. The town (3-5 kilometers form the bay) offers a couple of local bars, a post office, small shops and an open-air market. Adrasan Bay is a naturally protected area, surrounded by a national park with pine forests, Taurus Mountains, blue water lagoons and sandy beaches. It is perfect for water sports and various outdoor activities, such as hiking, trekking, snorkeling, diving and deep sea fishing.
In July 2015, a forest fire erupted near the Adrasan Beach. No loss of life was reported. However, around 125 hectares of forestland was burned, affecting the junction of the Lycian Way, the beach road and the slopes of the mountains. All the trekking routes have since been restored and are traversable for hikers. All of the site’s tourist facilities have remained open.
The most popular way to get to Adrasan Bay is either by rental car, private transfer, taxi, public bus or shuttle bus – from Antalya airport (about 1.5 – 2 hours journey) or simply by using a mini bus ( dolmuş in Turkish) that travels to and from Kemer, Kumluca and other nearby towns.

Sandy beaches, blue lagoons and picturesque views from the Markiz Hill, located just at the entry of the Bay make Adrasan Bay an ideal place to collect positive energy from the sun, enjoy fresh air and enjoy the overwhelming smell of the pine trees combined with citrus groves.

Olympos (Olimpos) is a string of pansiyons and tourist activities strung along a narrow road on the bottom of a valley just inland from coastal Roman ruins in Lycia, Mediterranean Turkey. It might be generously labelled a “village”.
Ancient Lycian ruins, an isolated beach, accommodation in treehouses and flames that mysteriously burn from the side of a mountain are some of the attractions of Olympos (Olimpos) in Turkey’s Mediterranean south.
The modern “village” is named after the Lycian/Roman city that now lies in ruins just off the beach, which in turn is named after nearby Mt. Tahtalı, the highest mountain in the vicinity, which was called Olympos in Greek times. It must be noted that this is just one of 20-odd noticeably high mountains in that northeastern Mediterranean basin, which known as Olympos in antiquity. The Olympos mountain that was the abode of the Greek gods is a different mountain in northeastern Greece.
A hippie haven until recently, the completion of a surfaced road from the main highway in summer 2009 means that there are many more people (including families with children) heading there now compared to the past. In summer weekends when many day- (and night-) trippers pour in, Olympos is similar to many other resort towns. However, former habitués report that during autumn when everyone else quits the scene, Olympos can be just as beautiful as it used to be.
