TURKEY

This is my favourite place we’ve been as a family. We went for two weeks in April which was ideal as it was not too hot nor too busy. The locals told me it’s hotter than hell in summer and gets ridiculous amounts of tourists. I liked the warm fresh weather we had. The sea was too cold to swim in but we could dip in and enjoy playing on the beach.

The sea was too cold to swim in but we could dip in and enjoy playing on the beach. The Adrasan Coast has everything that makes us happy; natural beauty, boho people and places as well as inexpensive and delicious food. We try not to make too lengthy blogs that elicit every detail and let you fill in the details through your own adventures…however we’ve done all the groundwork and can definitely tell you where to go! As always we are on a budget, living as close to the earth as we can, and sharing with you any organic and/or one of a kind experienes/places.

-Cirali- This is a hippy haven. I need to subdivide bullet points and list the awesome bits about Cirali alone. 

  • There is an amazing herbalist run bio shop that I miss, and love called HERBISI.

  •  There are chickens running around everywhere, and wild tortoises.

  •  Yoga on the beach and offered in countless resorts (which aren’t snobby resorts, I mean cool boho hut style resorts). 

  • Countless cute cabins to stay in

  • Bikes to rent, it’s biking and walking friendly

  • Crazy affordable food

  • Beautiful beaches with stunning mountain backdrop; Cirali and Olympos Beach.

  • Olmpos Antik Kenti, Local Historical Site

  • Yoruk Café actually has good pide even though I put off going there because it was so popular. Their pide is tasty.


-Mount Chiimaera. Wow, seriously real flames just bursting out of a mountain. It’s outstandingly awesome. We had the mountain to ourselves as we got up before sunrise and put our kids both in their slings and carried them up so we could watch the sunrise. One of my favourite memories ever. We also made a stellar breakfast in the flames of boiled eggs, and fire cooked bananas stuffed with tahini goodness.. 


- Turkish breakfast, seriously we make this most weekends now, it’s simple really but you feel like you’re dining like a queen (or king). Our favourite spot for a Turkish breakfast was Tropik. We just felt like we were at a mad tea party sitting in a river with ducks cruising around. More and more dishes kept coming and it was fun. 


-Antalya, Kaleici (the old district) has lovely architecture and the views over the sea are breath taking. We enjoyed drinking from giant teapots of tea in the open outdoor areas to people watch and relax as a family. 


-Kemer-This town is definitely more overrun with tourists but we didn’t write it off as it was a good place to stop for the kids to play in the park and to have a coffee.


-Beycik is a random little mountain village area but we discovered this unique and lovely organic restaurant where all the food is made with love and care. Sibel’s Four Seasons Café and Restaurant is set on their family property using local products they grow. 


-Kas-This place is so cool. It is touristic but it still maintains its life, and character. Take your pick of affordable and charming restaurants. We liked sitting at Oburus Momus as it had a tiny and lovely outdoor dining area. The kids can play at the little park near the waterfront and enjoy local goat ice cream, yes!


-Kalkan- More popular than Kas and often people prefer it (but we like Kas more!). Kalkan does have a lovely old town and some yummy places to eat. It also has a beach and Kas does not. Our favourite place was Botanik Garden Bar for a fun and exceptional drink experience. We had refreshing virgin mojitos in a treetop seating area. 


-Kekova Boat Trip-you get to see a sunken city and cruise amongst crystal clear turquoise waters. We had a lot of fun on our boat trip and were fed very well. We also stopped at Ucagiz, a city on the coastline which is impossible to reach by car. If I were you I would try to spend the night at Ucagiz.
