Part of a national park, it is a key biodiversity area, rich in birdlife and the breeding ground of the endangered loggerhead turtle (caretta caretta). Luckily the beach has been declared off-limits for development because of the turtles, they are nearing extinction and protection of their nesting sites on the Turkish coast is very important. The beach is closed after sunset from May to October to give the turtles peace in which to lay their eggs as it is the second most important turtle nesting beach in Turkey

Add some adventure!
If you are interested in trekking/walking, it is worth looking at the Lycian Way; rated as one of the top ten walks in the world.
The Lycian Way is over 500km long, and was founded in the early 2000’s by Kate Clow, a British woman who had moved to Turkey. Using a combination of ancient paths, caravan trails and forest roads, she waymarked the full length of the trail, connecting villages, mountain hamlets, and ancient lycian and roman sites, to create an enjoyable walk with beautiful vistas, for all hikers, new and experienced.
