  • A very lovely town. It also seems to have accommodation which would be great for people wanting to get away from a rushed life. It's unfortunate that tour boats from big cities don't make an actual stop there when doing boat tours. Highly recommend the iamherecafe for ice cream which is made on sight.
  • Ruins of an old fortress, only access from the sea. Many nice restaurants with great local organic food, because it's not affected by massive tourism. Local hand made clothes and souvenirs also in offer for reasonable price. If you want to go all the way up to the hill where the fortress is you need to pay 12 Turkish lira and i think it's little bit overpriced just to get a nice view of the bay for few photos so that's the only reason why i didn't rate five stars.
