The largest in Turkey, Saklikent gorge is nearly 20 Kilometres in length. Its cliffs rise up to a height of 300 meters on either side. It’s an awe-inspiring sight, and a must-see when you’re in Kalkan.
Explore Beneath the Waves
From shipwreck sites to a distinct, aquatic eco-system, the waters of Kalkan offer a wealth of nautical riches that demand to be seen.
Life is a Voyage
Hemingway said it well when he said, ‘It is good to have an end to journey toward; but it is the journey that matters, in the end.’ Unfortunately he then went and offed himself, but that is a whole other matter.
Imagine an endless stretch of beach that’s locked in amber. The Aegean turquoise turned jade, and tinged with bronze hues. Your toes sunk into soft, peppered sand, and a boisterous wind in your hair as you take in the closing refrains of the day.
Rediscover the Lycians
We hate to talk politics while on holiday, but it really has to be said that Patara is the cradle of democracy.
Imagine an endless stretch of beach that’s locked in amber. The Aegean turquoise turned jade, and tinged with bronze hues. Your toes sunk into soft, peppered sand, and a boisterous wind in your hair as you take in the closing refrains of the day. All the while, your gaze is trained on the burning horizon, watching a golden orb make its steady descent into the sea. This is Patara Beach at sunset. And at such moments in Lycian Turkey, it is customary to be pensive.
Take to the Seas
From pirate bays to Sunken Cities, the Lycian coast is rich with heroic history, ancient mystery and natural beauty that will inspire to the full. So whether you´re seeking adventure or tranquility, taking to the sea is a must in Lycia. Choose a lazy day cruise aboard a traditional gullet to explore the bays and islands while you soak in some sun and scenery. Or knock yourself out and sign up for a week long journey through unforgettable sites along Fethiye’s coasts.
Think turquoise sea and red earth. (Well, in places anyway.) Red like the wood that bleeds beneath the bark of Lycia’s trees. Take in their scent. That pungent perfume of cedar and pine, wild mint and thyme, night-blooming honey-suckle and jasmine …and all those other fragrant gifts of this land.
Then combine it with the smell of the clear, sea breeze, so it goes straight to your head to leave you slightly woozy. These were some of the little details which inspired the birth of TeraMare. Nature’s little harmonies in contrast. And then there’s the family component and the passion.
That’s another thing TeraMare is about - passion, and a lifestyle we seek to salvage in a world that’s rapidly losing the human element. Of course, with all the romanticism aside, we are also an alternative travel and haute holiday rental company based in Kalkan, Turkey. We offer all the services of a hotel and the freedoms of a self-catering holiday. Which means we promise to be there when you need us (with all the perks of Turkish hospitality) and leave you alone when you don’t. What better way to enjoy breath taking Lycia?Elest Ali
