Short walk from the port about 5 minutes, the door was closed so we made a tour around the island, the view from the island was very good. But all around was dirty as usual in Turkey.

A walk up to the castle from the main pier and along a stretch of less busy marina is nice, as the road rises to a relatively exclusive area of the city one can have some stunning pictures of the castle and the surrounding crystal blue sea, the foliage and the wild flowers along with the wide open expanse of...

This site is slowly deteriorating. We visited in 2013 and then in Nov 2014 and noticed a huge difference. At one time you could almost walk right around the castle on the sea walk, with one section of scrambling, but now it is almost impossible unless you are daring.

Despite the castle itself being closed, the walk to and around the castle is still worthwhile in and of itself.
