I really loved this place. Nice restaurant and good vibe. The food is a little basic, but pleasant. The restaurant staff are very nice and happy. The beach is pleasant. Just the water was a little dirty in places, with washed up debree. If you snorkle out further it is amazing!!
You have to check out the hidden cave on the left side of the bay further out to sea (when you are stood looking to the sea from the beach).
You can climb into its serine area and feel wonder and comfort. Then you are able to swim out of the cave to the outside waters!! The view in this point is sensational and a must for adventurers! Xx

Deffo coming again xx

We also hired kayaks and explored the rock land, again amazing sights! We even saw 2 cuttlefish, amazing!

1 hour by Dolmus from Óvaçic. There are a lot of houses before reaching the beach and some restaurants and a supermarket.
The beach is nice and have nice colors as the rest of beaches. The rocks in this beach are bigger so is even harder to get in and out of the beach.
Good for snorkeling but not a lot of fish, just those little white/grey fish.
As in all the places in this country, a lot of garbage everywhere.
Be aware that the Dolmus here passes every 1 hour, there isn't as much frequency as in ölüdeniz

After arriving to Kabak Köyü, a remote valley close to Fethiye which you can only reach by car or bus (which stops at 7pm), with nothing but nature and tree houses around, I thought I had found heaven on earth. As a solo female traveler who didn’t speak Turkish, I kept my wits about me, however still received unwanted attention, comments and advances from the local males (including those who work in the camps.) I highly advice solo female travelers to avoid this place unless you are in a group with guys or can speak Turkish. There is NO Police or hospital in the valley, although most places have WiFi, it can be spotty and often you cannot get phone signal. I tried to fight my gut instinct because the place is truly breathtaking and stayed 4 nights, trying to make the most of my holiday, however, was made to feel uncomfortable and unsafe on 3/4 of the nights that I was there, and on multiple occasions. On top of which, I heard multiple gunshots in the forrest one evening. Unless you have a car, there’s no way to leave the valley after 7pm. I feel so bad having to write any of this, because the location, a lot of the people I met and most of the camps were great, but it’s an honest account of my own experience as a solo traveler and I want other girls to know what they’re getting into if they choose to head there alone.

It is a quite famous place but it is also really overrated.It is dirty and abandoned one. It is a place for backpackers and radical chic. There are better places. The only positive aspect was the bus service from Fethiye direct to the beach.

I got the dolmus from Oludeniz and walked down from the bus stop, not easy underfoot but great walk down. The beach is lovely and there is a nice restaurant at the bottom too. I got a taxi back which was a bit of a rip off but I didn't fancy the hike back up..

If you want to chill out drinking Efes and watching the sun go down then the bar on Kabak beach is the perfect place to do it. The music is pure Cafe Del Mar style covers of anything and everything.

This is a stunning area which is unspoilt. There are a couple of little cafes with stunning views over the mountains and ocean.However to get to Kabak beach it is a fairly difficult climb down so is not suitable for very young children, the elderly, disabled or very unfit. However if you are happy to do the 5 kilometer walk down (and back) to the bay then you will be rewarded with a totally unspoilt beach and bay with magnificent scenery towering above you. Take drinks and food if making the trip down to the beach.

I absolutely adore Kabak and hope it doesn't get anymore built up than it is as it's completely perfect at the moment and I wouldn't change it a bit! If you want to visit the proper Turkey then you must visit Kabak, quaint little restaurants overlooking a beautiful cove, turquoise blue water, fantastic snorkelling and amazing views!

You can get a dolmus very easily from Oludeniz and the view there is breathtaking and even better on the return journey as the sun was setting!

We have been twice to the Olive farm in Kabak. We took the local bus from Oludeniz in the early morning and travelled 45 minutes to through the mountains until we reached Kabak.
The place is absolutely stunning, with far reaching views of the sea and mountains and butterfly valley down below.
The Olive farm is delightful. You can spend the day, or book an overnight stay in one of their wooden chalets for the complete experience. We arrived for their "village breakfast" I am not joking, but we didn't need to eat all day! You can also book lunch which is all home cooked and is excellent both in quality and price. The icing on the cake is the sheer beauty of sitting by the infinity pool with the sea beyond, or sitting in the Olive Garden with a good book and just soaking up the atmosphere.
An unforgettable experience that should not be missed!

Kabak village is a unique in my experience in Turkey. A very eco friendly and conscious valley Kabak is quite rightly a challenge to get to - keeping visitor numbers at a sustainable level. Amazing beauty and very laid-back, friendly with a bohemian atmosphere.
