Unspoilt Turkey

Hi, have been to dalyan twice and now want to try somewhere else in turkey that is similar to Dalyan. By similar to Dalyan I mean, good beaches, not too crowded and relatively quiet night life. I have come across fethiye & oludeniz but some have said these places are really touristy?

Also have liked the idea of Kas, but have been told it quite pricey?

Any ideas welcome

Many Thanks

I think Attagul's "Cirali" at the end was meant to be Çalis.

''unless you stay at Cirali which is just a jungle of hotels and villas.''

I too think that Attagul must have been referring to another place because Cirali is far from a jungle of hotels and villas...must be a typo :=))

Oh I am so sorry....

of course I did not mean to say Cirali (that is the last description that would apply!)

the last sentence of my post should have read:

"unless you stay at CALIS which is just a jungle of hotels and villas..."

A very special place is Patara.

It is just a small village with some nice family run hotels and pensions, some very decent restaurants and a few shops.

Nightlife is limited to the restaurants and (in 2006) two or three bars, sometimes with life music.

But the best of all is the marvellous beach.

About 15 km sand, dunes and sea, just a small area with sunbeds and then you can walk for miles quite alone.

Between the village and the beach there is a archaeological excavation, very interesting.

You can have a lot of trips by dolmus or by private taxi (not too expensive), for example to Kalkan, Kas, Myra, Fethiye, Gömbe ( with a lake in the mountains),Elmali, Pinara, Tlos(lycian rock tombs area)Saklikent (canyon) Xanthos, or just have a look to the small typical villages with grapewine and fresh trouts.

Patara is not too touristy just yet, it is still a hidden gem.

Have a nice time
