Places to visit alone

OK the scenario is I do ski/winter holidays she loves the sun so were coming to Olu.

We'll do some trips together but as I can't stand lying around a beach or pool I'll be looking to visit some places on my own, which are best to do as a couple and which on my own.

Will definately get a car for Saklikent so I can spend longer than the hour or so the excursions cater for plus I'll be able to visit Tlos and Kalkan.

Other than that open to either organised trips or DIY

Cheers, Paul

I've got a suggestion for a place you could visit together - Patara which is about 1 hour drive from Olu Deniz, after Saklikent Gorge. There is a magnificent beach here, and all manor of ancient ruins hidden amongst the sand dunes at the back that you can explore while she basks in the sun! Also it is a pretty little village. Also nearbu are more ruins at Xanthos and Pinara. And Kalkan is another place I am sure she would love to visit - well its got some pretty little shops and great restaurants!

Nearer at home you can visit the old abandoned Greek village at Kaya Koyu - a delightful village in beautiful rural setting. Lots of nice places where you can sit in the shade for a cool drink or a gozlem (big savoury or sweet pancake). You could do this by dolmus(mini bus). Or if you go by car, then you could drive on to the beautiful virtually deserted Gemiler Beach.

When are you planning on visiting? Remember it does get very hot in the summer months - especially when walking around ruins. Take plenty of water and try to go either very early in the morning or late in evening.
