This is not a question, just a suggestion to visit an area often missed by people travelling along the main coastal road from, say, the Güzelbahçe area west of İzmir or Çeşme and heading for Selçuk or Kuşadası
This road takes you through Seferihisar and if you turn right at the roundabout ypou reach the village of Sığacık in just a few kilometres. The turning nis signposted for Sığacık and Teos,
Sığacık is a fishing village where many of the houses have been built right inside the perimeter walls of a Genoese castle. Terrific views from the ramparts (take care up and down age-worn steps!) and makes for an interesting a stroll through the maze of streets and alleys inside.
Just across the bay, a road leads up the hill and down again to Akkum beach, a lovely stretch of sand , with a number of places for a relaxing meal or cool drink.
For a bit of culture you can head back up the road leading to the beach, turn right at the top and drive through pine woods to Teos, an important Ionian city renowned for its colossal statue to Dionysus – god of wine, the arts and the forces of nature. Little now remains but it’s a peaceful setting of olive trees, wild flowers and grazing cattle.
It's well worth a short diversion.
