Our first emotion on arrival in Cavus was one of panic, and "where can we move on to?". The bay is a quite striking horseshoe shape, surrounded by hills, but the beach is of grey gravel and pebbles, and the sea shelves quite steeply. For unspoilt, read "undeveloped", and quite tatty. Most of the visitors are Turkish. A few enterprising hoteliers along the shallow river that meets the sea at one end of the bay have built platforms into the water to allow a very unusual and pretty setting for dinner. The beach is about 15 minutes walk, or a quick lift by the very accommodating owner along the dirt track directly opposite the hotel. However, the relaxing ambience of the hotel quickly grows on you. The slightly elevated position gives a constant cooling breeze. The 11 rooms available all face the sea, and are clean and simple. The 10m pool area would be a bit cramped if all the rooms were occupied, but we were very lucky to have the place to ourselves most of the time. We ate out on a few occasions, but the hotel food, cooked to order and guest's choice is as good as anywhere else we found. Yuksel and his two staff could not have been more attentive or helpful. Marmaris, or Bodrum, or even Kalkan this is not. However, if you are looking for a really relaxing holiday in a rural part of Turkey, you could do a lot worse. It's surprising how quickly we were able to chill out when there was nothing to do, and nowhere to dash off to. We spent 2 weeks in June (2012) and, despite our initial panic, this was a most enjoyable time.
