Situated south west of the resort of Antalya and well off the beaten track, Cavus Bay is surrounded by pine forest covered hillsides and agricultural fields where vegetables, fruit, corn and wheat grow in abundance. The bay itself is lined by a few small hotels, cafes, restaurants and little shops and the little old village of Adrasan is about four kilometres inland from the hotel and here you'll find a few shops, a chemist, and mosque and there is also a weekly market.
There are five boat rips included on this tour. The first trip will be on the second night of the holiday when we will take a boat tour of Cavus Bay with a welcome cocktail on board. The four other boat trips will take you to hidden coves and lovely beaches for barbeque lunches and to islands and caves set in towering cliffs for swimming in the beautiful turquoise waters. All boat trips are subject to weather conditions and full serviceability of craft.
Whilst here you may like to join an optional tour (payable locally) to visit some of the splendid archaeological sites of the area. The options are: ancient Arykanda, the millennia old Lycian ruins set over five terraces on a rocky mountainside; Termessos, a national park and Pisidian city perches higher on a rocky promontory; Aspendos, where you'll find one of the best preserved Roman theatres in the world; Perge, with its theatre that combines both Greek and Roman elements; and Olympos, a dramatically overgrown Lycian city in the shadow of the mountain of the same name. An evening visit to see the eternal flames of Chimera is a very interesting experience.
There are many lovely walks in the area, whether you are just looking for a leisurely stroll around the bay or something a bit more challenging. Many narrow tracks and paths wind along the coast, amongst villages and farmland, through woodland, or along the cool, tree-shaded riverside.
There are plenty of typical Turkish markets in the area where you can buy spices, herbs, cottons, silks and much more. These are also social occasions for the local people and are an excellent way to observe social life and village customs. The local town of Kumluca in particular has a bustling market once a week.
