In July and August the village is buzzing with many Turks taking up
residence and the beaches are busier. Out of the high season months
the village is quieter.
The village has numerous food shops and a village bakery which bakes
not only delicious bread but also sizzling pide" bread topped with
meat and cheese. A permanent fruit and vegetable market ensures you
have the best choice of locally grown fruit. There is an excellent
choice of restaurants ranging from specialist kebab makers and
family run restaurants to the slightly more sophisticated riverside
restaurants where fresh water trout is offered alongside a selection
of delicious bream, bass and mullet.
The wide sandy beach with its constant cooling breeze and within
walking distance of all our accommodation is ideal for children as
it is shallow for some way out.
The number of inhabitants in the winter is approximatly 1500 and in
the summer it almost doubles. Its delightful position at the end of
the Gökova gulf, bordered in the north by the almost 1000m high
Sakartepe, in the south by the wetlands of the Gökova plain
("heaven's plain") with it's multitude of species, particularly
water birds, takes the visitor into it's spell.
