No one is in a hurry anywhere, there’s also no racing after tourists of whom there are not too many in the town due to the small number of hotels, and the main source of income of residents is still agriculture and fishing. Yet nowhere else can you feel being in the real Turkey, not as commercialized as other cities of the Turkish Riviera, wander the streets without being molested by desperate sellers, feel almost imperceptible.

At the same time, the surroundings combine freedom, the scenic beauty and charm of Aegean Turkey, with the fame of the tourist mecca that the Turkish Riviera is, and just by staying here, you can see both faces of Turkey. Finike is an ideal starting point for those wishing to see and visit the most - both for seekers of ancient treasures and for enthusiasts of gorgeous coves, and the most picturesque beaches in Turkey. It is worth hiring a car and exploring the area, which will certainly show a completely different side of Turkey, whose beauty can impress. Among the wealth of the remains of ancient cities, which you can encounter with almost every step, the most recommendable are Demre - Myra (the birthplace of St. Nicholas and the beautiful Lycian tombs), Parata with the ancient amphitheatre and one of the most beautiful beaches in Turkey, Kekova, where you can take a cruise, enjoy the so-called "Turkish Atlantis" - a city, which after a powerful earthquake went under water (you can admire it from the deck of a boat or while diving). Other ancient cities available from here are Limyra, Arykanda, Phaselis and Olympos. Mount Chimera in Olympos is interesting, from where eternal flames come out, which are best admired after sunset. But these are not the only attractions of the region. For those who start to feel full with antiquity, we recommend the beautiful port in the town of Kas which is famous for its excellent fish restaurants. From here you can also go to one of he smallest Greek islands, Megisti, inhabited by only about 275 people, which is only 20 minutes by boat from the port in Kas, It is worth going there if only because there are few such opportunities in life, and the taste of retsina compensates for all the hardships of the journey. But for those who prefer to relax on the beach, the region offers two amazing opportunities to be on one of the most beautiful beaches in Turkey. The first is Patara, a sandy beach surrounded by hills, impressive in size, stretching for several kilometres, where there is no hotel - so you will always find a spot here far away from others. The second, one of the most scenically situated beaches of Turkey is the beach Kaputas, over which vertical cliffs rise.
