As you turn off the Dalaman-Marmaris highway, you’ll feel like you’ve taken a sudden step back in time. It’s as if someone forgot to tell the village that it’s the 21st century. Not that that’s a bad thing. In fact, if you want to discover a Side of Turkey that very few people know about, then you’ve struck gold. Here sun-drenched days are best spent exploring the countryside, chatting to the locals or simply savouring the peace and quiet. As far as amenities go, Kizilyaka has a few family-run restaurants offering locally-grown, homemade food. There’s also a small shop and a petrol station. For more choice, the busy fishing town of Akyaka is a 15-minute drive away. As well as a great beach, it’s got plenty of shops, restaurants and sights – a visit to the old harbour is a must. And rather than playing host to crowds of foreign visitors, this place is where the Turks go on holiday. So praise doesn’t come much higher than that. And if you don’t mind travelling a bit further, the ruins of Ephesus, the largest ancient city outside of Greece, are about four hours away.
