TURKEY: Butterfly and Kabak Valley

Butterfly Valley is a tranquil valley in South Turkey at the Mediterranean Sea, where mainly individual tourists spend their holidays in small wooden huts or tents. It is a eco friendly space with solar energy, vegetarian food and yoga lessons, only reachabl by boat or a steep climb down the mountains. But several times an invasions of tour boats filled with package tourists invade the beach for an hour or so, creating a stark contrast to its otherwise beatiful tranquillity.

 Kabak Valley is further down the coast another dreamy bay with mainly small places catering to eco-tourism. Both valleys are along the Lycian Way, a long-distance footpath in Turkey around part of the coast of ancient Lycia. It is approximately 540 km long and stretches from Ölüdeniz, near Fethiye, to Geyikbayırı, about 20 kilometers from Antalya.
