Located just 100 meters from the harbour and only a short stroll away from the resort’s private white sand beach, guests can easily access the vibrant town’s attractions, bars, and restaurants.
The resort is conveniently positioned between the town’s two marinas, enveloped in a lush tropical setting with palm trees and foliage at the foot of pine-covered hills. Mount Babadağ, Turkey’s premier paragliding destination, is only a 40-minute drive south, while the remarkable Lycian rock tombs of Dalyan are a mere 40 minutes to the northeast.
