Visit the ancient city of Kaunos

For an insight into the resort’s rich history, take a trip to the archaeological site of Kaunos’ ancient city. Stroll around the large amount of remains, which date back to the 9th century BC, where the city was once an important trading port for Lycia. The site has an impressively preserved theatre and Roman baths that can be admired in the tranquil setting.

The site is quieter than most other ancient sites in Turkey, which is advantageous as it means that the area is untouched and wildlife such as tortoises, birds, goats and cats are able to wander freely among the ruins. Grab a bite to eat in the surrounding cafés and remember to bring your camera to capture the historical scenery.
