Mediterranean Coast of Turkey

I took a bus from Bodrum down to a small town on the Mediterranean coast of Turkey called Kas (pronounced like "cash"). We rented a car and drove to Patara Beach, where sea turtles often go to lay their eggs. The beach is 18 km long and the sand was so soft and warm that you didn't even need to lie on a towel! We swam and bodysurfed in the waves and suntanned and relaxed in the sand.

The next place we visited was Saklikent Gorge. Saklikent is Turkish for Hidden City. We hiked deep into the canyon and the water was waist-deep at parts! We had to climb up waterfalls on the way in, but we got to slide down them like waterslides on the way out!

At the end of the day, we relaxed near the hammocks by the river and ate traditional turkish cuisine. Sitting near the water cooled us off after a long, hot day!
