This is simply the best day excursion on a boat you could ask for ... the day begins at 10.00am downstairs at the Tango Pension.
Stroll to the lakefront where Sahinís boat awaits you and begin your tour. Cruise the waters of Lake Koycegiz to the channels, through the reed causeways and past the magnificent Lycian tombs which were carved into the rock face up to 3000 years ago.
You will have the opportunity of visiting the ruins of Caunos or heading straight to the wonderful sandy expanse of Turtle Beach (Caretta Caretta) where turtles lay their eggs from March to September. Who can resist swimming in the beautiful blue waters of the Mediterranean Sea? Enjoy the excellent lunch on the boat before motoring back to Koycegiz via the world-renowned mud baths and hot springs. Take a dip in the springs and slop dollops of mud all over your body... the waters here are rumoured to aid in the treatment of rheumatological and gynecological ailments as well as decreasing stress and increasing sexual prowess.
Donít mind the smell... just hop right in! Continue on your homeward journey, stopping for a swim in the lake and watch the sunset over the mountains as you dock. An exhausting but thoroughly enjoyable day and an absolute bargain.
