- Beach / Seaside Resort
- Archaeological Site
I get starry-eyed when I think of Olympos. Greenery, calm seas, a mountain backdrop... At 80km from Antalya, the site is unusual thanks to its human scale. I spent several days in a lovely wood-built bungalow and I highly recommend you opt for these cheap, clean holiday lets. The more courageous amongst you can hire a treehouse for the night.
I loved wandering around the ruins of the ancient city. Plantlife has sprung up through the foundations and it feels a bit like a jungle. But what impressed me most about Olympos was the colour of its blue sea. It's a sea turtle paradise...or indeed any mammal!
During your time in Olympos, I recommend you explore the surrounding hills. At dawn the light is incredible and you'll even see people doing yoga.
Do you fancy a break from it all during your holiday in Turkey? Olympos is the perfect place to recharge your batteries.
