Thanks Cruiscontroller for leaving a message for me.  I haven''t visited the site for a while, but now that we''ve actually booked a flight and know I''m back.  After much surfing, we have decided to stay the first 4 days in Akyaka before motoring to Kalkan for the last 10 days - couldn''t wrench ourselves away from Kalkan for longer.  Quite a few of you suggested Gocek.  We stayed in Gocek once; we''d booked for 4 nights I think, but found it so very quiet we left after 2 nights.  The town was absolutely deserted in the evenings.  We did not strike up a conversation with any other holidaymakers, unlike Kalkan, where you meet and chat to people all the time. Maybe it was too early in the season. I''m having problems finding a hotel in Akyaka, can anybody help?

Hi Magi,

Contact Mepar tours- www.mepartours.com- they are based in Akyaka and Erhan & Zeynep speak good English and have been working in the area for years- they can give you some up to date accommodation info. I hope that helps

Hi all,

Can anyone suggest a Kalkan alternative for a honeymoon? We are getting married in Kalkan and really like the look of Cirali but it might be impractical as our return flight is from Dalaman  :(  Somewhere quiet, and relaxed with good snorkelling would be ideal.

Any help appreciated  :)

Hi Mangman - cirali is a wonderful choice for a honeymoon - very relaxed unspoilt and undeveloped.  I can recommend the Hotel Canada - run by Carrie and Saban http://www.canadahotel.net/en/index.htm - not sure about the snorkelling - but bound to be available there - you could ask Carrie (a canadian).  I did the drive from kalkan to there in just under 2 hours - so it will make a long transfer but do-able I would say!!

Congratulations by the way!

There was an interesting article on Turkey by Amanda Platel in the Daily Mail Yesterday. In it she mentions a resort called Assos. I was wondering if anyone else had visited this part of Turkey and if so what they thought of it.
