Tours to the Province of Mugla a Place Not To Be Missed

Not far from the towns in the Mugla Province, you can swim in crystal clear, tideless, warm seas and underwater divers will especially want to explore the several reefs, caves and majestic rock formations. The waters offer up many multicoloured sponges of all shapes and sizes and a great variety of other aquatic life, including octopus.

Bodrum and its hinterland are particularly attractive for its relaxed ambience, historical architecture and its proximity to a great choice of fantastic beaches, fishing villages and trendy nightclubs. With its picturesque shop-lined streets that also offer many restaurants, discos, sophisticated bars and cafes for all ages and tastes, the county is always lively whatever the season. Its delightful charm remains unspoilt with palm-lined streets and whitewashed, flat-roofed houses dotted across the terraced hillsides.

Bodrum is the ancient Halicarnassus, the birthplace of the famous historian Herodotus, and a place known in antiquity for being the site of one of the Seven Wonders of the World. The Mausoleum, a gigantic tomb erected for King Mausolus in the fourth century BC. Destroyed by successive earthquakes, the stones of the Mausoleum were then used by the Knights of St John to build their castle nearby all of which can be seen on Mugla tours.

A shining destination on Turquoise Coast is Marmaris, a top-rated summer resort for domestic tourists and foreign visitors taking Mugla tours, and the region has developed massively over the years. Boats are also available at the old harbour for tours to the islands and bays that are around its coast.

An ancient castle which is now a museum overlooks the area around the port and gives you a feeling of the old town's character. In the small shopping centre where you will find upmarket boutiques and intimate restaurants and are a nice contrast with the traditional bazaar area, where hundreds of small shops offer the usual Turkish wares including clothing, leather, jewellery and handicrafts. You could choose to take a Mugla Market tour perfect for all the shopaholics wanting to grab a few bargains and some memories to take home of this beautiful country.

Where the Aegean meets the Mediterranean is Datça, located at the far end of the Aegean coast and on the end of a peninsula that stretches out to the west. It is a famous stopping-point for gulets on a "blue cruise" from either Bodrum or Marmaris. Datça is also a perfect place for fishing and diving, and its winds make it very popular with surfers.

An important historical site in this area is Knidos which is famous in antiquity for its great amphitheatres and is also the site of the Temple of Aphrodite, which housed a beautiful statue of the goddess sculpted by Praxiteles who was one of the most celebrated artists of antiquity which you can see on a private Mugla tour.

The popular resort of Fethiye and around 135km southeast of Marmaris has an outstanding marina at the head of a charming bay. A hill that has ruins of a fortress constructed by the Knights of Rhodes overlooks the small port. Above the county are numerous Lycian rock tombs reproducing the facades of ancient buildings that were cut into the cliff face. The Tomb of Amyntas, which dates back to the fourth century BC, is the most remarkable one. The surrounding area has a wealth of beautiful coves and valleys; places not to be missed are Butterfly Valley, home to thousands of butterflies, and Saklıkent which is accessible only by wading through the ice-cold waters coming straight from the mountains.

Ölüdeniz, meaning the Dead Sea, gets its name from the still waters separating the lagoon from the sea itself. The calm turquoise blue waters and rugged mountains make Ölüdeniz one of Turkey's most beautiful regions.

These are just a few beautiful places that are on the Mugla Province, and there are many guided tours in Mugla you are spoilt for choice.
