KABAK, the last undiscovered stretch of Turkey’s Mediterranean coastline
Updated: Mar 16, 2019
Kabak is perhaps the only undiscovered stretch of Turkey’s Mediterranean coastline that is still wonderfully underdeveloped – a tiny patch of idyllic natural hilly forested goodness that rolls down to the glistening, turquoise sea beneath one huge blue, unpolluted sky.
A tiny cove, surrounded only by gorgeous hikes, fresh waterfalls, stunning views and a few wooden chalets, this is the place where the road ends, indeed perhaps where the very world ends.
"Six kilometres south of Faralya – and worlds away from everywhere else – Kabak calls to camping and hiking enthusiasts, yoga devotees and all fans of untapped beauty. Once this region's best-kept secret and a haven for Turkish alternative lifestylers, the cat (not to mention the downward dog) is starting to come out of the bag: the pine-tree-flanked valley above the beach now counts a dozen camps. Nonetheless, Kabak remains one of the Fethiye area's most tranquil spots and anyone craving a slice of back-to-nature bliss will adore a stay here. Whether you walk or take a high-suspension vehicle down the steep track to Kabak Valley (Gemile Beach), you'll be rewarded with a spectacular beach flanked by two long cliffs". - LONELY PLANET
