THE GULF OF HISARONU
The Gulf of Hisaronu is more open in feel and often windier with dramatic cliffs & rock formations. The bustling town of Dacta & charming unspoilt villages such as Bozburun & Selimiye (where you might come across the man with the golden teeth) are all top spots to visit. The partially resorted ancient city of Knidos is fascinating, as is the lost city of Phoenix.
The Gulf of Hisaronu is an extremely popular tourist resort village located in the Fethiye district of Turkey, on the southwest of Marmaris. Compared to the other gulf’s in the area, Hisaronu Gulf is actually on the larger side and offers a little of something for everyone to enjoy with incredible views, jaw-dropping beaches, perfect shorelines, crystal clear water and blue sunny skies.
Hisaronu is often chosen by travellers looking for a calm, quiet holiday, with beautiful beaches and wonderful seas, but also attracts windsurfers and boating enthusiasts, as the weather can become rather windy during parts of the season.
The Ancient City of Bybassos – nearby to Hisaronu – is a popular destination for many tourists travelling to Hisaronu. Within Bybassos you can find an old temple called “Hemithea” on the Mount Eren, the remnants belong to the city of Kastabos.
