Where to stay in Turkey…

Narrowing it down, day by day…

Antalya/Alanya
– Too crowded. Not considering.
+ Cheap flights.

Icmeler
+ Good beach, but packed.

Kalkan
+ Kaputas beach with clear waters (3 km or 10 minutes). Small, but not too crowded.

Kas
+ Close to Patara beach (which is wavy)
+ Kaputas (small) beach with clear waters (7 km)

Marmaris
– Thomas already went there; thinks it’s OK.
+ Close to Rhodes!
+ Close to Turkish town Fethiye, Greek village Kayaköy

Ölüdeniz
+ A friend recommends this.
+ Over 50 % of reviews/tips I’ve read recommend this over other places in Turkey.
– Same friend says two weeks here might be boring.
+/- 1 hour to Marmaris.
+ #1 beach destination in Europe!!
Touristy
+/- Most famous + popular

Patara
+ One if Turkey’s finest beaches.
+/- Laid back village

Side
+ Two friends recommend this.
– Read some bad posts, stating the place is dirty.
+ 2nd longest beach in Turkey, calm waters

I just want an awesome villa close to an idyllic clear beach close to a somewhat-lively-not-too-touristy Turkish town/village. 🙂

Note to self
Visit Butterfly Valley and Turtle beach by boat.
