The hotel is in a great spot at the top of the town, with views across the mosque minarets to the greek islands and the Turquise coast itself. All rooms are air conditioned and en suite, and the pool is also open during the summer - the perfect end to a great day!

The most popular dish in Turkey are kebabs, dishes of plain or marinated meat either stewed or grilled. The aubergine and eggplant salad are used in a wide variety of dishes. Kebabs can also be cooked with onions, garlic and tomatoes and served cold as "imam bayildi". Stuffed mussels and shrimp stew are popular as well.
Turkish sweets are famous throughout the world and many of these have milk as the basic ingredient. The best-known are "baklava", "kadayif" pastries and turkish delights. If you like alcohol you can try "Raki" made of anise, it is called the "lions drink" because you must be strong as a lion to drink it!

While no previous experience of sea kayaking is necessary, we would recommend that you don't book a week of kayaking unless you are sure it's for you. Just an afternoon in any sort of kayak should let you know if the paddling stroke comes naturally. Those who pick-up most sports reasonably quickly should have no problem.
You should expect to paddle between 4 and 6 hours a day, and of course we will allow plenty of time for beaching the craft to enjoy a swim, a leg stretch or a lunch stop.

Yes, most nationalities can just get their visa when they arrive. British pay £10 in cash, Irish €15 in cash, US citizens pay US$20 in cash. Australians and Canadians pay €45. The exchange booths you will see on arrival make it clear how much you need to pay. If in any doubt about whether you can get on arrival, please check with your nearest embassy.

Turkey Specific Questions
Ramadan is a time when followers of Islam do not eat or drink between sunrise and sunset. This can sometimes affect the opening hours of certain tourist sites. However we will ensure that that the itinerary is affected as little as possible if you travel during this period. Food and drink is available to tourists during the day.

Please visit the Exodus Travel Guide to Turkey where you can find out what plugs they use, as well as more detailed Country information in the menu on the left of the page.
I normally take just Sterling cash, with a debit or credit card to use in ATMs as a back up. As long as you excercise the same degree of common sense you would at home, you won't have any problems. Make sure you advise your bank before leaving home that you will be there, to avoid any problems. You will be changing into the local currency, the Turkish lira, and spending that. Almost all towns have money changing and ATM facilities.
