NEARBY TOURS WITH LOW FARE
In the heart of Lycia Patara is best known for its beach, eighteen kilometers of soft white sand, backed by majestic dunes and in recent years the winner of a "best beach in the world" survey in the Sunday Times.
Evidence of its former glories as the principal port for Lycia and an important Roman town can be seen at the extensive site, still not fully excavated.
Here too stood the Hellenistic oracle of Apollo , thought to rival that at Delphi and a further claim of Patara's fame is as the birthplace of the fourth century St. Nicolas , the original Santa Claus.
Patara beach should not be missed with its gorgeous landscape and great swimming. It is a national park and home to many birds, also the breeding ground of the endangered Loggerhead turtle.
The beach is an 18 kilometer-long strip of sand bordered on its ends by mountains and along its length by sand dunes and the large marshy area which once was the celebrated port of Patara.

The bars up on the terraces provide stunning views of the bay as the sun goes down (and of the lasers after dark).

Sarigerme is closely situated to Dalaman International Airport It is the site of the ancient city of Physilis. This city is now buried under the shifting sands. Sarigerme is the name given to the coast near the village of Osmaniye, 850 metres inland from the shore. The name Sarigerme is linked to the Sarıçay stream that divides Osmaniye and the coast. The Sarıcay was once used as the transportation route for timber that was brought from the forest to the sea. To prevent the timber from escaping into the sea the stream’s outlet into the ocean was closed during times of timber transportation. Thus the name ‘Germe’,which means tightening or fencing.
Sarigerme, with its long coastline, fine sands and backdrop of pine trees, shallow sea and the island of Babaada not too far in the distance, is truly a perfect holiday haven.
Services such as food and drink outlets , showers , toilets , beach chairs, umbrellas and dressing cabins , as well as a dinghy service across the water to Osmaniye, are all available. There is a small charge at the entrance, which goes towards the upkeep and services for the beach .The island of Babaada, situated right off the coast, is the place where boats and yachts playing between Marmaris and Gocek moor regularly. If you are confident, it is possible to swim to the island and later climb to the top and have a bird’s eye view of the beautiful scenery surrounding you
