TRAVEL TIP...

If you don't speak Turkish, just smile and you'll always find people eager to try to understand you.

SECRET ONLY A LOCAL WOULD KNOW...

The best crab fish ever is at Bayram in Kekova. Also, it takes only five minutes by speed boat to visit Castelorrizo, a little Greek island right by the Turkish coast.
