Sarigerme holidays put the spotlight on a sandy beach. But you can head into the centre to dig into Turkish treats. Plus, historical hotspot Kaunos is well within reach.
You’ll find Sarigerme on Turkey’s south-western coast, and its laidback village vibes match its small size. Head into the centre and you’ll find a mixture of bars and restaurants – just the ticket for trying out regional grub, like kebabs cooked in traditional clay pots. The locals flock here, too, so you’ll know you’re getting the real deal.
A picture-perfect beach fringes Sarigerme. Rolling out for a couple of dozen kilomeres, it’s carpeted with sunbed-speckled white sand and is popular with kiteboarders thanks to the rideable waves. Because this sandy spot is slap bang in the middle of a National Park Conservation Area, you’ll have to cough up a small fee to chill on the beach. But, because it’s protected, it’s kept spick-and-span.
History and pampering
Daytrip-wise, this place is a people-pleaser. Hop in a car for 20 minutes, and you’ll get to history heavyweight Kaunos. This place is stuffed with more ancient sites than you can shake a history book at, including baths, an amphitheatre and fountains. Or, head over to nearby Dalyan for a detoxing dip in the village’s natural mud springs.
