The endless beaches offer a gorgeous view of the beautiful Mediterranean Sea and are perfect for both people who are looking for sea adventures or quiet relax. There are beaches crowded with tourists that offer all popular sea attractions as well as wonderful isolate bays where you can completely relax and immerse yourself in heaven. Adventurous people can try deep sea fishing, diving, windsurfing, sailing, snorkelling or boating, while others can enjoy quiet walks on the sandy beaches by the sea. A nice day in the open will make you hungry, so you can choose one of the nice and cosy restaurants and bars, and try the local cuisine – halloumi cheese, salads, seafood, charcoal-grilled lamb, bulgur, lokum, wines, etc.
