Gelemiş (also known as Patara)

This traditional Turkish village is best known to visitors and locals alike, rather confusingly, as Patara, which is more properly the name of the Greek-Roman ancient site and famous beach which lie just beyond it.

Whatever you call it, rustic Gelemiş makes a superb base from which to enjoy Turkey’s best and longest beach, accessible from the village through the ancient site using a smart “beach card”, which costs £1.65 for 10 entries.

The atmospheric, dune-engulfed ruins of ancient Patara (daily April-Oct 8am-7pm; Nov-March 8am-5pm; £3.30) are still under excavation and you could easily spend an entire day here, wandering beneath triumphal arches and among curiously shaped Lycian tombs, or admiring the plentiful bird life from the semi-circular tiers of stone seating in the 2,000-year-old theatre.

The village centre is home to a handful of more than adequate low-key restaurants, though visitors generally eat wholesome home-cooked food at their hotel or pension or, for something more sophisticated, drive to upmarket Kalkan, 20 minutes away.

Around Gelemiş

The waymarked Lycian Way long-distance trail (cultureroutesinturkey.com), pioneered by the British expat Kate Clow, passes through Gelemiş. It enables even average walkers to make a loop to the fascinating Roman aqueduct at Delikkemer or on to Kalkan; keener walkers can arrange longer hikes along the trail – though temperatures are fierce from mid-June to mid-September.
