Loryma Bay

The bay of Loryma, also known as Bozukkale, is located near the southern tip of the Bozburun Peninsula which extends about 34 km southwest of Marmaris. Its distance from the island and the city of Rhodes is only 22 km as the crow flies and in clear weather, the houses and harbour facilities of the city of Rhodes can be discerned in the distance even with the naked eye.

Iotape

It is difficult to suppress an ironic smile when, in answer to the question of the biggest tourist attractions near Alanya, you hear "Pamukkale and Cappadocia". While these two places are undeniably attractive, they are located hundreds of kilometres away from Alanya. Meanwhile, near the famous holiday resorts on the Mediterranean coast, there are many interesting places with a long history. Probably almost everyone has heard of Aspendos, some - about Selge or Perge, but who has ever heard of Iotape?
