What people are saying about Muğla Province

I would love to recommended this holiday experience - Was much more relaxing and fun than I thought it would be. I love animals, especially horses and these were very friendly approachable with a great attitude...I could put trust in my horse 100% so I wasn't too apprehensive and able to enjoy the stunning mountain ocean views.

Absolutely beautiful.

The island was amazing and a beautiful site. The stop offs were also amazing. Enjoyed sunbathing at the top of the boat. Lunch was okay, not a BBQ but tasted nice. Worth the money!

this is a very well worth day trip, with breathtaking views.
