Our first stop is the village of Denizkoy. Looking out to sea you can see Pigeon Island and the Two Twins Island. All around here you have small fishing farms. The scenery is quite spectacular and the sea is very calm.
We move along the coast to Bademli Village with its small marina. This is a very sheltered spot with some amazing scenery. We watched a heron fishing here before slowly meandering along the windy coast road.
Finally we arrived at Dikili. We are still in Izmir Province and all along this particular stretch of coastline there is an abundance of picturesque holiday villages with their mature palm trees and long sandy beaches. Dikili is just a 120 km from Izmir.
Dikili port attracts tourists on their way to Izmir and Pergamon and local tourists heading for the 40 km of sandy beaches and holiday homes. The town has all the amenities you would expect with some pleasant town squares and parks along with a host of cafe restaurants along the busy seafront.
There is a long sandy beach right off the main promenade.
