Olympos Beach

After five days in Istanbul, a brief flight and three separate buses, our trip to Turkey took a turn towards tranquility as Ashley and I found ourselves in the town of Olympos. What was once an ancient Lycian city and is now a backpacker’s paradise, it boasts a beautiful beach and stunning views of the Mediterranean.

One of the best ways to take in the beauty of these surroundings is to climb a hill of ancient ruins that  rewards the climber with quite the panoramic view.
