Enjoy your Selimiye holidays in this unspoilt Turkish fishing village where small, fisherman’s cottages can still be found on the harbour with their white-washed walls and lots of potted plants in discarded, olive oil containers, typically Mediterranean. The village is cradled by two small bays that lead into a larger bay and peninsular with majestic mountains dropping into the sea.
Walking along the harbour you will encounter small restaurants and bars and the occasional shop selling curiosities and the village offers a good selection of restaurants. The delightful, slow pace of life and relaxed atmosphere is ideal for those looking to get away from it all and is perfect for couples and families wishing to experience an authentic taste of Turkish life. You can still see half a dozen or so cottage industry Gulet shipyards building craft as they did hundreds of years ago. Enjoy a day cruise on holidays to Selimiye, sailing along the coast and swim or dive in the clear turquoise waters, or, if you prefer, the surrounding countryside is ideal for walkers and hikers especially in the cooler months.
The harbour is the perfect setting for an evening stroll and watching the boats gently caressing the moon lit sea before deciding on your restaurant choice for the evening. Other places of interest include the ruins of a medieval castle located just behind the village and a lovely waterfall higher up in the hills. This charming, sleepy village is an idyllic retreat offering clear waters, charming restaurants, good food and Turkish hospitality at its best. Selimye holidays are highly recommended for holidaymakers preferring less commercial resorts.
