Day 1, Wednesday: Arrival day …once you have settled into the villa you can enjoy the evening sitting by the pool watching the sun go down over the sea, before meeting up for a drink with the other guests and going over the itinerary for the week ahead. (Guests may arrive at the Villa from 4pm onwards).

Day 2, Thursday: After breakfast together this is a day for you to relax and unwind whilst enjoying all that the Villa has to offer. Dipping in the private pool overlooking the turquoise sea or swimming from one of the nearby beach platforms and lunch at one of the local hotels/restaurants with amazing sea views. In the evening we will all meet up for cocktails at the ‘Secret Garden’ in Kas before eating out together at one of the many charming restaurants.

Day 3, Friday: Market day in Kas provides you with a great opportunity to seek out some traditional produce and bargains at this large and interesting market. In the afternoon we will meet up in Kas for our first group swim 1.5km along the coast past the Amphitheatre. The evening is yours to spend further soaking up the culture; exploring Kas (shops open till midnight) including it’s Amphitheatre or just taking it easy having a beer or sipping freshly made cold lemonade/pomegranate at one of the many local cafes.

Day 4, Saturday: We take a sea taxi to the beautiful secluded beach of Limanagzi before swimming 2km along the Lycean coast to Big Pebble beach. Whilst swimming, you can look up to see the ancient Lycian tombs embedded in the cliff face above you. Once at Big Pebble beach you will have plenty of time to relax and enjoy a delicious leisurely lunch at a traditional Turkish beach restaurant before swimming back to Limanagzi Bay…perhaps for a cocktail on the beach!

Day 5, Sunday: We head off to the harbour, where we board our own skippered Gullet. The first swim of the day follows the Lycian Way, swimming 2km beneath the dramatic cliffs of Uluburun to Inonu Bay. Once there you will be able to rest and sunbathe on the boat before enjoying the most delicious freshly prepared lunch on board. The afternoon is spent swimming 2km from Inona Bay to Aperlai, where you can have a leisurely swim over the ruins deposited on the seabed by numerous earthquakes.

Day 6, Monday: We meet at the harbour once again where we board the Turkish Gullet and sail to Uluburun, before swimming to Upakdere Bay 2/3km. After the delicious lunch, the afternoon is spent doing 2.5km island hopping within the Canyon archipelago of 7 islands, situated just off the Lycean coast.

Day 7, Tuesday: A final day to relax by the pool or swim again from one of the nearby beach platforms and do what ever else takes your fancy….perhaps experiencing a traditional Turkish Hamman, eating at one of the many restaurants overlooking the sea or seeking out great gifts to take home.
