The discovery of Kabak Cove was in 1987. The discoveries increased as the coves such as Oludeniz and Butterfly Valley were discovered and known. This is a place that emerged during the discovery period.
Those who do not like nature-related activities should definitely not prefer this place for vacation. Because here you are alone with nature. For those who are overwhelmed by city life, rush, crowds, noise and noise pollution and who want to be away from stress, it is definitely one of the places to be preferred.
Kabak Bay Beach Properties
The bay is located at the point where a deep valley meets the sea. The canyon-shaped valley, which is surrounded by dense slopes on 3 sides, ends with the Beach, which is approximately 200 meters wide. This bay, which has a rare geological structure with these slopes and beach, which is approximately 800 meters long, includes the Waterfalls and Ponds formed by Aladere. These waterfalls and ponds complete the unique view, like the last touch-up of the canyon.
Kabak Bay Beach
A small beach about 200 meters long. There is no site because there is a protected area. Admission is free. There is also a place where you can take a shower when you leave the sea and it’s free.As there is no facility, you cannot meet your beach needs such as sun beds and umbrellas. You can solve this problem by getting a mat or mat beforehand. You can also generate an idea for an umbrella.
As for the characteristics of the sea, it cannot be said that it is very clear when it is crowded (July and August). When the sea is usually choppy, it is crowded and blurry, so it is not attractive at all. You may regret if you prefer in the season.
Since the water level deepens at a time, it can be dangerous for families with children who do not know how to swim well.
Kabak Bay Camping and Accommodation
Since it is a natural protected area, accommodation services cannot be said to be highly developed. Accommodation consists of 5-6 pensions, bungalows and 4-5 camping facilities.
You can choose to stay in Faralya Village. The situation in the village is not much different, but here we can say that the hostels are superior to the level in the bay.
One – Two Small Tips;
* For those who plan to stay more than 2 days, we recommend that you choose the pensions on the beach. Going out between Faralya and Kabak Bay can be very tiring both financially and physically.
* Prices may be quite high if you do not make a reservation in advance. Definitely don’t go in July – August or if you are going during these months, book early.
