The Turkish Riviera: A Geology Lesson
|The Mediterranean Coastline|
But I could be wrong. Be honest: you don’t really care, do you? You came here for the pretty pictures. I have lots of rock pictures, so if you happen to be a geologist, I hope you’ll bring clarity to this subject.

|Alanya from the sea|
Don’t miss the old city and harbor of Alanya. It’s worth the drive. One of the best ways to see and appreciate the beauty of Alanya is to take one of the sightseeing cruises. They don’t cost very much, and—at least on our boat—the guide tells stories.

The best way to experience the Turkish Riviera is by renting a car. If you don’t, you’ll be stuck in your all-inclusive hotel, stuffing your belly and drinking yourself into a coma. Rent that car and head to the Taurus Mountains. The road gets more and more dangerous the higher you go. No guardrails. Lots of 100-metre drops. Great fun.
