This tour operates on a Wednesday.

Moonlight Dinner Cruise

Head out of Kumlubuk Bay and off into the sunset with a glass of champagne in hand as you admire the sun setting over the Aegean Sea. Once it's dark you'll stop at the idyllic Kadirga Bay for a moonlit swim and candlelit dinner.

About the location
In Kumlubuk it’s all eyes on the bay. Holding the title of having one of the largest sweeps of beach in this part of Turkey, it’s a golden-sands-meet-turquoise-waters kind of affair. Thanks to its size, beach days never seem to feel too crowded. Away from the beach, surrounding hills are a haven for hiking or slow afternoon strolls.

The dining scene deserves quite a lot of recognition, too. Fish is big here and Kumlubuk’s handful of charming restaurants serves up some of the freshest and best on the Turquoise Coast.

Overlooking this stunning bay are the ancient ruins of Amos. Dating back to the fifth century, the ancient city’s walls are still in remarkably good condition. Other fascinating sites include a Greek theatre and small temple dedicated to the god Apollo Samnaios (Apollo of the hill). In fact, its position perched high on a hill means the views out to sea are just one of the reasons to visit.

Kumlubuk allows you to combine its small town charm with lively Marmaris, located just 25 kilometres south-west. This exciting coastal town is home to restaurant-lined promenades, pretty coves, watersports opportunities and more of Turkey’s renowned ancient sites – don’t miss Marmaris Castle.
Transfer time
The hotel is a 2 hour 5 minute transfer from Dalaman Airport.
