Turkey - Fethiye, Kas or Foca

Jump to last reply

I am new to this forum so am not quite sure if I am using the write format. We are a young-at-heart couple in our 40's from Canada travelling to Turkey in August. We will have 12 days, 11 nights total in Turkey and so I have reached out to 3 local tour operators to provide us with an itinerary. In general, they are all proposing we spend 2 nights in Istanbul, fly to Cappadocia for 2-3 night stay followed by 4-5 nights in a coastal area before returning to Istanbul for 1 night. I had asked the agents to propose an area on either Mediterranean or Aegean coast, provided there were good beaches, some historic sites and not completely overrun by tourist crowds on package hotel deals. Also, we will rent a car during the time we are on the coast. I have been provided with 3 options:
1. fly to Antalya and 2 nights there and 2 nights Kas
2. fly to Izmir and stay 4 nights in Foca
3. fly to Izmir, stay overnight in Kusadasi or Sirince for Ephesus day trip, stay 4 nights afterwards in Fethiye

I would appreciate your comments regarding the types of beaches we can hope to find, how crowded this area will be (i.e. any possibility of finding a quiet remote beach if we have car access and are willing to hike a bit), and also the charm of the towns that are proposed in the itinerary.

This is a big trip for us coming from Canada and also we have had to move mountains to be without children on this trip so we would like to make it as perfect as possible. Thanks to all in advance.
