Then you’ll go to the waterfalls on the mountain with small but wonderfully beautiful rapids, clear, clean & fresh water where you can not only listen to the music of the running water, enjoy the scenery, but also a swim and jump from a low altitude in the churning waters of the waterfall pools. Next, you are going into a very popular tourist destination; the beach of the Aegean Sea, Kiz Kumu,
which means “Maiden Sands” when translated. Get accustomed to the islands surrounding the bay, on one of them you will see the castle. According to one version of the legend in the village of Orhan lived a beautiful girl and a handsome young boy, they love each other, but their families were enemies, as families Montagues and Capulets in Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet. The girl’s father was strongly opposed to the choice of his daughter and wanted to end her feelings. He imprisoned his daughter in a castle in the hope that her daughter will not see the boy, and forget it. The young man spent his days and nights at the walls of the fortress, to catch a glimpse of her or hear her voice, but without success, and then, unable to bear the separation from his beloved, he boarded a ship and sailed to the open sea. She saw him from the window of the fortress, took a moment and ran away. She ran across the sea hoping to catch up with her loved one, sand rained down in front of them, and lining their path into the sea… And what ended the story and why women tend to go deep into the sea on this spit you will learn from your guide 🙂
On the sand, among large concentrations of tourists, you will spend about 20-30 minutes, and swim in the open Aegean Sea, go to a secluded, charming wild beach of the Gulf of Hisaronu. And then, on another route, crossing the bed of a mountain river, we’ll go back to Marmaris.
