Visiting a pirate’s nest near Fethiye: Kalabantia
The Lycian coast in Turkey is a hot destination for a wide variety of people. You’ll find small-scale back-to-nature places like Kabak, charming villages such as Kalkan or Kaş, long beaches when going to Patara or Iztuzu beach, beautiful islands like Saint-Nicholas Island or Kekova, and fully grown tourist-resorts Ölüdeniz and Fethiye, only to name a few. And not to mention the many ancient sites, including the Unesco World Heritage sites of Letoon and Xanthos. But things weren’t always all kittens and rainbows. In fact, in the early days, pirates ruled the Lycian coast. The numerous paradise coves along the coastline were perfect hiding places for sea robbers and freebooters. One of those hideouts was Kalabantia, situated at approximately 3,5km south of Kabak. And of course, we had to go and check it out!
