While the main peak of Babadağ rests at 1969 meters (6460 feet), the secondary summits stands at an elevation of 1400 meters (4593 feet) above the sea level, thus proffering some breathtaking views of the valleys and terrains of Oludeniz. The limestone crag is home to dense plantations of Cedrus libani and Acer undulatum, among other species of native flora like cedar and orchids. It remains popular as a rare specimen of a cliff that rises straight from the sea level and reaches a height of 1969 meters. Dotted with an array of beautiful trees and shrubs, Babadağ is a famous hiking spot. Several hiking paths used by herds and shepherds take climbers up its imposing peak. Also, its proximity to the windy sea of the city makes it a wonderful destination for paragliding.

Kayaköy has been deserted since 1923 and is a ghost town with crumbling buildings. It was home to many Greeks who were forced to abandon their homes after the Greco-Turkish War, where Greece lost badly. The empty, roofless houses, churches, cisterns and fountains now ravaged by time and weather, gives it an ancient look, as if it were centuries old. UNESCO adopted Kayaköy as a World Friendship and Peace Village. It is indeed a grim reminder of what wars can do to a nation and its people.
Tlos is a must visit destination while touring this side of Turkey. The ancient city still has the charm one might fathom it did as a thriving civilization. Located at the Xanthos valley, the city was a religious center and also one the oldest Lycian cities known. The city is famous for the tombs along the hillside that jut out of the rocky terrain. Another feature is the ruin of an Ottoman Castle at the top of the hill. The site is located not too far from Saklikent Gorge, which is the largest in the country. Yaka village flourishes next to the ruin of Tlos and the site is absolutely beautiful. It has become the muse of artists and photographers alike.
