The Lycian Way technically takes the more direct route, and this is the scenic coastal alternative. Stunning swimming and walking through scented pine woods. Mind the tortoises they are easily trod on.

We did this trail from Kabak to Faralya. Going in this direction, the trail was initially mostly downhill with occasional inclines, until the last 1 - 1.5 hours at which point it became a moderately steep climb. The sun was behind us, which was a nice bonus. There are stunning views of the sea and mountains with opportunities for a quick dip or leisurely swim en route. Hiking surrounded by the scent of pine and sea breeze and the sound of waves is incredible! The trail is about 75% partially shady. The trail is in good condition and well marked with colored markers on rocks, with the exception of 2 or 3 spots where we had to look around a bit for the markers. The trail goes through a few camp sites and lodging, with opportunities to purchase snacks or drinks in some of them.
