Here are a selection of the many attractions near by Apartment Portakal at the Horizon Sky Resort:
Sun drenched beaches: Our favorite beach, Jasmine beach, is a five minute drive or a short hike away. It has multiple restaurants, and many sun loungers and parasols. The beach is all sand, and the sea is warm, sandy and crystal clear. Never very crowded, it is a perfect escape!
There is another beach just down the hill from Horizon Sky (waking distance). It has a sign posted to the right at the approach to what was the steep slope to the jetty. It is close although it can get crowded. It has a large restaurant; very cheap and friendly staff.
Iasos: Iasos is an ancient town is in the village of Kiyikislacik, about 5 km to Horizon Sky. There are dolmus (minibuses) that go by Horizon Sky and can take you to Kiyikislacik in a matter of minutes. This is still a small fishing village. The historical site is impressive. Apart from the well-preserved agora, bouleterion, theatre and The Temple of Artemis Astias (dedicated to the Goddess Artemis) , "Fish Market" - a funerary monument in the form of a Corinth temple, is the most impressive construction dating from the Roman period. It is located inside the courtyard and consisted of four columns on the forth side. "Fish Market" was restored to be used as an open air museum in 1995. The excavations in Iasos started by an Italian team in the head of Prof. Dr. Doro Levi in 1960, and continued by Dr. Fede Berti until today.
Corendon Spa: This is a nearby spa a popular destination for Horizon Sky vacationers, that has a free shuttle that comes and picks you up, all you have to do is call 0543 399 3811 to reserve a shuttle to CORRENDON SPA & HEALTH CENTER.
Gulluk: Gulluk is a sleepy little fishing town and a great destination that is just a 30 min. boat ride away. It has many grocery stores, a really nice bakery where you can taste a variety of Turkish deserts, cafés, bars, restaurants, banks, a family health center and many other amenities. The town promenade stretches along the water and you can find several nice restaurants around here. The town has an authentic Turkish farmers market that sets up every Thursday where you can purchase fresh fruits and vegetables. It is very cheap and a unique experience. The picture above shows the harbor where the Horizon Sky boat docks.
Gulluk also has minibuses called “dolmus” (pronounced dole-mush) that you can take to other nearby towns of Bodrum (a very popular tourist destination 45 minutes away), and Milas (a bigger city just 20 minutes away, with a fantastic farmers market that is a must have experience, setting up every Tuesday).
Bodrum: The castle town of Bodrum can be easily reached by taking the free boat to Gulluk. A 35 min drive from Gulluk in either a taxi or the local dolmus bus will take you to Bodrum, a buzzing thriving, artisan community where tradition goes hand in hand with designer labels, jewelry and leather goods amid local street markets. The town of Bodrum is steeped in culture, history and tradition, offering plenty to be explored. Bodrum’s street markets are a must have experience.
