The small Butterfly Valley service boat leaves from Belcekiz beach alongside the larger day trip boats. This is your opportunity to get away from the hordes of tourists occupying the main beach and get back to nature. On arrival at Butterfly Valley beach where there are no hotels, only a small backpacker?s camping site, it?s not hard to imagine yourself in Alex Garland?s novel ?The Beach?. The contrast between this and the main beach couldn?t be greater. Mountains rise up steeply on both sides and converge at a waterfall where butterflies congregate in great numbers at certain times of the year. The walk to the waterfall is 1km inland but it?s a twisting rocky path that needs to be taken slowly with care.

Departure times are 11am, 2pm and 6pm with return trips at 1pm and 5pm. It costs 10YTL for a return trip.

Address: Butterfly Valley
Directions: By boat from Belcekiz beach
