Breakfast is a big deal in Turkey. Arguably its the most important meal of the day, and Turkish people turn it into a real family affair, especially at weekends.

Berkay works nights in summer so he sleeps most of the day and often wakes up mid-afternoon and goes for a stroll around Calis – he likes to send me lots of photos to make me jealous, which they certainly do! The clear sky, the blue sea and the beautiful long promenade full of shops, bars and restaurants […]

There is something so relaxing about sitting on a beach and watching a sunset, and there is no better place to witness the sun going down than on Calis Beach. During the summer months the sun goes down to the left side of the beach, just behind the mountains in the distance, but it still […]
