Located on the southern coast of Turkey, midway between Fethiye and Kalkan, Suleyman’s Garden perches just above a wild rocky beach, with spectacular views of the Mediterranean. It is in a very unspoiled area, on what is known as the ‘Lycian Way’, a marked trail, which is wonderful for walking along the dramatic and mountainous coastline. This wonderfully secluded venue provides a fantastic opportunity for total relaxation, immersion in yoga, and with almost guaranteed great weather.
