Selimiye is another village, just a few on from Hisaronu Koyu
on the Bozburun Peninsula. It’s a small, peaceful fishing village
with a handful of quay-side restaurants and a slow pace of life.
Stop here and enjoy a delicious meal overlooking
the crystal clear blue waters,
or explore the historical ruins
of three castles from the ancient city of Hydas.

There’s also an observation tower 100 metres from the shore,
here you’ll get a stunning view of the Peninsula.
