Gelemis Things to Do
Ruins of ancient town of Patara
Ruins in Patara are great to visit after a day on the beach.
They present themselves magnificent just before the sunset.
Every year more and more ruins is being excavated and put together. So far there is no rebuilding being done, so everything is original.
There is no crowds, no silly tour groups, sometimes you can have an entire site to yourself.
Beach in Patara (Gelemis)
Patara has one of the best beaches in Turkey.
Golden sand, great water, umbrellas and chairs for rent as well as reasonable prices place to grab a bite.
You have to pay to get to the beach, because it is in national park where the ruins of the ancient city of Patara are, but if you are staying in Patara for longer and you are going to the beach many times, you can keep your ticket and you want be asked to pay again.
If you really agains paying a small fee, you can hike to the beach from the village :-)

2 places in the village centre: Great Gozleme
There are 2 places that make Gozleme (traditional turkish pancakes/crepes). One is run by young woman and the other by older woman. We tried and liked both of them.
My favorite is Gozleme with sugar and lemon.
My husband's favorite is Gozleme with Nutella and banana.
