The first stop we recommend for May 19th is undoubtedly the land of beauty, Seferihisar.

Moreover, the local producers' production is very well supported in the district, which meets all the criteria of the Slow City movement. In addition, initiatives such as unique local flavors and extremely clean guesthouses are also at the forefront.
In addition to all of these, the Sığacık neighborhood of Seferihisar, which meets the sea, is perfect for you. This unique place welcomes you with a small town built inside the castle walls. Moreover, Sığacık, which mostly sells seafood in restaurants, cute cafes, and producer markets, is a must-see place for those who come to Seferihisar.
