Kabak

updated listing Lissiya Hotel
Kabak consists of two physically seperate sections: the settlement proper, a small agglomeration of two-story buildings along the road, clinging on a mountainside way above the coastline (though with a view of beautiful Mediterranean), and the cluster of guesthouses below, between the coast and the canyon known as ''Kabak Koyu'', which, with its pine groves, waterfalls, and coastline, is quite similar to much more famous Butterfly Valley of [[Faralya]]; however physical access to Kabak Koyu is a little easier than Butterfly Valley, although the relative remoteness of Kabak offsets that.
The state of development in Kabak is in major flux. There are still backpacker/family oriented places that are truly interested in keeping Kabak beautiful and are invested for the long-term (Full Moon, Reflections, Sultan, Kabak Valley Camping, Turan Hill Lounge, and a few more), but they are being pushed out of the way by developers who just want to make a buck quickly (Lonely Planet authors got free accomodation/food here in exchange for a certain place being highlighted) and have no interest in the long-term outcome of Kabak besides profit. Someone who remembered it from 2005 would find it different now. For example, to build a resort on the property closest to the beach, they cut down the forest next to the beach. They also want to pave the road to the beach so package tourists can come. If you want to stay at a place that is helping Kabak stay beautiful, choose wisely.

Both the upper village and the coastal part have a number of '''guesthouses''', some of which consist of wooden bungalows. Most also offer '''campgrounds''' in their yards, although you can because it is not allowed to camp wild camp for free on at the beach or in the isolated parts of the canyonforest. Overall, Full Moon is the closest to the dolmus stop, but far from the beach. The rest are closer to the beach, but it's a walk back up to the dolmus stand. Something to consider if you have a heavy pack and you either want to chill in your camping/bungalow area or hang out more on the beach. Follow the '''red and white painted rocks''' for the trail all the way to the beach, through which you will pass several locations with bungalows and camping spaces. There are plenty more to find, so contribute if you stay at any of them!
The more local, backpacker, and family oriented places are Full Moon, Reflections, Sultan, and Kabak Valley Camp. See the 'Understand' section more info about the tourism development in the Kabak Valley.

However, that well manicured lawn meant cutting down the beautiful pine forest that used to be on the beach.</sleep>
