Alaçatı – Demircili: 48 kilometers
Demircili Village is a wonderful village rich in fresh air, 15 kms away from Urla where you can reach after passing the bendy roads covered with pine trees. It is located on the hill facing the blue sea and green fields.
Still quite virgin and less-known in comparison with the neighbouring villages, Demircili has great bays and a Nature Sports Club serving organic food and providing fantastic opportunities to practice extreme sports.
Yörük Aile Evi, located on the road to Demircili Village 200 metres from Altınköy detour, offers a delicious breakfast prepared with natural and local ingredients. This cozy place that is run by a family serves milk, cheese and yoghurt from their goats, honey, clotted cream, jams, olives and gözleme (a typical flatbread filled and baked with cheese, potato, eggplant or other ingredients) at the breakfast accompanied with classical music. Their ‘crispy tahini gözleme’ is especially fantastic. After you spend time in Yörük Aile Evi, you can continue towards Demircili Village until you see Titus & Feronia signs.
Titus & Feronia Motor and Nature Sports Club (TIMODOK), set on a 55.00 square meters field, offers opportunities for all types of nature sports you can imagine. You can join many exciting and adventurous activities such as; driving with jeep or ‘buggys’, paintball, ATV, mountain cycling, climbing at an artificial rock, camping, trekking, outdoor training & picnic organizations focused in teamwork. There is also a place in the club where you can have breakfast or dinner, and the award-winning figs of Bardacık, olives and wines they serve are worth a try. Near Demircili village, there are great bays filled with harmony of green and blue.
There are a total of three bays in the village; Ada, Bodrum and Demircili.
Demircili is a bay with colorful stones, glittering sea, a wide beach and a green forest stretching behind. You can find sun-beds and parasols at the beach.
Ada Koyu, located at the other side of Demircili Bay, is a bay you can have sunbath in sun-beds under the sedgy shadows and swim in sparkling sea while watching the fishing boats sail and the skin divers practice.
Bodrum Koyu, the third bay of Demircili Village, is also known as Cevriye’nin Yeri (Cevriye’s Place) in the region, thanks to the Deniz Yıldızı Beach Club, a popular place in the bay which is covered with flowers and grasses, run by Mrs. Cevriye along with her sister, mother and nephews.
The bath ruins of Airai ancient city near the sea gives a historical importance to the bay. The peninsula located at the west of Demircili village carries the traces of Airai Ancient City. You can climb the hill from the little pathways and see the royal mint ruins of the ancient City.
On the way back, you can buy organic tomatoes and peppers from the stands of the villagers, taste the famous ‘gözleme’s of Çınaraltı Restaurant under the shadows of plane trees and pine trees or watch the turtles swaying in the river.
