Things to do

-Beaches: Foca is known for its gorgeous bays and natural beaches which draw visitors by the thousands every year. The small islands that are found near Foca are also endowed with beautiful stretches of soft sand that are ideal for seaside picnics. Orak, the largest of these islands, is particularly loved for its vast beaches and majestic cliffs.

-Ancient mosques: Hailing from the Ottoman era is the Fatih Mosque which was constructed after the town was captured in 1455. Though it has lost much of its original architectural design due to subsequent restorations, it still has that ancient allure visitors will love. There are inscriptions on the gates that lead to the courtyards accrediting their construction to a Mustafa Aga and another on the main gate giving mention to the Suleyman who restored the mosque.

-Museums: While in the Izmir region history buffs can wrap up the trip back in time with a visit to the Archaeological Museum there which contains some of the finds from digs in Foca that began way back in the early 20th century. The museum contains over 1,500 artefacts in total as well as libraries, photography rooms, exhibition and conference halls. Another museum worth a visit is the Museum of History and Art at Kulturpark. Statues from Byzantine, Hellenistic, Roman and Archaic periods are displayed there.

-Turkish baths: These are yet more of the historical treasures those who book holiday homes in Foca can look forward to seeing. There are two baths situated in the Ataturk neighbourhood that historians say belong to the Ottoman period. Time has done a number on these precious artefacts and only one of them still has the typical dome at its centre.

-Food and drink: Those who will be spending their summer in Foca holiday rentals need not fret too much about cooking as they will find themselves surrounded by great eateries serving excellent Turkish cuisine. At Kozbeyli Sofrasi visitors will have a rich menu to choose from as they listen to strains of traditional Turkish music and enjoy breathtaking scenery. Fresh, tasty seafood and fish can be enjoyed at Fokai Restaurant.

The appt was nice and central near shops restuarants and also the bus station if you wanted to go to Izmir etc. Last but not least our Rep at the appt was Rose who was very helpful and friendly nothing was a bother to her. I must recommend Kandora taxi service to and from the Airport our driver was also very friendly. Johns flats ....10 out of 10
