Yuva Eco-Holiday Centre is located in an area known as Faralya, a rural community of 500 people dispersed along several kilometers of quiet mountainside and forest. Here the western escarpment of the Toros range plunges directly into the sea, creating an area of Homeric beauty. Olive, citrus, carob trees and pinewoods surround the area. Much of the forest is protected as a nature reserve and there is a feeling of peace and safety. The seashore is known as the Turquoise Coast, referring to the beautiful blue waters. Its most outstanding feature is a huge beach that protects a sandy lagoon called Oludeniz. This lagoon contains a rare enzyme thought to have healing properties.
