The Butterfly Valley is probably one of the most beautiful places I visited in Turkey. Even now, the thought of being at the beautiful secluded sand beach while being surrounded by the deep blue water of the Mediterranean Sea and the beautiful rocky mountain still put me in a trance.
The Butterfly Valley got its name from the vast population of butterflies that used to live in the valley but ever since the place was discovered by tourists, butterflies were seen less and less until none exist anymore in the valley.
Mass tourism and party cruises are to blame for driving away all the butterflies but that doesn't mean that the Butterfly Valley is not worth a visit. The place is still one of the prettiest places in Turkey and if you know how you can easily get away from the tourist crowds and enjoy a peaceful experience at the Butterfly Valley like it was meant to as I did.
