ESEN CREEK / PATARA - TURKEY :
Esen Creek ( Xanthos ) flows throughout PATARA NATIONAL PARK of Turkey . Esen river is idel for canoeing trips for every age from 7 till 70 and experience is not required.If you are on holiday in " Kas, Kalkan, Patara, Fethiye, Oludeniz, Calis, Hillside, Ovacik, Hisaronu " resorts - holiday villages, we extremely recommend you to not miss one day canoe - mud bad  adventure on ESEN CREEK.
Esen Creek starts running under the bridge in Kinik and travels for 16 km before reaching Cayagzi (River Mouth), and it takes almost four hours to travel by canoe.

As one of the most important ports of the ancient Lycia, Patara is a heavenly place that enjoys nature's generosity. Patara, with its silt sand, which reminds one of a desert, its clean and clear waters, ancient city, and world-renownd beach, hosts thousands of tourists every year.

According to Lycian rnythology, Leto gave birth to her twins Apollo and Arternis on this land and gave them their first bath in the Xanthos ( called as Esen today ) Creek. For this reason, the creck is considered holy according to Christian belief.

With a length of 18 km, Patara is the longest heach of Turkey with its narrowest part 280 m and widest part almost 1,500 m. It is also listed by the Ministry of Environment as a National Park and protected region. Patara's secluded beach area is also a breeding ground of Loggerhead Marine Turtles Caretta caretta. Persons who go through a sand cure in this beach, which has a type ot microorganism which used to be an indicator of a clean sea thousands of years ago, are freed lrom physical pain and aches.
Patara is the activity center of Kas and Kalkan. Visitors come here to enjoy water sports, canoe trips, hikes in the nature, and horseback and motor safari tours in the sand dunes. We participated first in a horseback safari and then a canoe trip.
