Rabbit`s Island (Tavsanadasi)

You get there crossing a submerged antique mole, that may have served as a breakwater and access to the isle (Don`t forget to put on bathing slippers or flip flops!) It`s worth anyway to go through the water!

Lately excavated ruins and a splendid view on the whole bay make this visit be an unforgettable experience!

And take some carrots with you. The unafraid rabbits, sometimes they are less, sometimes more, that give their name to the isle, will be grateful.

The antique mole was built – acording to the legend – by king Mausolos for his love Artemisiya to get with dry feet to Rabbit`s island and to be able to experience  the magnificent sunset.

The magnificent sunset is reality and the past is tangible and you feel a multitude of secrets lying hidden under the ground.

And the rabbits are waiting for some food....
