Go to Butterfly Valley in Faralaya!

Lovely beach, a nice walk through the valley ending with two small waterfalls, and the possibility to hike all the way up to the top of the hill where you join the Lycian Way.
You can reach by boat from Oludeniz (possibly from other places as well) or by car from Faralaya but from here you have to walk down to the beach.
Did it last year with my mates and gf, not the easiest thing to do as in some parts you literally have to climb but there are ropes that help you all along the way! Particular experience but absolutely worth it! Incredible views from the top and on the way down!

Also, Patara Beach in Gelemis.

Huge beach, something like 14km long. Quite busy where the car park is but you just have to walk a few hundreds meters and you're completely alone…very relaxing atmosphere!
Saw turtle eggs hatching there!

checked bags should be fine. Hand luggage they might give you problems.

Use a proxy. www.trustedproxies.com/free-trial for a weeks free trial. Used it on holiday, worked fine but took about a day to send me the password. If you need something quickly then order the 6 hour free trial at proxyplayer.co.uk

Had four days in Marrakesh and it's a pretty cool place to go away and have a break from it all.
Weather was mid 30's which was nice. Brush up on your french as it will help.

Restaurants were cool.
Ate at Comptoir Darna, really cool place. Great lamb dishes

Azar Bar - salmon was of note

Le Jad - 'in' bar atm and full of straight 9's
http://www.jad-mahal.com/lounge-bar/

Food and drink was comparable to London prices, spirit was costing 120/150 dhms which was around £10/£12.

Well worth a trip if you can get a decent deal

getting away for 2 weeks in august, thinking of splitting it between two places, starting with somewhere lively like the Croatian island Pag and somewhere else close by for more of a relaxing city break like the Bosnian capital Sarajevo.

anyone been to these places and have much to say?

Looking to go in the summer with the lads. What's the night life like? Was also thinking about going down to the coast to Casablanca for a few days as well.
