With a reputed 300 days of sun each year, those who worship at the shrine of Ra should consider making a pilgrimage to Calis beach in Turkey this summer 2020. Holidaymakers are flocking in their droves to this resort found on Turkey’s hugely popular Aegean coast (also colloquially referred to as the ‘turquoise coast’), drawn by a mixture of the crystal clear deep blue waters and swathes of golden sand; which of course, are the foundations of any good sunshine break a long way from home. For those wondering where the name, ‘Calis’ comes from, the historical truth of the matter isn’t quite as glamorous as what tourists are confronted with today. Not least because the literal translation of Calis Beach is ‘work beach’. And specifically relates to the presence of a small railway which spanned the length of the beach to the jetty and was used to transport chromium which had been mined and extracted inland, back in the more industrial day. Fast forward many years, and the only physical endeavours being observed in these same parts are visitors rigorously applying Factor 30 before focusing on topping up that all-important tan.
