Foca guide for lifestyle, entertainment and attractions
Foca is around seventy kilometres northwest of Izmir on the Aegean Sea. It is home to around 36,000 people, and this number doubles during the summer months.
Foca is an area of natural beauty, with clear waters, small coves and a lovely climate. Some of the bays are blue flag areas, and stunning places to swim. And it's not just the holidaymakers who know this - Foca's famous Mediterranean seals frolic in the area.
Foca is clean, lush and affordable, with property in Foca much cheaper than surrounding areas. A number of foreigners own holiday homes and permanent residences, particularly Germans. There are not many British permanent residents although this may change soon with the increasing number of flights heading to nearby Izmir.
Excavations a hundred years ago began to unearth monuments to the Hellenic and Roman areas. Slowly, remains of the Temple of Athena, an open-air theatre and a castle emerged. The town is full of old stone houses, many of which have been turned into boutique hotels.
