Horse Riding Patara Beach and Sand Dunes

2 Hour Beach & Sand Dunes Ride: Starting from our stables in Patara we pass through the forest on level trails and when reaching  the viewpoint from where we can see the ruins, we then  travel down to the main road leading to the beach.  We pass between the ruins and then reach the sand dunes before the beach, we ride over this stretch of sand to reach the beach.  We can only ride along the beach if it is not the season for the hatching turtles.  You can also go into the water if you are a confident rider ( however if it is the turtle hatching time, we will not go to into the water, we will then climb to the top of the sand dunes and enjoy sunset or sunrise from there) after this we stop for a rest. After resting we will start riding back over the sand, through the forest, past the ruins and back to our stables in Patara.
