From Adana take the E-90 to Mersin and get onto the 400. Take this all the way to Kizkalesi. You'll know you're there when you see a huge castle in the water. This spot is right in front of the Castle.

Atmosphere

Kizkalesi is a really laid back town to hang out in. The wave is ok, but if your getting surf in Turkey then its a good day. Plus, where else are you going to surf with a huge Castle as your backdrop.
