Male Pampering, Getting a Shave in Turkey

You cannot really visit any of the resorts on Turkey’s southern coasts without at least once hopping on board a boat and exploring the coves and little beaches that hide away from the madding crowds of the main resorts of Fethiye, Calis, Marmaris and Bodrum.  In fact it is a must.
