I had not even realized what my idea of paradise was until I went to Aspat Beach yesterday.  Solida Beach Club is situated on its own private bay with acres of flat land that provides its occupants a variety of different lounging options.

From what I understand, the owner is a businessman from Ankara who is realizing the ultimate utopia by supporting the arts, history and nature in this proverbial gold mine instead of selling out to developers.   There is a beach area as well as a big, wide lawn that is littered with lawn chairs, hammocks and swings under palm trees or canopies.  But there is a catch to this paradise... you have to share the space with sculptures that were produced by artists at Aspat for Aspat.  I believe in August this Eden of delights turns into an artist's colony and the art work strewn throughout the grounds are the end-products of these activities.

Between swimming and lounging around, I walked around the premises and took pictures of whatever caught my fancy.  Unfortunately, I couldn't find the information for all the works, so some will have to remain anonymous for now.
