Great Things to Do

From wandering the Old Town to soaking up the sun on the glorious sands of nearby Calis Beach, Fethiye creates amazing holiday memories.

Hop in a Water Taxi to Calis Beach

Fethiye doesn’t have a beach of its own, but a quick ride in a water taxi and you’ll be at Calis Beach, where the sands stretch for what seems like miles. This peaceful beach, backed by mountains, was once used in local industry, but it’s now home to rows of sunloungers, so the only work to be done is topping up that tan!

Haggle for Gold in the Bazaars

If you fancy bartering for a bargain or two, Fethiye’s bazaars are well worth a visit. They’re not as hectic as some, which ensures you can actually enjoy the experience. The weekly local market is every Tuesday, which sells everything from gold to handicrafts, so you can pick up some gifts on the cheap.

Learn the Art of Belly Dancing

If you’re after a little traditional flavour, look no further than Fethiye’s bars, which have a magical ability to get people up and dancing in no time. Watch the pros as they show off their belly dancing moves in bars like the Ottoman Bar, or learn how to do it yourself at Ametyist in Calis Beach, where they serve food, too.

Wonder at the Tomb of Amyntas

In the hills that overlook Fethiye, you will find the Tomb of Amyntas and several others. These incredible Lycian rock tombs are breathtaking, with intricate designs carved into the cliff face. Enjoy a walk up to these tombs – it’s a bit of a climb, but well worth the effort. The views of Fethiye are equally magnificent.

Getting Around

If you’ve been to Turkey before, you’ve probably enjoyed the experience of riding in a dolmus, and Fethiye is full of them. They’re very cheap and convenient. Walking is a pleasure in the compact town centre. Taxis are ideal if you’re not planning on using them often (fares soon add up!), and there is a water taxi that takes you from Fethiye to Calis. If you’d like your own freedom, hiring a car is also easy to do.

By Bus

Dolmus minibuses are the most common way of getting around; some routes are air-conditioned, but some aren’t. Either way, travel is very cheap and frequent. There are also regular buses, too.

By Car

Parking in the centre of Fethiye can be a problem, and petrol can be pricey. However, car hire does provide you with the flexibility to come and go as you please. Stick to the right if you decide to drive.
