Sitting on the south west of Turkey's Turquoise Coast is the flourishing town of Fethiye. Its Paspatur (or old quarter) has oodles of traditional charm while the resort's atmospheric town is abuzz with bars and restaurants not far from a cosmopolitan marina. If you want to soak up the sun during your Fethiye holidays, the nearest beach is just a short stop on the water taxi at Calis! With gorgeous hotels, full-board gems and great luxury resorts, Fethiye attracts families, couples and friends looking for an easy holiday in the sunshine.
The crystal-clear waters of Calis are great for swimming and snorkelling and there are plenty of places to stop for a snack by the beach. The fine beaches of Oludeniz, the most photographed of the region, are just a 45 minutes’ ride away by a dolomus. Climb up to the main Lycian rock tombs in Fethiye, which are worth the effort for the panoramic views it offers, or uncover the site of the Tomb of Amyntas, dating back to the Lycians who were once living there.
Fethiye is a great destination for those who like a mix of activities and beach time. The coastline surrounding the resort is dotted with picturesque coves and beaches. So, whether you explore the cobbled streets of the old town, watch the fountains in the evening near the Town Square or choose to day trip to neighbouring resorts, holidays in Fethiye offer fun for all the family. Do try out Gözleme (a Turkish flatbread), Tarhana soup and other Turkish delicacies at local markets and make it a holiday to remember.
