The Turquoise Coast/Lycia region
If this is your first visit to Turkey, you're in for a treat! Whether you want to relax in the sun or enjoy a more active holiday, there's something for everyone. Chill by the pool or on the nearby beach, explore the stunning coastline by boat or venture inland on a jeep safari. There are watersports and paragliding for the adventurous, a wide range of restaurants and bars to tempt you, local markets and bazaars for bargain hunting. If you want to know more about the history and culture of the area, there are plenty of excursions to choose from. Add to this beautiful scenery and the warmth and hospitality of the Turkish people and you have the recipe for a perfect holiday.
Calis is a small laid-back resort, a short minibus or water taxi ride from the lively town of Fethiye. The apartment is only a few minutes walk from Calis Beach where shops, bars and a wide choice of Turkish and international restaurants line the promenade. This is an ideal place to sit and watch the beautiful sunsets for which Calis is famous. The long beach means that it never gets too crowded and there are sunbeds and umbrellas available to hire.
A few minutes' walk from the apartment is the dolmus station (local minibus) with a cheap and frequent service to Fethiye. From here, the beautiful beach at Olu Deniz famous for its paragliding, the ghost village of Kayakoy and the lively inland resort of Hisaronu are within easy reach. You will find many agents along the beach front who arrange boat trips, excursions and sporting activities. The Aquapark is within walking distance or can be reached in a few minutes by dolmus.
If you need a change from working on the suntan, take the water taxi across the bay to Fethiye. Stroll along the picturesque harbour and watch the world go by from one of the waterside cafes or bars. There are several children's play areas alongside the harbour to entertain the younger members of the family. Visit the bazaar for jewellery and leather goods, locally produced pottery and handicrafts, herbs and spices and of course you can't go home without someTurkish delight! Go to the fish market, choose your freshly caught fish and take it to one of the surrounding restaurants where they will cook it any way you like and serve it with all the trimmings. Visit the bustling Tuesday market and haggle for bargains. Indulge yourself with a massage in a traditional Turkish bath (hammam).
If you're looking for a more lively night life, head for Hisaronu for a wide range of bars and restaurants open till all hours.
