The Turquoise Coast/Lycia region
There's only so much you can do on one holiday in Fethiye so we've tried to keep this list of must-sees short. All recommendations are what we love about this area and what we would like to recommend to you if it's your first visit to the Fethiye area of Turkey.
Recommendations are in no particular order and we've assumed visits to Fethiye will be in summer...otherwise, we would have a lot more trekking suggestions on this list. Also, this isn't a page of food & drink - for ideas on filling your stomach while you are here, see our page about Eating & Drinking In Fethiye.
1. Fethiye Old Town Stroll around shaded Paspatur, the old town of Fethiye, and visit the many shops for all your souvenirs. Quench your thirst at Deep Blue Bar - well we did say we were biased!
2. Fethiye Rock Tombs A bit of a pull, but climb up to the main Lycian rock tombs in Fethiye - the tomb of Amyntas - and take in the amazing views of Fethiye marina and the whole of the bay. You can always reward yourself with an icy cold Efes Pilsen when you come back down into Fethiye.
3. Fethiye Boat Trips There's not just the 12 Island Boat trip that you might have heard about - although they are certainly amazing value for money (prices change throughout the season but the maximum is around 25 lira per head) - 8 hours, about 5 swim stops and your lunch included. If you don't like the idea of a big boat, loads of other tourists and music, then book a private boat trip from Fethiye. Those could be around £150 for the boat for the day and they usually visit the quieter bays of Fethiye. But our personal favourite boat trip from Fethiye for a great value day out is the Sunday Market boat trip to Göcek.
4. Fethiye Beaches Yes, Fethiye has beaches! Take the Karagözler dolmu? to any of the bays in Fethiye. Aksazlar Bay (before Letoonia Club Hotel), Samanl?k Bays, Kuleli, Boncuklu. If it's not too hot, you pass all of these bays on the Fethiye Peninsula trek. Sundays will be very busy with Turkish families.
5. Fethiye Market Great if you're self-catering rather than staying in a hotel in Fethiye. Marvel at the lovely fresh fruit and veg on Fethiye Market before strolling around the hundreds of fake designer clothes, shoes, sunglasses stalls. Can't say we ever buy any of the fake stuff but it's worth a wander around. Oh, and you should try Gözleme - Turkish pancake. (The market is every Tuesday in Fethiye, every Sunday in Çal?? and if it's just the foods you're after, there's a pleasant, low key farmers' market every Friday on the site of the Tuesday market)
6. Ölüdeniz Beaches No holiday to Fethiye, Turkey is complete without a day on the beach at Ölüdeniz; one of the most photographed beaches in the world. Belcekiz Beach has the crashing waves or you can swim in the lagoon. The dolmu? from Fethiye will take you down to the private beaches of the lagoon for free if you ask the driver. We normally go to Sea Horse Beach. (Dolmu?es leave the dolmu? station in Fethiye every few minutes. In high season, the last one back to Fethiye is around 2am. Check with the driver. Journey time from Fethiye - about 40 mins)
7. Kayaköy Kayaköy has many ruins left from the population exchange between Turkey and Greece in 1923. Beautiful countryside, Turkish village life and a sad reminder of the past. Don't leave Kaya without going to Cin Bal restaurant where you barbecue your own food. (The dolmu? to Kaya from Fethiye is every hour on the hour from the dolmu? station. Every half an hour in high season. The last dolmu? back to Fethiye is around 8pm in low season and 10pm in high season so check with the driver if you don't want to end up in a taxi. Journey time from Fethiye - about 40 mins) Or you can walk to Kayaköy from Fethiye if you feel like it!
8 Gemiler Bay Stunning scenery and away from the crowds of Ölüdeniz if you're looking for peace and quiet. Really calm sea, perfect for swimming. A couple of small beach bars and sun loungers on the beach. (The kaya dolmus goes all the way to Gemiler Bay every couple of hours or so in high season. If not, get off the dolmus as far as the last stop and walk down the hill to the bay - about 1 hour. Don't forget, you'll have to walk back up later on!)
9. The Fethiye Fountains Each evening, throughout the summer season and on special occasions throughout the year, too, the fountains of U?ur Mumcu Park (just behind the new town square dance to music and light up the area in flashes of colour. You can see some more of the fountains in our Fethiye fountains photo post. Times for the fountain shows are posted around the park.
Saklikent Gorge Amazing, breathtaking. Yes, lots of tourists go there in high season but places become famous for a reason. We never get bored of Saklikent Gorge. If you're here early in the season, go on any day except Sunday and it should be free from crowds. You have the gushing rapids and colossal cliff faces to yourself. Eat at the fabulous Kay?p Cennet Restaurant. Journey time from your villa - about 10 mins).
Tlos Ruins Very underrated as far as we are concerned. We've seen many ruins in Turkey and the mountainous Tlos near Fethiye is yet to be beaten for us. Amazing views over the Xanthos Valley. Lycian and Roman ruins intermingled with mountain village life. No visit to Tlos is complete without stopping in for a drink or a bite to eat at the Original Yaka Park. Journey time from your villa - about 10 mins
