The Turquoise Coast/Lycia region
Where to begin? This is such a wonderful area of Turkey with so many exciting activities for everyone. You can relax all day by the apartment of course, or go sunbathing and swimming in the turquoise-coloured waters of the world famous Oludeniz beach. Try paragliding, sailing, diving or trekking.
Book a 12 islands boat trip with lunch included. You can get off the boat to swim in the lagoons. A wonderful day out for less than £15 a head. Visit the gorge at Saklikent on a jeep trip which is loads of 'water' fun! The Turtle sanctuary at Dalyan or Butterfly Valley are also well worth a visit. We recommend a Turkish entertainment evening held at the the old deserted and once Greek inhabited 'ghost' village of Kayakoy. Or visit Kakakoy during the day and have lunch in the tree house restaurant where food is cooked on outdoor barbecues with a play area for children.
There are many restaurants in the area where you can sample real Turkish cuisine and many historical trips you can take. Children are always welcomed. Don't forget to take a very relaxing Turkish bath (hamam) and massage at least once before you leave!
You will find all these details in our apartment manual but meanwhile check out a few web sites:
Fethiye is the main harbour town in the area with good shopping and restaurants. Dolmus - local mini buses - leave from outside the apartment every 10 minutes or so and cost on average about £1/1Euro per journey depending on distance. You will be in Fethiye in about 15 minutes. Promenade along the sea front or visit the local markets and bazaars. Fethiye is also a good centre for catching tour boats and visiting the ancient sites in western Lycia. You will find a couple of good supermarkets in Fethiye as well - Migros and Carrefour.
Fethiye has a wonderful Tuesday market with endless stalls and a fantastic array of fresh fruit and vegetables. It is a real day out and a great atmosphere. We always start first at the outdoor food cafes for Turkish pancakes and freshly squeezed orange juice!
The nearest beach is the spectacular Olu Deniz beach - again catch a Dolmus and in 10 minutes you can spread out on your beach chair and spend the day in the sun. Lots of water sports here at the beach.
Especially for children there is a private water park in Ovacik just a short walk from the Letoon apartments - www.granducel.com.
Hisaronu is a satellite resort of Fethiye. Set on a hill 1500 feet above sea level. Catch a Dolmus or take a 15 minute pleasant walk from the apartment to the excellent shops, restaurants and bars of Hisaronu. Walk around soaking up the holiday atmosphere of an evening and feel safe and relaxed. Go-Kart and play activity areas for children. Good Azda & Migros supermarket here as well for all your groceries.
It is also worth visiting the quieter resort of Çalis (Chalis) for an afternoon strolling along the beach front and sitting in the many cafes and bars. About a 10 minute drive by Dolmus from Fethiye. Çalis also has a fresh market on Sundays - very popular. There is also a bigger water park at Calis to keep the children entertained - see www.sultansaquacity.com
