The Turquoise Coast/Lycia region
With so much to see and do you may have to stay longer than planned...
April to October here is the holiday season, however the summer months of July and August are clearly the busiest and the hottest. The Spring and the Autumn are lovely to relax by the pool and be able to comfortably walk to a restaurant in the evening.
Enjoy boat trips to Gocek and the 12 islands or to the butterfly valley, Saint Nicholas (Santa) island and Gemilier bay and to explore nearby attractions such as Oludeniz, the deserted old Greek village of Kaya, the gorge of Saklikent, the 16km long beach of Patara with its ruins or the ancient sites of Xanthos, Letoon and Tias, to name but a few.
THE LYCIAN WAY
This ancient trail links Fethiye with Antalya, however its full 500km-length would be beyond the scope of most holidays.
Keen walkers will enjoy descending this stunning valley fronted by a beautiful beach.
A justly popular beach resort, beautifully situated beside a lagoon that has become one of Turkey's most photographed images.
MOUNT CRAGUS BABADAG
Enjoy the unique experience of a tandem paraglide flight from a height of 1,970 metres towards the famous lagoon at Oludeniz.
A bustling local town. Stroll along the picturesque harbour, barter for bargains in the colourful market, treat yourself to a massage in a traditional Turkish hamam, or visit the ancient rock tomb of King Amyntas and the fascinating archaeological museum. You can even take a hydrofoil to pop over to the Greek island of Rhodes.
THE DESERTED GREEK VILLAGE OF KAYA
Set in a fertile valley, the atmospheric "Ghost Town" and the sleepy village below are well worth a visit. Beautiful restaurants.
KALKAN & kAS
Situated on an almost circular bay, Kalkan has grown from a humble sponge-fishing village to a sophisticated resort boasting an excellent selection of shops, bars and restaurants. Kas is a bustling harbour town built on the site of ancient Antiphellos and retains an authentically Turkish atmosphere.
The walk through this imposing gorge is a truly memorable experience, whilst the energetic can explore the Saklikent river by kayak or canoe.
XANTHOS, LETOON, TIAS, PINARA, KADYANDA
Just some of the ancient sites that can be visited from here. Together with Letoon, Xanthos - the former capital of the ancient kingdom of Lycia, has been designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Dating back to before 2000BC, Tlos is famed as the home of the mythological hero Bellerophon and his winged horse Pegasus. Pinara boasts extensive ruins, including innumerable rock tombs and an extremely well preserved amphitheatre. The ancient Lycian city of Kadyanda is hidden amidst dense forests at an altitude of 950 metres close to the village of Uzumlu.
DALYAN & IZTUZU
Set on the banks of the eponymous river, the bustling village of Dalyan is home to the ancient site of Caunos and the therapeutic mud baths at Lake Koycegiz, as well as providing access to the stunning Iztuzu beach, an important breeding ground for the endangered Caretta Caretta turtle.
THE SUNKEN CITY OF KEKOVA
Take a boat excursion to the uninhabited island of Kekova to view its sunken city.
A gloriously unspoilt sandy beach running for 18km (11 miles), backed by extensive sand dunes and the remains of an ancient city reputed to be the birthplace of Saint Nicholas.
GOCEK & THE TWELVE ISLANDS
Enjoy a boat trip from the harbour of Fethiye to the picturesque "twelve islands" on board a traditional wooden gulet.
Hisaronu and Ovacik lie close by in the hills behind Oludeniz, surrounded by pine forests and beautiful countryside. These resorts have grown from the popularity of Olu Deniz itself, as when the conservation area made it impossible to build more hotels and apartments by the sea, the hillside villages within easy reach of the beach started to grow.
Both resorts are now incredibly popular with British guests & this area has something for everybody from the quiet resort of Ovacik,the bustling resort of Hisaronu with its many bars & restaurants to one of the nicest beaches you will see at Oludeniz with the blue lagoon. You will find all ages holidaying in this area which is a perfect introduction for your first holiday in Turkey or one of the many guests who return year after year.
The local weekly market in Hisaronou is every Monday, Fethiye every Tuesday and Calis every Sunday, selling a wide range of leather goods, designer clothes, local fruit, veg and spices. A visit is a must, you should be prepared to barter for a full Turkish experience.
The Dolmus bus offers a fantastic service: its cheap and runs every few minutes in the high season. It runs from Olu Deniz through Hisaronu, Ovacik and takes you to the big bustling harbour town of Fethiye. Do visit the fish & meat market, the old town bazaar and the harbour. Also a place for the shoppers, designer wear shops and the Tuesday market is a must.
The Orka hotel is within walking distance of Villa Mandarin and has lots of activities for all the family. The staff are very helpful and are always at hand to help. The family pool bar has everything you will need and the outdoor circular bar is a must for pre-evening drinks serving cocktails amongst many other choices. All of this is free to use by residents of Villa Mandarin.
