The Turquoise Coast/Lycia region
This part of coastline is known as the Turquoise Coast. Summer temperatures average 33 - 40+C with a winter average of 16C. The area is steeped in history being the location of ancient Lycia, and contains a large number of historic ruins such as at Kaunos, Xanthos, Letoon and Patara.
The area around Fethiye and Oludeniz is one of the most spectacular regions in the Mediterranean, offering a broad mix of beach resorts, boat excursions, watersports, and incredible mountain scenery. From Fethiye the main road to Ovacik and Hisaronu, climbs up through pine-forest clad hills to a small plateau where the apartment is situated. The Lycian Trial, a 530 km hiking trail begins here and ends just short of Antalya further East. The road then descends to Oludeniz Beach with it stunning lagoon, pictured above.
Literally meaning " Dead Sea", this beach and lagoon is arguably the most photographed beach in Europe. It is a popular tourist destination in the summer and has lots of restaurants, shops, bars and the beach has shower, toilet and changing areas. The beach is free but the lagoon charges a very small entrance fee, but is well worth it. Boat trips to many of the local beauty spots and islands leave from here every morning. With its laid back atmosphere you can easily spend the day on the beach watching the paragliders descending from Mount Babadag on to the beach front. If you are brave enough you can try a tandem paraglide from Mount Babadag. Well worth it - an unforgettable and unique experience to this area.
Fethiye is a lively bustling town with shops, markets, and plenty of nightlife. The town has a port where you can catch a hydrofoil to Rhodes (1.5 hour). You can also pick up many boat tours, fishing trips and diving excursions from here. Many of the restaurants serve local and international food to suit all tastes. Fethiye is also a main centre for getting a bus to all parts of Turkey. The market in Fethiye is on Tuesdays and is definitely worth a visit to get a bargain. Çalis Beach is located 5 Kms north of Fethiye and can be reached either by Dolmus or Water Taxi from Fethiye harbour. There are restaurants, bars and shops. The westerly facing beach is perfect for watching the sunset.
This deserted Greek settlement was built in the 14th century on the ancient site of Karmillassos which was destroyed by earthquake. The village was abandoned after the Turkish and Greek governments signed a 'population exchange' agreement in 1922. The Greek population was exchanged with the Turkish population residing in Western Thrace. The large hillside town is still abandoned and the ruins have the feel of a ghost town. Kayakoy can be reached by dolmus or on foot via a well marked hiking trail from Oludeniz or Fethiye.
The Lycian Trail a 530 km hiking trail begins just down the road from our apartment. Obviously a major expedition to attempt the whole trail which can take over a month to complete. A few hours walk out on this trail
from Ovacik gives you some spectacular Views over Oludeniz and the Coast line. (Go prepared though- can be very hot in the summer)
This area situated between Fethiye and Oludeniz benefits from spectacular mountain views and cooling breezes, welcomed in the heat of the summer months. The area has many restaurants and shops, especially in the centre of Hisaronu. Here you can also arrange tours and trips from the many travel agents. There are many bars and a few clubs but the area still remains a friendly, relaxed atmosphere suitable for families as well.
