Fethiye is situated in a bay with numerous islands which can be visited by boat trips from the harbour. Carpet shops, boutiques, restaurants and clubs are found in the old town and restaurants and bars line the promenade and harbour side. With the variety of places to eat, drink, and relax, many pleasant hours can be spent watching people, boats, and the Fethiye pelicans! Treat yourself to a Turkish bath or visit to the Turkish barber. There are also ancient Lycian rock tombs cut into the hillside and other areas of historical interest.
To our right is Calis, with its famous beach and sunsets, water park and variety of restaurants. You don’t need a car, (Dolmus or public minibuses seem to go everywhere) but it can add to the holiday allowing the freedom to explore, stopping as you wish.
Travelling through the small villages around the area you will find how traditional life continues. If you prefer to explore by boat there are boat trips available from Fethiye harbour or from Calis calling at many of the islands and the bays unreachable by road. You can also take a day trip to the Greek island of Rhodes. By private car hire or via the wonderfully reliable and economic bus system, you can explore both inland for example to Kaya (‘ghost’)village or along the coast to the famous Olu Deniz lagoon or further to Kas and Kalkan.
In both Fethiye and Calis there are banks, supermarkets, chemists and all you need for day to day life. There is also good medical and dental care should this need arise.
On Sunday people assemble in Calis for market day and on Tuesday in Fethiye, affording the opportunity to buy some of the best local produce as well as clothes, leather goods, shoes, textiles, souvenirs etc. There is a another fresh produce market on Fridays. Mugla province is famed for its almonds, honey and thyme. The apartments are ideal for couples, friends or families, with plenty in the surrounding area to see and do during your stay; ancient sites and modern life.
The sea is a level 5/7 minute walk, at the bottom of the road, and the area is popular for fishing. From there you can walk to the left along the promenade, with activities and cafes, or alternatively, right towards Calis, finding free empty beaches and others with cafes or restaurants and sunbeds. Beyond the town there are numerous bays, some sandy, some pebbly but all with crystal clear water and many ideal for snorkeling, which can be reached by the frequent minibuses or car if preferred.
