Fethiye has fast become one our most popular resorts for holidays in Turkey, due to its diverse offering of culture, landscapes and a cosmopolitan vibe which matches that of a city rather than a smaller town.
The marina in Fethiye
The appealing town is home to a beautiful marina and an array of nightlife, restaurants, bars, shops and bazaars that will satisfy all tastes.
Steeped in history it has developed from a tiny village and small harbour port into a bustling and popular destination for visitors from all over the world.
Fethiye is located on Turkey’s south west coast, just 40 minutes from the international airport at Dalaman (book at transfer with us) occupying its position on the south and east side of the bay.
You’ll find that Fethiye’s location is one of its unique selling points, as it is surrounded by a cluster of other popular destinations – which are all incredibly different yet only 15 minutes apart.
From the tranquil mountain setting of Ovacik to the lights and nightlife of the party town of Hisaronu, the classic laid back feel of Calis Beach and the mountainous natural beauty of the Lycian Way.
On Tuesdays the weekly local market is a rainbow of colourful sights, sounds and smells as it hosts fruit, vegetable, clothing, spices and handcraft stalls.
The local bazaars also provide everything from fish to vegetables and fruit, hand woven clothes and traditional Turkish arts and craft. The prices are among the cheapest of all the regular markets (but don’t forget to negotiate on the prices you pay for your goodies).
Another breathtaking place to visit is Butterfly Valley. Nestled in one the most beautiful bays of Fethiye, the valley can be reached by boat from Oludeniz.
Oludeniz remains one of the most photographed beaches on the Mediterranean Sea. The resort is home to a beautiful secluded beach and an infamous blue lagoon. Oludeniz is regarded as one of the best places in the world to paraglide due to its panoramic views.
One of our most popular Holiday Mate trips is the 12 Islands Boat Trip (known as one of “the” holiday classics) of Fethiye trips. Spend a relaxing day on board and sample the delights of each island (you may even spot a sea turtle or two) and you can take a dip, to cool off at your leisure.
Those seeking a more subdued (or romantic) nautical experience may wish to sample the ever popular Sunset Cruise. Watch the sunset slowly over the turquoise waters of Oludeniz and enjoy food and drinks onboard.
Why not pre book your tours and excursions online with us before you board the plane! It’ll save you time, which is a bonus (more time for you to spend lazing by the pool or on the beach).
There is something for everyone to enjoy whilst on holiday in Turkey. Our Holiday Mate trips include paragliding, Turkish baths, Horse Riding in Kayakoy and Jeep Safari, to name but a few.
Trips and excursions are a great way to meet new friends whilst you’re enjoying your holiday in Turkey – we look forward to seeing you soon!
