The stunning marina town of Fethiye is one of Turkey’s highlights and is known as ‘a paradise that God granted to Earth”.
There is plenty to see in Fethiye including the ancient Lycian rock tombs, carved amazingly into the cliff face. The pretty marina offers a picture-perfect setting for a spot of lunch and here you can see traditional wooden gullets alongside small fishing boats and modern motor cruisers.
The colourful Fethiye market is well worth a visit and is popular with tourists and locals alike. Here you can find everything from modern day souvenirs to fresh fish and fragrant herbs and spices.
Just a bus ride away is the beautiful beach resort of Olu Deniz, also known as the blue lagoon, home to shimmering turquoise seas and a lovely sandy stretch. Bask in the sun and watch the numerous paragliders make their descent over the bay.
