Holidays in Fethiye are ideal for those who want a taste of traditional Turkey
. You won't find high rise hotels or huge manmade attractions here ' Fethiye has developed from a sleepy village set into a lush, green hillside to become a quaint holiday resort that's perfect for relaxed holidays.
Although you won't find a sand beach in Fethiye, there's a golden stretch nearby at Calis. There is a pebble and shingle beach by the sea here, as well as an atmospheric promenade with plenty of places to stop and take in the view.
You'll also find Fethiye, close to the Dalaman airport, to be perfectly positioned to enjoy many of the cultural and natural attractions of Turkey's stunning Turquoise Coast - from ancient Roman ruins to amazing hot springs.
Those who love to relax on the sands will find a quiet beach just a short distance away by taxi or ferry. Calis is a small and laid back resort, with beachfront bars and restaurants that make it easy for you to enjoy a bite and a drink just steps from your sunlounger.
Kayakoy is a ghost village just 8km south of Fethiye that's well worth a wander if you're interested in Turkish history. The Greek inhabitants of this once thriving village were forced to move back to Greece in 1923, leaving being an eerie collection of deserted building and churches. These were then damaged by an earthquake in the 50's, adding further interest to this exciting archaeological attraction. The views from the hillside ruins are also fantastic.
The Old Quarter
The Old Quarter of Fethiye, also known as the Paspatur, is a perfect place to take a wander. Step back in time on narrow, cobbled streets which wind past whitewashed buildings, mosques and traditional shops. Enjoy a mint tea or a Turkish coffee here for a laid back way to spend a few hours.
Olu Deniz is one of Fethiye's Turquoise Coast neighbours and well worth a visit for a change of pace. The jewel in the crown of this popular, family-friendly resort is its breathtaking blue lagoon, which pools at the end of the beautiful soft, white sand beach.
Lycian Rock Tombs
The Roman Tombs carved carefully into a Fethiye rock face are a classic photo opportunity. For a close up look, be prepared to pull on your walking shoes ' you'll have 200 steps to scale, but it's worth it. Some of these tombs date from the 4th Century BC!
Take an excursion to the Patara National Park and you're able to canoe the calm waters of the Xanthos River. Drink in the stunning natural scenery, the wildlife and the views across to the distant mountains, before making a stop at Patara beach ' considered one of the best in the country.
Bathe at Pamukkale
From a distance, these white hillsides can confuse you with the assumption that they're covered in snow. In fact, calcium deposits are the cause of their bright, white appearance, and the hillside is dotted with pools of warm spring water that are perfect for paddling in.
