Located in Lycia—the westernmost section of Mediterranean Turkey—Fethiye is a fascinating town with beautiful clear waters, a hot climate and great nightlife. With plenty of activities to try, Fethiye holidays promise to be an ideal getaway in the sunny Mediterranean.
Fethiye is serviced by Antalya Airport. There is a local bus service which runs from the airport to the town. Visitors may also consider hiring a car during a holiday to Fethiye. While the town itself is easily navigated on foot, hiring a car will mean easier access to surrounding countryside and beaches. Fethiye has a very hot climate, particularly in its summer season. The best times to visit are spring or autumn, when the climate is hot but not stifling. The timezone is GMT+3.
The best place to start on Fethiye holidays is the town's fantastic marina. Head down to the beach and enjoy the glorious weather. For food, try the local fish market for freshly caught seafood at a very reasonable price. Besides lounging and swimming in the clear blue waters, visitors can have a go at some exciting water sports, such as canoeing or parasailing. Fethiye is a popular place for paragliding, and nearby there are schools and training centres which also accommodate complete beginners. Take a hike to Kayaköy Village, the fascinating ruins of a Greek town with well-preserved structures and churches.
Fethiye is also famed for its Lycian sarcophagus, or ancient stone coffins, and there are many carved in a traditional style all around the town. Try an Island Day Cruise to get to know the local area. Leaving every morning from the harbour and returning in the early evening, the boats take the passengers to nearby lagoons, sea caves and beaches, where they are given the chance to explore.
