Fethiye

The popular resort Fethiye, boasts an important marina at the head of a beautiful bay strewn with islands. Above the town, (called Telmessos in antiquity), numerous Lycian rock tombs, reproducing the facades of ancient buildings, were cut into the cliff face. The Tomb of Amyntas, which probably dates from the fourth century B.C. is the most remarkable.
Swimmers head for the popular Çalis Beach, four kilometres west of town, or to Sovalye Island, opposite the harbour, which blazes with flowers in the spring.
"Virgin of the Illumination Country " Fethiye, is in a bay open through north, surrounded by pine forests

1 of the 12 Islands...

    Only by chance did we find Kaya Wine House, well off the beaten track.. by a hire Car. We spent 3 hours lapping up the Atmosphere and views, anybody wishing fine food, wine and relaxation, this treat is not to be missed.....

    THIS PAGE IS REALLY GOOD I MUST VISIT FETHIYE NEXT TIME I COME TO TURKEY, ALTHOUGH THE PARAGLIDING LOOKS A BIT HAIR-RAISING.

    Thanks for the paragliding tip. I am learning and it is good to see where I can visit later. Certainly looks like a good bet.
