About the area:
This is probably the easiest area of Turkey to get excited about. Wherever you travel here the coastline is outstanding, the weather is excellent and there are heaps of things to see and do. The Turquoise coast is probably the finest in Turkey and because of this, it has become the principal choice of destination for many first time and repeat visitors. It is also, of course, the area that shows the highest level of tourist interest, the rugged nature of the area is exciting and well worth the trip and with continually improving infrastructure, road and tunnel upgrades more of the coastline can be seen and transfer from Dalaman to Villa Palm, is about one hour.
This region reflects the ancient Lycia culture and they knew a thing or two about designing cities. Between Fethiye and Antalya there are a score of sites worth seeing, Lycian, Dorian, Roman, and almost anything whatever you can imagine. Highlights include Myra, Simena, and just about everything in the Xanthos valley, not forgetting the magical site at Olympos.
Excursions can be booked through local tour operators and Tiny Akropol Tourism.
The coastline from Marmaris to Fethiye is green and spectacular, the beaches are generally pretty good, ranging from large pebble to golden sand, and it is here, usually via Dalaman airport, that you will enjoy your Turkish summer Holiday and have a great time. The key to enjoying all the delights that this area offers is mobility provided by just getting on the myriad of small buses, the dolmus only a few pence each, running up and down the coast, you will be more than rewarded for your effort, and if you can hire a car the flexibility of exploring the more remote beaches, bays and villages. The nature of the landscape lends itself to activity and a growing number of companies are offering daily excursions, tours and whole holidays based on getting out and doing things. Investigating the options before you travel will probably pay off in the long run but you will find somebody willing to help you everywhere you go. Do consider visiting out of season if you can. Any time from March to October is fine and the spring in particular is lovely down here. In the autumn the water is still warm and you should find everything easier and cheaper outside of the July/August rush.
Hisaronu and Ovacik; lie in foothills of the mountains above and behind Olu Deniz, surrounded by pine forests and beautiful countryside. These resorts have grown from the popularity of Olu Deniz itself, as when the conservation area made it impossible to build more hotels and apartments by the sea, the hillside villages within easy reach of the beach started to grow. Both resorts are now incredibly popular with British guests and this area has something for everybody from the quiet resort of Ovacik, the bustling strip of Hisaronu with its many bars and restaurants to one of the most famous beaches you will see at Oludeniz with the Blue Lagoon. You will find something for all ages holidaying here, which is a perfect introduction for your first holiday, or one of the many visitors who return year after year to Turkey and often buy a property here!
Fethiye; is a bustling regional centre and with a lot of history, one of the oldest towns on the coast and the most popular, it has a large flat coastal flood plain and a natural marina with both fishing and charter boats. The summer season sees regular trips to Rhodes about one and a half hours away. Famous Calis beach some 5Km north is served by water taxi or dolmus from Fethiye and is around 4 Km long where you will find a shingle beach with shops bars and eateries along the front.
Kaya Village or Ghost town as it is known is near to Ovacik and has great historical significance as well as its beautiful natural surroundings of the sea, forests, plains and hills, originally named Levissi. Kaya means rock and derives its name from the rocky land on which it was built. Surrounded by forests and leaning against rocky hills, backed by the sea and facing the fertile plains this district has attracted many civilizations throughout history. Predating the fourth century BC it has gone through many of the major and important historical influences and sometimes occupations, including Lucian, Roman, Byzantine and the Ottoman periods. The first images you will see are the ruins of the Greek town. Turkish victory in the war of independence created an enmity with the Greeks fighting on the Anatolian soil and the Greek communities who for centuries had lived happily side-by-side and in friendship with them as neighbours. This culminated in an exchange agreement between the Turkish and Greek administration and the Greek orthodox population of Kaya were sent to Greece while the Turks living in Greece were sent back to Turkey. This was in line with the agreement of the Turkish, Greek population exchange on the 30th June 1923. When the Turks arrived they could not settle in the historically Greek village and moved down to the plains and this created the appearance of a ghost town.
There are two churches standing and worth a visit. The main one the Panayia Piryiotissa Basilica still has murals, mosaic floors and marble alter screens. Just outside the church is a small building containing human bones. When the Greeks were leaving they exhumed and took the skulls of their ancestors with them. The churches are thought to date back to around 1883 in the early Byzantine period. The silhouette of Kaya composes of around 1,000 houses, 2 large churches, 14 chapels, 2 schools and they have survived in a partly demolished state to this day! The houses are built on the slopes and do not overshadow each other and show attractive samples of local architecture of that time. It is a tribute to the skill of the local workmen who built the village and included cisterns to collect rain and provide water.
The Afkula Monastery was also built to the west of the village around 3 km away. There has been a resurgence of Turkish interest in the village in recent years with a number of good restaurants offering international cuisine as well as traditional Turkish food, some of which offer a return collection service and are accessible by Taxi. The views and scenery are excellent and well worth the trip of around 10 minutes through the forest. Kaya has been declared a historical monument and we would advise you not to miss this on your visit to this area. It is a must!
Uzumlu village; (grape village) is 18 kilometres from Fethiye, nestled in foothills. Here the quality variates of grapes are still grown, as the name of the village suggests. On looms found in most homes, a local pure cotton material known as Dastar is woven by the village women. Table clothes and curtains are among the finished products available.
Marmaris; is not for the faint of heart! It is a large resort with many hotels and complexes with a busy holiday feel and bustling night life. If you want a traditional Turkish holiday this may not be the place to be, but a jewel in the crown is the old harbour and castle with its traditional bars cafes and narrow streets and picturesque water front. The beaches here will be the highlight of your holiday, with many public and untouched ones in town and the surrounding areas. Marmaris caters for all tastes, busy night life, sailing, watersports, night cruises, beaches, bar street and almost any activity you can think of, if you want to party - it is here!
Dalyan; is a special and unique town which is overlooked by ancient Lycian Rock Tombs which are the last resting places of the Kings of Kaunos. The canal goes through the village on its way from Koycegiz Lake to the beach, so this is a great place to take a boat trip to one of the ancient sites. Dalyan offers something for everyone whilst maintaining a wonderful friendly atmosphere. The 7 Km long Iztuzu beach is protected, for it is here that the endangered Loggerhead Turtles lay their eggs and can be reached by the Dalyan Canal or minibus. Sarigerme beach and Ekincik bay are both well worth visiting and are popular trips from Dalyan.
Kalkan; is a beautiful town of character from the Ottomen era, once a Greek fishing village called Kalamaki it is now a upmarket resort offering its visitors a wonderful experience of Turkish hospitality. The waterfront has a selection of restaurants and bars to relax and watch the boats in the harbour or you can shop in one of the many shops selling local crafts and designer clothing. There is a pebbly public beach just beyond the harbour with a blue water flag! Kaputas beach is a lovely sandy cove back dropped by a striking mountain gorge.
Patara beach; is a majestic 12 Km sand and dune waterfront in a designated national park area, both can be accessed by Dolmus from the centre in about ten minutes. If you stay in Kalkan then the beach clubs with ther paved platform terraces and sea ladders can be accessed by water taxi. Kalkan night life bustles with activity with tavernas and international restaurants aplenty in the winding streets and many excellent bars and shops.
Kas; has a charm that comes from its unhurried ambience and because it is further away from Dalaman airport it gets fewer visitors than the resorts further up the coast. Originally a local fishing village, Kas has lost none of its charm and here ruins of the ancient town of Antiphellus mix with the more modern buildings to create a unique and wonderful atmosphere. Just 2km away across the water to the South is the Greek island of Megisti (Kastellorizo) which explains why this resort has a Greek feel about it and even the Greek nationals from the Island come over to the Turkish mainland to do there shopping here and visit the medical centres. There are two beaches here, known as big and little pebble and they have many swimming platforms along the coast for a great swimming experience. A great choice of mouth watering Turkish restaurants awaits even the most demanding gastronome, with its cuisine ranked among the top five in the world. You will also find a myriad of bars and tavernas and for a little adventure, try the water taxi to Limanagsi beach and eat at the restaurant there.
