A Mediterranean city that serves as the ideal jumping-off point for the rest of the Turquoise Coast region.

Perched on the perfect blue of the Mediterranean and under the shadow of the mountain Babadag, the seaside city of Fethiye is often the main entry point for visitors to the stunning southwest coast of Turkey. The modern style and energy of the city coexist side-by-side with traces of the deep history that permeates the region, including Lycian stone tombs that are still visible within city limits, and the lush nature of the Turkish Riviera. In the spring and summer, flowers are constantly in bloom and the sun shines relentlessly, sparkling off the water. While the center of the city can be busy, farther out are quieter areas with easier access to nature. Calis Beach is a popular area within Fethiye to experience the sea.
Route for Fethiye tour
Some of the best beaches, ruins, and nature lie just outside of Fethiye, with the deep navy Blue Lagoon of Oludeniz and the ghost town of Kayakoy easily accessible from the center of the city. The beginning of The Lycian Way, a 30-day walking route along the Turquoise Coast, also starts just outside of Fethiye, for visitors who want to explore the area on foot.
