On the slopes of Mount Mendos, you’ll find a port and market town called Fethiye. It’s one of the country’s most beautiful – and popular – tourist sites. The first step to holiday bliss here is flights to Turkey, available with many airlines and tour operators.
Close to Olu Deniz, Fethiye has a busy marina dotted with fishing boats, Old Turkish Baths and a bazaar, where you can buy beautiful rugs or fragrant spices.
Relax by sunning yourself on one of the nearby beaches, or soak up the local history at any of the ancient ruins scattered around town. Explore the Lycian stone sarcophagi or the Tomb of Amyntas with its Doric temple facade that puts one in mind of Petra in Jordan.
