AREA INFORMATION

FETHIYE

The popular resort of Fethiye, 135 km southeast of Marmaris, boasts an important marina at the head of a beautiful bay strewn with islands. A hill crowned by the ruins of the crusader fortress built by the Knights of Rhodes overlooks the little port 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. Fethiye is a local harbour town. The town is open all year round and has become very popular over the last ten years with the British people so there is already a community of ex-pats here. There is also a very Turkish feel to Fethiye as most of the locals have lived here all their lives so it really is a case of East meets West. There are plenty of shops, supermarkets, restaurants and bars to choose from in Fethiye. Some of the bars and tea houses are situated alongside the harbour and its not unheard of for the Turkish and British people alike to sit and while away the hours, over drinks, playing board games and cards or just chatting whilst taking in the fantastic views of the Taurus Mountains, which in the winter months have snow on the peaks.

CALIS

Ten minutes drive from Fethiye (or you can take a boat Dolmus in the summer months) is the beach resort of Calis. Calis is a quieter resort but it still has its fair share of restaurants, shops and bars, the long beach is a favourite with holidaymakers because it doesn't get too crowded and there is a constant sea breeze. The famous 'Caretta Turtles' come to this beach to lay their eggs so if you keep your eyes peeled you may catch sight of one.

HISARONU

Drive from Fethiye and you reach the charming hill resort of Hisaronu (it means 'Front of the Castle', and refers to a local ruin). In recent years the resort has become very popular with British visitors, and the shops, restaurants, and bars cater extensively for your needs. An ideal place for walkers, visit the nearby deserted village, 'ghost town' of Kayakoy, or the secluded bays and coves, reached by the winding forest paths. A short ride takes you to the beautiful beach resort of Oludeniz.

OLUDENIZ

If you've ever been into a travel agents offering holidays to Turkey then you've probably seen pictures of Oludeniz. The lagoon features on a multitude of posters, postcards and brochure pages. It's not surprising as the characteristic shape of the coastline here has resulted in a unique stretch of glorious beach and the inevitable development of the little village has been fairly restrained. Ovacik is an extension of Hisaronu, a village set in the mountains, it is also a very popular tourist resort in the summer months. It is a ten minute drive away from the large town of Fethiye. All the properties are set in the Mountains so you can be sure of waking to picturesque views of the nearby hills and mountains. Mount Babadaga (Father Mountain) the second largest mountain in the area is situated here and is very popular with paragliders from all over the world. The road to Belcegiz Bay takes you through the mountains where cozy guest houses cater to those seeking mountain scenery. Ocakkoy is the mountain village that is a must see, stay in one of the lovely guest houses, and enjoy the numerous trekking possibilities. Hisaronu, also in the mountains, has very nice hotels. 4 km from Hisaronu, Kayakoy is a picturesque ghost town of old houses and churches - all empty. Explore the bay and the beautiful Blue Lagoon, Olu Deniz, where the calm, crystal clear water is ideal for swimming and other water sports. The Blue Lagoon is one of the best places in the world to do absolutely nothing except soak up the sun amid stunning natural surroundings. At Mt. Baba (1,969 m), you can paraglide into the Blue Lagoon. For those who prefer accommodation facilities, Belcegiz beach is recommended. Intoxicating scenery surrounds Kidirak's beach and shady park. On Gemiler Island (St Nicholas's Island), Byzantine ruins lie tucked among the pines. South of Kidirak beach, Koturumsu Bay is reachable only by boat. Beyond the idyllic beach, a forest, waterfalls and a valley filled with hundreds of varieties of butterflies await the explorer. High in the mountains above Fethiye rushing torrents cut a narrow gorge through the mountains, creating Saklikent (Hidden City).

ICMELER

Near Marmaris at Icmeler, the hazy mountains of the interior slope down to sandy beaches. Under blue skies, the clear sea is ideal for all types of water sports. Many find this area so irresistible that they stay longer than originally planned and there are some excellent accommodations here, in which you can prolong your contact with nature. As you drive down from the high mountains into the village of Turunc, the scene opens out onto the spectacular blue waters beyond the natural harbour. The village itself is small and scattered around the bay: Most of the restaurants border the beach. A few bars and restaurants farther back from the water's edge offer fresh fish and superb views. Kumlubuk, a turquoise paradise, lies on the southern side of the bay. On the northern side, above the water, stands the ancient Rhodian city of Amos. Loryma, at the tip of the Bozburun Peninsula, where the ruins of the ancient harbour and castle remain, can only be reached by boat. Natural quiet bays and scattered islands punctuate the northern shore of the peninsula, ideal for those who want to get away from it all.

MARMARIS

Chic, cosmopolitan Marmaris is an unobtrusive blend of old and new and the natural enviroment around the town remains unspoilt. Situated where the Mediterranean meets the Agean, this beautiful resort lies deep in the valley beside a superb natural harbour. The shore line is edged with green pine forests and contrasting pink oleanders, stretching almost to the clear sparkling waters edge. According to legend, the area was named when Suleyman the Magnificent, not finding the castle here to his liking, was heard to mutter "Mirari as" (hang the Architect) later corrupted to Marmaris. Today the 16th Century Ottoman castle is surrounded by the old towns narrow streets which make up the colorful bazaar. Leather goods copper and jewellery are the best buys and are of a very high quality. Marmaris has a distinctive Riviera feel, with fantastic and dramatic scenery, the size and sheer variety of this exciting, friendly town shows why Turkey has been attracting visitors for thousands of years.

TURUNC

Like all others in the area, Turunc has been a continuous settlement from Hellen to Byzantine times. Long after the Byzantine times we are said that the first settlers were the people known as yoruks, who came down from the Toros Mountains to the village of Osmaniye. Unavoidable sources of life for the nomed are flocks, agriculture, thyme, bay leaf, garden sage and carob. A great contagion taught the old settlers to know the sea. While a great percentage of the population moved down the shore, the rest settled in the area where now named Dereozu Mahallesi. Sea life rapidly changed the habits of the people of Turunc. The alternatives that the sea has offered increased the diversity of the resources, and fishing became way of living. However, Turunc is a holiday centre facilities ranging from pensions to luxury hotels and shopping centres. Its climate enables you to swim 7 months a year (April-October). You can join tours like trekking, jogging, scuba. Of course if you like you can do these activities through out the year, because the coldest day is Turunc is not less than 15 - 20 C. Still in the hottest days (between June and September) cool breezes coming from behind the hills in the west allows you to keep cool. The nearness of Turunc to the neighboring centres provides you with easy transportation.
