The area of Çalis is just 45 minutes drive from Dalaman airport. Çalis is a small but growing coastal town conveniently located just 5km from Fethiye which appeals to those looking for a relaxing beach holiday. For the more energetic there is now a new promenade linking Calis & Fethiye which takes approximately 25 minutes to walk.

Set on a n inlet protected by 12 islands, Çalis has a long sand and shingle beach which is safe for children . In late August and early September you can also see some of the loggerhead turtles come ashore to lay their eggs.

There is always a refreshing breeze, even in the hottest summer months and stunning s unsets over the bay. There is a weekly market every Sunday where local produce, clothes and souvenirs can be bought.

  Ölüdeniz
 

Ölüdeniz, the Blue Lagoon - Once a quiet deserted beach, Ölüdeniz has become one of the most photographed beaches in the world. The crystal clear waters are enclosed by a headland forming a natural lagoon. The beach lies at the foot of the towering Babadag mountain at 1905 m etres high, from which paragliders soar through the air landing on the beach. Ölüdeniz is easily accessible from Fethiye by minibus or taxi. There is a diverse range of hotels, shops , cafes, bars and restaurants all within walking distance of the beach.

The lagoon area is classed and protected as a national park and a small entrance fee is charged if you wish to enter. On the way to the lagoon to your right are the Jandarma Station (local Police) and the PTT (Post Office).

Inside the beachside lagoon you will find snack bars along with sunbeds, parasols and pedalos to hire.

  Kaya Köyü (Ghost Village)
 

Located 7 kms from Fethiye, this beautiful village also known as the ' Ghost Village ' was once a thriving community of Turkish and Greek nationals living side by side. After the war of independence in the 1920's the Greeks living in Turkey were forced to move back to Greece . As there were far more Ottoman Greeks than Greek Muslims, so many of the towns vacated were left unoccupied after the exchange of population. Once a town of 2000 stone houses Kayaköy is famous for its deserted houses. It is a remarkable experience to wander around the houses and the churches with their beautiful frescoes.

There are several places for lunch and refreshments. We recommend you sample the traditional kebap houses, their speciality being tandir (lamb slow cooked in a clay oven), or barbeque in your very own tree house!

  Saklıkent
 

This beautiful gorge is only a 45 minute drive from Fethiye. Saklikent is the home of the 3rd largest Kanyon in the world. There is a small entrance fee to walk through the Kanyon which spans 14km in total, and for those less energetic there are riverside refreshment areas just 500m inside.

It is a perfect refuge from the hot weather with the steep sides providing shade from the sunand the waters running through the gorge are ice cold and extremely refreshing.

To the front of the gorge are a number of riverside restaurants where you can sit on one of the pontoons over the river and have a leisurely lunch of fresh trout from the nearby trout farms. There is also the opportunity of river rafting which can be arranged during your visit.

  Patara Beach
 

Just 40 minutes drive from Fethiye is one of Turkeys best beaches, boasting 22km of pure sand. Patara is a national park area so an entrance fee is payable but well worth it for viewing the beach along with the ancient ruins at the entrance to the beach area. Also a spot for turtles in September.

On the beach area you will find sunbeds & parasols for hire and there is a refreshment area providing drinks & snacks.

We would recommend a high factor sun cream as the breeze at Patara whilst providing respite from the sun can be very deceptive. Also please take care with children and non-swimmers as there is also a strong underlying current at Patara.

  Kalkan
 

Situated 1 hrs drive from Fethiye, Kalkan is a lovely small hilltop town that overlooks a tiny bay full of traditional white washed houses. Narrow winding streets lined with souvenir shops lead down to a charming marina with a selection of local bars, sea food and traditional meditteranean restaurants.

Kalkan has a compact pebble beach and the town has man-made platforms for launching yourself into the sapphire waters. Otherwise, a bus or hire car will get you to Kaputas and Patara, the two breathtaking sandy beaches close by.

Kalkan is the prettiest of the small resorts along the south coast and was originally a fishing village but its smart marina now houses glamorous yachts alongside the fishing boats. The town is still relatively uncommercialised, with its pretty cobbled streets offering bazaar-type shops, inviting restaurants and a varied nightlife for the more discerning visitor, and is an excellent base for exploring the surrounding coast. The Guardian newspaper chose Kalkan as the most romantic town in Europe.

  Sarıgerme
 

Almost unheard of until last year Sarigerme is a small town situated on the coast just 12 km away from Dalaman airport. The resort boasts breathtaking scenery and is a peaceful yet traditional retreat. The beach is one of the most beautiful in Turkey with golden sand fringed with pine trees, fantastic views and a lovely sea breeze most of the summer.

The town of Sarigerme is set 800m back from the beach. The town is set up for tourism with the main street been lined with shops, bars, restaurants & boutiques.

There is currently a golf course in construction right between the beach and the town which is the first in the area. Also the Turkish government has allocated a massive budget to develop and promote the area of Sarigerme, making it an exclusive tourist destination with the potential for great property investment returns.

  Gocek
 

GÖCEK has long been a desirable destination for both Turkish and foreign yachtsmen, as well as a favorite stopover for jet-setters and celebrities alike. This paradisiacal village is less than half an hours drive by car from Dalaman International Airport

Set at the northwest end of the Gulf of Fethiye , Göcek is blessed with magnificent scenery. Backed by beautiful mountains and substantial pine forests it looks out over the Twelve Islands , which provide shelter for Göcek's almost circular bay that has made the village such a perfect, natural harbor. Lured by such perfection, the yachting community has long made Göcek a favourite , and it is also a popular stop for gullet cruises.

Göcek's has an impressive range of facilities for a place that remains so blissfully unspoiled: there are only a handful of small hotels and pensions, yet all along the wide, landscaped promenade that fringes the quayside, there are plenty of eateries, from simple cafes to excellent restaurants specializing in delicious fresh fish. In the back streets and around the old village square by the mosque, there is a surprising array of interesting craft shops. The tastefully landscaped waterfront is a lovely place to sip a cool drink and watch the yachts sailing to and fro.
