What to see and do on a Holiday to Fethiye
In ancient times, Fethiye was called Telmessos, and was an important commercial centre and a strategic port. Visitors on a holiday to Fethiye can still see remnants of the past scattered throughout the town, such as the fascinating Lycian sarcophagi, one of which lies in the middle of one of the city roads. Head to the cliffs above the town and you can see mysterious looking Lycian tombs carved directly into the rocks.
Fethiye is also a great place for outdoor activities. The marina is a great jumping off point for boat trips to the islands in the bay. The trips include stops at deserted beaches and small coves where you can do some swimming and snorkelling to see colourful fish, octopuses, and turtles. Most tours also include a barbecue lunch. For hikers, Fethiye is where you can find the beginning of the Lycian Way, a 500 kilometres trail along the coast and through forests that stretches all the way to Antalya.
For an interesting day out, make your way to the abandoned village of Kayakoy. Just eight kilometres from Fethiye, this eerie village was once the home of many Orthodox Greek craftsmen. After the Greco-Turkish War in 1923, the residents of the village left, leaving the houses and churches open to the elements. Today, visitors can explore the two empty Orthodox churches over 500 Greek-style houses spread out over the hills.
