Fethiye is a Turkish town surrounded by an expansive turquoise coast, which tells the history of Roman and Christian past through its scattered vestiges lying within its folds. Fethiye will bewitch you with its sheer beauty, splendour and ancient setup. Once a quaint fishing village, Fethiye’s image today stands for Turkey’s tourism with a range of beaches along the hillside, an Old Town and ruins which recreate the glory of Roman Era. Situated in Lycia, on the coast of Mediterranean, a visit to Fethiye will uncover the stony layers of Telmessos, an ancient world.
A gateway to Oludeniz, an emblematic lagoon which delineates the beauty of Turkey, Fethiye revels in its natural coastal charm. The nearby Kayakoy will unearth the lives of people, who left the village deserted, waiting to be resurrected by travellers. In terms of its culture, its civilization, its tourism and its nature, Fethiye is a storyteller of its own kind.
Severely hit by an earthquake in 1958, the town stands for resilience as most of it has been rebuild and modernised. However, the city keeps its historic self abreast and thus emanates a seductive mystery which adds a unique colour to its tourism.
