The west coast of Turkey is littered with fantastic beach destinations with crystal clear waters and stunning mountain backdrops. The city of Fethiye is in amongst them with its stunning harbour, array of restaurants and tombs hidden in the cliffs that loom over it.
It is a fantastic place to spend some time relaxing, eating nice food and taking a break if you’re backpacking around Turkey. You could easily keep yourself busy wandering the streets, stopping for coffee and people watching, but it’s also an excellent base to head out on visits to other places. Beautiful beaches are just a short bus ride away, namely the famous Oludeniz, where paragliding is a must if you want to enjoy the horseshoe bay and crystal clear waters from above. You can also set out on tours to the nearby islands which also have their own allure reminiscent of Thai islands like Ko Phi Phi.
However, i found myself just strolling along the harbour, enjoying the boats, the food and the incredible views like the sunset below:
