How to Spend 3 Days in Fethiye

How to Spend 3 Days in Fethiye

As well as exploring the Old Town, three days in Fethiye give you plenty of time to cruise the Mediterranean, go hiking in the Saklıkent Gorge, and visit ancient Lycian tombs in Kaunos. Here’s how best to spend three days in Fethiye. 

Day 1: Fethiye and Oulendiz

Fethiye’s Old Town can easily be explored in a morning, which leaves you free to explore the surrounding sights in the afternoon. Discover the remains of ancient Telmessos at the amphitheater; learn more about the city’s history at the Fethiye Museum; and shop for traditional handicrafts and Turkish foods at Fethiye Market, which takes place every Tuesday.

Just south of the city, the small village of Oludeniz is home to a sandy beach that backs onto the Blue Lagoon. Join a stress-free tour to skip the hassle of organizing a rental car; most tours also include a stop at the ghost village of Karakoy, a Greek-Christian village that was abandoned in the 20th century.

Adrenaline junkies won’t be able to resist trying the region’s most daring pursuit—a tandem paragliding flight. Alternatively, watch the paragliders while enjoying a sunset drink at the mountaintop Zirve bar.

Day 2: Cruise the Mediterranean

A cruise around the Bay of Fethiye is a must for travelers in Fethiye for the first time. Cruises give you the chance to escape the crowds on land and most include lunch on board. Opt to sail to Butterfly Valley, a bay surrounded by rugged sea cliffs and so-called for its abundant butterflies, among them the rare tiger butterfly. Alternatively, island-hopping cruises visit up to 12 islands in one day and feature plenty of stops to swim and snorkel in the Mediterranean. If you’re an adventurous travelers, try scuba diving—the Turquoise Coast is home to some of the most popular dive sites in Turkey.

Back in Fethiye, head down to the waterfront where bars, restaurants, and nightclubs keep you entertained until the early hours. 

Day 3: Take a Day Trip

Fethiye is well-placed for exploring Turkey’s Turquoise Coast; day trip options include hiking in the Saklikent Gorge, visiting the coastal resorts of Kas and Kalkan, or catching the ferry to the Greek island of Rhodes.

For a tour that combines history, wildlife, and outdoor adventures, head to the Dalyan River for a river cruise or rafting excursion. Most Dalyan River tours include a visit to nearby Kaunos, famous for the ancient Lycian tombs that are carved into the high cliff-sides. Be sure to visit İztuzu Beach, a sandy spit located at the mouth of the Dalyan River, where you can spot loggerhead (caretta caretta) turtles in their natural environment.
