Where To Go in Fethiye, Turkey

While writing this article, I hang out with Simay at Starbucks in Eskisehir, Turkey. My friend Ben Harris (well known as Yemanyo) asked me for some directions for the best places in Fethiye, Turkey. I've been hanging out here for a while, so my friends suspect that I'm the best source for recommendations. I'm not really, haha.

It's difficult for me to remember the name of places because of the language, and I'm pretty lazy to go back to my Instagram stories and make a resume.  

Simay told me that she had made a resume for my friend Lancer (who is now visiting Kaş). When she sent me her resume, I told her, "babe, this is gold." So I want to credit that this information comes from her, not from me. I pass it to you with the same love that she did to my friend. Enjoy Fethiye. 

Fethiye is a port city and district on Turkey's southwestern Turquoise Coast. It's known for its natural harbor, blue waters, and numerous rock tombs, including the 4th-century B.C. Tomb of Amyntas, carved into a bluff overlooking the city. Near-shore islands are famous for day trips by boat. In the south, the beach at Ölüdeniz is sheltered by a lagoon, and Butterfly Valley is a designated nature reserve. - Google 

As a beach, Kıdrak Beach is the only natural sand beach in Fethiye. Stunning color sea.  
There is Aktaş beach camp on the Faralya village side. It's stony and beautiful camping.  

I can recommend two beaches on the yanıklar village side.  

Karaot Beach.  
It's a huge long beach, mostly windy. You can enter naked when you get to the very end right side.  
Mostly nobody is there except those who live there with their caravans. If there are families, nudity is very scary for Turkish people.  

Günlüklü beach  
Then the beach. There is a fee to enter, but it is one of my favorites. It is a bit far, but a forest of trees is unique to this region. Especially the forest is gorgeous.  

I'm more of a river and cold water person.  

There is Green Valley in Yanıklar village. Beyond the green valley, there are places where you can enter and be naked when you walk through the water.  

by Seydikemer  
Ören Canyon is lovely. Again, cold water.  
There is the ancient city of Tlos on the Seydikemer side. It is very nice to watch the sunset there.  

On the Kayaköy side, there is an old abandoned village.  

As meals  
Kuka Cafe in the city center has international cuisine. Their bowls and pizzas are delicious  
gogo Eatery Falafel bowl and pizzas are delicious.  
Köşe Kahve - corner Coffee is on the corner on the way to Kayaköy, and its sandwiches and desserts are delicious.  
In Romado, they have patisserie and delicious handmade ice creams.  
ChinaGo for Chinese food. 

This is Fethiye. 

In Fethiye, the best thing is renting a car. Because nature beauties are always far away. 

In Kayaköy   
There is a beautiful isolated ancient city. Walking in the sunset time is gorgeous around that place lovely cafes. It is like a mystic ghost city. 

We love to go to "Roots coffee." 

3 beaches I can prefer in Kayaköy  

- darboğaz  
- soğuksu  
- gemiler 

Gemiler is the easiest one. The road is easy. There is a restaurant. 

We have got lots of retreat centers here.   

- Pastoral Valley Eco Farm  
- Yeldeğirmeni Bungalows  
- Baba Kamp  
- Yol Glamping 

An ancient Turkish bath experience "Hamam." You will love it. 

Turkey is colorful, home to many different cultures, beliefs, and views. If you go east, you will go to more Islamic beliefs.  
More closed, more traditional people and stones, mountains, a place where the ground is strong  

- mardin  
- Urfa (Balıklıgöl, Göbeklitepe)  
- Cappadocia  

if you go towards the black sea, the precipitation is too much, and the forest, mountains, and nature are mighty.  
There are beautiful highlands.  

- Artvin  

if you go west, you will feel more like you are in Europe. People are freer. You come across old cities and beaches. And delicious vegetable dishes)  

- Izmir  

(Ephesus ancient city, Şirince, çeşme, karaburun, urla)
