Cruise to this seaport of lovely surprises

There’s a reason why we schedule a late-night stay in Fethiye. Actually, let’s rephrase that: There are many reasons why we stay here so late, because wow, are there ever a lot of things to do in and around this town.

Marvel at the stone sarcophagii scattered everywhere as you stroll to Paspatur (the old town area of Fethiye) to do some souvenir shopping. Kill two birds with one tomb by hiking up the hill to see the Lycian rock tombs carved into the cliff face. Not only will you get a nice little workout in, but you’ll also be treated to some wonderful views of Fethiye and the bay.

To see even more impressive resting places, go to Dalyan for tombs from 4,000 BC, or Iztuzu Beach, one of the Mediterranean’s main breeding grounds for loggerhead sea turtles. Speaking of beaches, you may also want to pop by Olüdeniz, rated one of the top beaches in the world.

There’s also the nearby ancient Roman cities of Caunos and Kadyanda, the ghost town of Kayakoy—and oh yes, Saklikent Gorge, Fethiye’s 12-island boat trips…See what we mean?!
