Why is Fethiye such a popular holiday destination?
We love Fethiye and we’re not alone! Here are four reasons why it’s a magnet for tourists and foreign residents alike.
Fethiye really does offer the best of all worlds. Its golf valley is a haven of peace and stunning surroundings. There are supermarkets, bars, restaurants and parks, dotted around the quiet streets. Yet despite the peaceful and relaxing environment, it is within easy reach of amazing nightlife and gastronomy.
It is just a short transfer ride down the hill into the Saklikent Gorge, with its legendary nightlife and designer shops. Just 200 kilometres away is the beautiful town of Antalya, with its Old Town, amazing restaurants and shops and long seafront promenade. To the west is the charming Gocek with its more traditional Turkish feel and long boulevard with playgrounds and pavement cafes.
Fethiye is known as the golf valley, due to the large concentration of golf courses running down the centre of the area. Popular courses include Sarigerme, Side, Manavgat, Antalya and Lara Beach. There are many holiday rental villas and apartments overlooking the beautifully tended fairways, which are perfect for golfers. Staying in Fethiye also gives you easy access to the golfing hotspots of Belek and Alanya, so you’re spoilt for choice! Book a golf transfer
Bars and restaurants
Despite being a peaceful, largely residential area, Fethiye has a lot to offer. It has been sensitively developed to ensure that each residential area is well served by local eateries, bars and shops. This means that you are almost always within walking distance of great food and nice places to hang out. The golf courses all have excellent clubhouses, so they are a good choice. We also recommend a visit to Akyaka, which has a number of highly rated bars and restaurants in a lovely village style setting. Marmaris Gardens is another area with great restaurants and late night bars, with lots of cool options within walking distance of many lovely holiday rentals. Last but not least is Dalyan, the most popular bar, café, restaurant and late night hotspot in Fethiye. A trip to the area wouldn’t be complete without stopping in here!
Nearby Fethiye, Oludeniz, Antalya and Belek are all great gourmet destinations too. If there’s a restaurant you want to visit, which isn’t walking distance away, count on Antalya Vip Shuttles’ restaurant transfers. This is the easiest way to travel and enjoy a wonderful culinary experience.
Shopping in Fethiye centres around the Centro Plaza shopping centre by the bullring. Centro Plaza boasts some lovely boutiques with fashion and accessories, as well as hairdressers and beauticians, a supermarket, bank and much more. On Saturday mornings, the whole road from Central Plaza down towards Dalyan is transformed into one of the Turkish Riviera’s biggest flea markets. Over 120 stalls line the road selling antiques, furniture, art, clothes, spices and more. Go early for the best choice and bargains!
Of course, if you’re staying in Fethiye you’re also in easy reach of the retail paradise which is Oludeniz. There is a shopping centre and the huge department store. It has a daily market in the summer, not to mention the marina lined with designer stores.
