Mostly visited touristic town,having the fantastic Oludeniz and Calis beaches Fethiye is the meeting point of Aegean Sea and Mediterranean Sea.
With an excellent marina and living night life Fethiye provides you unforgettable holidays for ever.
The town also serves as an excellent base for touring the inland country-side, and is probably the only city in the world where you’ll find sarcophagus in the streets.
These pre-Roman Lycian relics are especially spectacular when floodlit at night. The town has a population of around 80,000 but the population increases dramatically during the high season, from April to end of October, when off-shore residents spend their summers at their second homes.
In the last ten years Fethiye has become a magnet for British citizens. Apart from its climate and natural beauty, the Britons are attracted by its less expensive lifestyle and the hospitality of the local people.
The British population in Turkey is between 34,000 and 38,000. As a result of the large British population and the high numbers of Britons going there for holiday, Fethiye-Öludeniz was chosen as the best tourismcentre in the world by The Times and The Guardian newspapers in 2007.
Over 7,000 British citizens permanently live in Fethiye, while approximately 600,000 British tourists visit the town every summer.
The Fethiye Museum, which is very rich in ancient and more recent artifacts, displays and testifies to the successive chain of civilizations that existed in the area, starting with the ancient Lycians.
