Fethiye in Turkey is a treasure of the Turkish coast. You will most definitely receive warm welcomes in Fethiye. The town, on the turquoise coast of Turkey has grown from a modest trading port/fishing village and fertile tomato growing area to a rapidly expanding vibrant town and tourist holiday destination which offers many things to many people, from those with an interest in history and nature to those looking for sun, sea and great food. The purpose of this website is simple - to give people visiting the area enough interesting information on things to do so they can hopefully arrive with a few restaurants they really want to try, a tour/excursion or two that having read about here they love the sound of, and a little bit of information about the area and it's rich and varied history. If we achieve that, it means you should have an even better holiday and we would have helped you get more out of a beautiful and enchanting area of Turkey.
We hope this website will give you a small taste and a few 'insider' pointers on most of these subjects, but in reality it is part of the fun to go out and find your own special places and people. Hopefully you can take a few ideas from fethiye.co.uk to get started and add your own discoveries. Please let us know via our contact page of any magical places you find on your Fethiye adventure.
We have included sections on the area and some (interesting!) history of Fethiye, details on some of the many outstanding restaurants, a selection of things to see and excursions available including Fethiye Roman Amphitheatre and Lycian Rock Tombs - and a special section detailing features taken from the UK national press on Fethiye and surrounding areas in this part of Turkey. The information detailed in these sections is by no means exclusive or comprehensive as there are numerous alternatives to those shown. If you are a seasoned visitor to Turkey and would like to see one of your favourites included, use the contact section to suggest further examples for inclusion. Feel free to submit an article of your own if you would like to - if it's good, it's in.
We have also covered areas of interest around the main town of Fethiye - diverse places on the doorstep like Kayakoy, Ovacik, Olu Deniz, Hisaronu and Uzumlu. There are many areas of archaeological and historic interest in and around the Fethiye area, and we have given you some pointers in our Places to Visit section.
We add news and new information regularly. Everything from upcoming events to new restaurants, hotel information and more old photos of the area. All new content is announced on the usual social networking sites, so to receive notifications please add us on Twitter: @fethiyeuk - Facebook: Fethiyecodotuk - Google+: Fethiye Co Uk
