Now, let’s take a look at the answer to the question of what are the activities to do in Fethiye.
“Fethiye, which is a holiday paradise with its beautiful natural beaches, clear blue sea and ancient ruins, is one of the most beautiful coastal resorts in the Mediterranean. A must for a Fethiye holiday is to go on a boat tour and explore the Fethiye bays.”
Of course, we open the list with Fethiye’s world-famous beach, Ölüdeniz! In Ölüdeniz, which fully corresponds to the definition of a natural wonder where green and blue meet, the seawater is smooth and smooth. You can swim in the turquoise waters as well as do many water sports here. If you have a passion for adrenaline, we can recommend you to go to Babadag and do paragliding.
With its proximity to Ölüdeniz and being the entertainment centre of Fethiye, Hisarönü is one of the indispensable haunts of holidaymakers. Located between Fethiye and Ölüdeniz, Hisarönü and its neighbour Ovacık have become a highly developed region in terms of settlement and accommodation in recent years.
Ölüdeniz, which has been the centre of attention since ancient times, is shown as the most important symbol of Fethiye. The lagoon, which is protected under the status of a national park, attracts great attention due to its aquarium-clear sea and calm atmosphere. While young people have fun with their peers in toys set up near the shore, adults can swim and enjoy the sun.
Butterfly Valley, one of the most popular bays in our country, is surrounded by mountains reaching 350 meters in height. You can reach the Butterfly Valley, which you cannot reach by land, by sea. There are dozens of butterflies in the valley and some species are endemic, so it has been declared a protected area. Another natural wonder that will offer you a visual feast in the Butterfly Valley is the 50-meter-high waterfall pouring into the Mediterranean from the middle of the valley. If you say a camping holiday is for me, we recommend you to camp here and sleep under the stars with the smell of the sea. A point we should remind you before you come is that the beach is pebbled and you should come with slippers so that you can walk comfortably.
After having a perfect Ölüdeniz experience, you can take the boats departing from Belcekiz Beach and start a journey full of joy towards Butterfly Valley. The extremely limited land access to the valley, located at the foot of Babadağ, plays a key role in preserving its naturalness. You can find the opportunity to observe 80 different butterfly species and dozens of epidemic plants in this valley, which is the dream of those who want to swim and camp.
