Fethiye

— 4 nights
A prosperous hub of tourism on the Mediterranean coastline, Fethiye boasts one of Turkey's finest natural harbors.
Escape the urban bustle at Oludeniz PlajI and Dalyan Special Environmental Protection Area. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Old Town and Tlos. Change things up with a short trip to Iztuzu Beach 2 in Dalyan (about 1h 15 min away). There's still lots to do: hike along The Lycian Way, take in breathtaking views at Saklikent Milli Parki, look for gifts at Can BaharatcIlIk Cihan Zor, and take an in-depth tour of Fethiye Museum.
