The waterfront in the heart of Fethiye is a harbour where the boats tie up; there is no beach there but that does not mean the visitors cannot enjoy nearby beaches and indeed can be taken to some in small coves on one of the boats offering day trips or blue voyage Fethiye.
This beach is among the most photographed in the world. Set against a crystal blue sea and cloudless sky it looks stunning. It is not sand but that hardly matters. It closes at night but by day may enjoy sunbathing or watching the paragliders come off from the mountain above, taking quite a time to descend to sea level.
Belcekiz Beach in Oludeniz is likely to be covered in sunbeds. If you sit up and look around, you will see a wonderful environment and the amazing turquoise colour of the sea. Many descriptions of this area use the term ‘Blue Lagoon’, a worthy title.
Calis is just west of Fethiye. There is a long narrow man made beach between the promenade and the sea with plenty of accommodation choices from hotels, apartments, bars to have a drink and restaurants along that promenade. Calis have best sunset.
This is a shingle beach with sunbeds. It is not the best place for a swim as the sea tends to be murky due to the proximity of the shipyard.
Even in the height of summer there are places to escape the crowds. Some of the islands are lovely while this whole coastline is filled with small coves where there may not be anything or anyone around, except perhaps a single anchored boat?
