Fethiye is for tourist purposes a yachting resort, and has fine beaches not too far off. During a stay in the nineties I just used it to get some rest and see some nearby sights. In March 2011 I stayed for a couple of days to visit Xanthos, Leotoon, Tlos. I strolled through Fethiye itself a bit, but only after the work had been done, and under poor atmospheric conditions like close to sunset, heavily overcast or with s slight drizzle. As a result the pictures I add still do not show the town at its' brightest. For that I would have to return at the height of season. I am afraid I never will, don't like yachting, don't like tourists, don't like crowds. Remember pictures are in no way representative, just all I could grab. I hardly add captions, partly because I just don't know, partly because well, a harbour or ship explain themselves.

Fethiye itself also has some fine Lycian graves hewn from the rocks, and one can from here visit Kayaköy, a village that was almost completely deserted when, after the Turkish War of Independence, as exchanges of citizens took place between Greece and Turkey, many "Greek Turks" fleeing the country. It now is a ghost town, with all the charm that implies. Better not think about the horror that preceded the present status.


FETHİYE


Fethiye, turistik amaçlardan dolayı bir yatçılık merkezi ve çok uzak olmayan hoş sahilleri var. Ayrıca kayalardan yontulmuş, güzel Likya mezarları var. Oradan Kayaköy’e de gidilebilir; Türk Kurtuluş Savaşı’nın ardından, Türkiye ile Yunanistan arasındaki nüfus mübadelesi gerçekleştikten ve Yunanlı Türkler ülkeden ayrıldıktan sonra, bu köy neredeyse tamamen boşalmış. Sahip olduğu sezilen tüm cazibesine rağmen, orası şu anda bir hayalet kasaba. Şimdiki durumunda öne çıkan korkuyu düşünmemek en iyisi.
