Cheap Vacations to Fethiye
Fethiye is a bustling local market town, home to a huge marina but relatively few hotels in comparison to other popular Turkish resorts, Fethiye offers visitors far more of a taste of the “real Turkey” than most tourist resorts. The weather in Fethiye as with most of Turkey is good all year round. The most comfortable time to visit is between the months of May and October with the average temperature sitting around 77oC.
Fethiye is a great town to explore. Head to the waterfront and look on enviously at the luxury yachts lining the marina. For a more low key experience, visit the fishing harbour to see the traditionally painted fishing boats. A short stroll from here is the historic Ottoman Empire town centre, Paspatur, which is now a lively pedestrian shopping centre with masses of shops, restaurants and charming cafes. The vast market that takes place on Tuesdays is home to hundreds of stalls. You can find your usual holiday trinkets and some superb local art alongside stalls of local fruit, veg and wonderful smelling spices.
When the sun sets, the Paspatur area turns into the local Bar Street, with a collection of bars and clubs such as the Ottoman and Car Cemetery Bar offering mainly a cocktail and chill-out experience and rooms with “Nargila” (water pipes) on offer. If chilled out cocktails doesn’t float your boat there are a couple of huge open air clubs with the usual mix of big summer tunes, big drinks and live dancers - Disco Marina, near the yacht harbour, and Yes!
