A tranquil city by the Aegean Sea, Fethiye is well worth a visit. Buy spices in the bazaar, catch some rays on one of its Blue Flag beaches or enjoy mountain walks where you’ll find Lycian ruins and a Unesco World Heritage Site. Fethiye is one of the quieter coastal towns in Turkey and the places to stay can be just as low-key. Picture villas in leafy gardens and self-contained apartments that are a little kinder on your wallet – all bookable with Culture Trip.
