* The largest island in Fthiye Bay is Tersane Island, also known as Shipyard Island. This bay has a channel 100 meters deep that was used by the Ottoman Navy, hence the name of the shipyard island. There are many bays in the bay area, and in the east there is the Summer Harbor. The western side of the bay is little used due to the strong winds that prevail for most of the year. The ancient ruined city of Telandria is nearby and if you want to stretch your legs this is a great place to do so.

Gemiler Island is an uninhabited island near the city of Fethiye. There are many restaurants and cafes located near the famous ruins, but the owners do not live on the island, but come here every day for tourists. Gemiler is considered the resting place of Saint Nicholas, or what we all now call Santa Claus, who is also the patron saint of sailors. During the early Christian era, it was a very active island with a lot of trade and commerce. This is his home for some Byzantine ruins and the tomb of St. Nicholas. Today the island is a place of pilgrimage as well as a favorite daytime stopover for yachts. The local cuisine is exceptionally delicious and they are located in a beautiful relaxing location with great views. Blue Cruises has an overnight license, but the rest of the island empties at sunset and gets pretty deserted. There are no commercial resupply sites here, so if you need supplies it’s best to sail further or resupply in Fethiye.

Day 2

Day 2 Oludeniz (Dead Sea), Valley of the Butterflies

Oludeniz in Turkish means the Dead Sea, which is due to the calm waters that seem to shine like glass all year round. Oludeniz is a small village in the Fethiye region of Mugla province. This is one of the most visited and popular cruises in Turkey on the turquoise coast in southwestern Turkey. The blue lagoon is fenced off from a pebble beach, and the water is crystal clear, aquamarine and different shades of blue. Behind the city is Mount Babadag, which sets the pace for the paragliding community.

Not far from Fethiye is the Valley of the Butterflies. This valley can only be reached by sea as it is surrounded by the Rocky Mountains. In the summer, and only for a few weeks, the valley fills with butterflies, hence the name. The largest species found here is actually a moth, the Jersey white moth. There is a stream in the valley, so even when this place is devoid of bright colors, it is still a great place to visit. If you want to stay overnight on land, you can do so, but there are strict guidelines for camping that must be followed.

Day 5

Day 5 Kalkan, Kaputash beach

Kalkan is one of the must-see places for boating in Turkey. Just below the Taurus Mountains is the city of Kalkan.

This city has both a small harbor and a thriving olive business, and they produce a special olive soap unique to their city. Because this site is so beautiful, many properties are owned by foreign residents who come here for a few weeks throughout the year. The rest of the time, the property is either empty or rented to visitors through sites such as Airbnb. The views of this city are magnificent, with shimmering colors from the multi-storey terraces on one side and the clear water of the bay shining in the sunlight during the day.

* Between Kas and Kalkan there is a beautiful bay of Kaputash beach. This cove is often featured in national and private tourism advertisements and in online magazines. Here the beauty and the beast meet and stand there, the beach itself is not recommended for families with children, as it is quite deep, and the water, as a rule, is stormy most of the time.

On one of his fishing trips in 1973, he painted a fish on a rock at the entrance to the bay, giving the rock its new name, Fish Rock, now the name of the entire area. This bay is well protected, so the winds do not prevail, and the colors are distinct, and the clear azure water contrasts with the green pines, olive trees and oleanders that inhabit the hillside. The overall effect is enhanced by clear blue skies.
