Fethiye, the ancient Telmessos of Lycia, is the main town & port in the area. It is one of the unique Turkish resorts enjoying a naturally beautiful location surrounded by mountains with a typically Mediterranean feel. The Fethiye Bay is a very popular spot for yachting holidays in and around the 12 Islands. Paspatur, the old town, is well worth a visit with its nice little shops and narrow streets for pedestrians only. Taking a walk along the sea side promenade and enjoying the sight of wooden gullets and fishing boats whilst having a drink is always a nice memory to take back home
