Things to do
Babadag Mountain towering above Oludeniz on the Southwest coast of Turkey is a geological marvel with incredible thermals and ideal conditions which makes it the best site in Europe for paragliders. This tandem paragliding experience gives you the perfect chance to enjoy your flight leaving the technicalities to your experienced pilot. Picture yourself comfortably seated, gracefully gliding above the scenic mountainside and lagoon, feeling the light breeze on your face taking in the breathtaking view of Oludeniz beach. From the perfect take off sites close to the 1960 m summit of Babadag Mountain, your flight will take you over the ridges with a bird eye view of the white stretched beach and the famous lagoon. After a 30 – 45 minute flight, you will smoothly land close to the beach.
Daily boat trips offer a great day out including excellent swimming stops, anchoring near an old port, by an island or at the entrance to a sea-cave. Book a day trip and lazily cruise the coastline stopping occasionally for a dip in the clear waters of a local bay. Prices are very reasonable and include lunch with a choice of meat or fish. Most boats leave about 10:30 am to return late afternoon.
There are several possibilities:
*5 Island Boat Trip – leaves from Oludeniz Beach
*12 Island Boat Trip – leaves from Fethiye Harbour
*Moonlight Boat Trip – depends upon the moon
Fethiye’s Tuesday market is a traditional market scattered under canvas tents located around a wide canal that runs into the sea. It is the largest market in the area and it is one of the most visited tourist attractions of Fethiye. It has many different produce and products for sale, everything from fresh fruit and vegetable stalls to clothing, shoes, handbags, textiles and silver etc.
Turkish baths (Hamam) are a major part of the culture which are designed to cleanse the body and relax the mind. This unique experience will leave you with a feeling of relaxation and renewal.
Trip to Rhodes
Why not have breakfast in Turkey and lunch in Greece? The Island of Rhodes is just 55 sea-miles off the coast. During the season ferry boat services run from Fethiye and Marmaris. You can buy a day return or an open return ticket. A day trip allows you a 4-5 hour stay on Rhodes Island. Rhodes is well worth a visit. The town itself has fine old medieval buildings, a good market place plus excellent restaurants.
