Fethiye

With huge appeal for British citizens, Fethiye is one of Turkey’s well-known coastal resorts. Its’ Mediterranean climate, fine natural harbour, wonderful beaches and pine forests have made it extremely popular over the last ten years. With a fascinating history and multiple tourist hot-spots, here is our Turkish resort guide to Fethiye.

Let’s talk about the weather first of all. Fethiye has a gorgeous Mediterranean climate. You’ll enjoy long, hot, dry summers (with a daytime average of 34°C (93°F)) and cool, rainy winters averaging 16°C (61°F).

Fethiye has become almost an umbrella term for several smaller areas, each with their own style. These include Ölüdeniz, Ovacik and Hisaronu.

In this Turkish resort guide to Fethiye, we have to mention the harbour.

Fethiye has one of the finest natural harbours in the entire region. It is nestled to the south of a delightful bay. An earthquake levelled Fethiye back in 1958, sparing only the remains of the ancient city of Telmessos. Some 60 years later the town is yet again a thriving hub for the region. It is a major focus for yacht cruises, a season business which is busy with tourists from Easter to October.

Furthermore, the town makes a great base for exploring the coastline and visiting some lovely seaside and coastal resorts and villages.

The area round Fethiye has developed significantly, but the natural barrier of dense pine forests restricts building. With much of the area protected, Fethiye has the freedom to improve but not expand.

For individuals or investors looking to buy property in Turkey, Fethiye offers some of the most affordable – but in some cases, the most luxurious – property available along the coast.

You might be searching for a seafront villa with incredible views and access to the beaches, or a compact apartment you can lock-up-and-leave during your stays here. Alternatively, you might be looking to make an investment and benefit from the very long and profitable rental season. Whatever your project, Fethiye and its surrounds will probably have something to suit.
