Lukka Cafe, Restaurant & Bar – Another Taste Bud Tempter Along Çalış Beach

There’s a bit of a back story to the Lukka Bar Restaurant & Cafe scenario, so we guess we should start there, really. You see, Lukka is this bar/restaurant that’s been there, sat at the end of the main stretch of Çalış Beach for quite some time. Five years, actually, when we asked owner, Aydın, […]

Lighthouse Restaurant – Simple & Colourful Dining Along Çalış Beach

Lighthouse Restaurant Pide and Pizza, Çalış Beach – a new one for us (or, at least it was when we first wrote this post). Springtime always sees us trying out new places. Why? Because… The mild winter has meant that Spring has sprung early in Fethiye. And, whenever that happens, it’s nigh on impossible for […]

January 2016 – What Went On In Fethiye

2016 and it’s time for our (roughly) monthly round up of goings on that we’ve noticed around Fethiye. Not official news or anything like that – just our little random updates and musings. In this seemingly topsy turvy crazy world we all seem to be living in at the moment, you’ll be pleased to know that […]

Güven’s Bar & Restaurant – Our Take

Creatures of habit, that’s what we are… We’re always wandering around the Fethiye area trying out places we’ve never been to before – and some we go back to every now and then. And then there are those places where it’s just a given that, in between visits to all those other beaches, bars and […]

April 2015 in Fethiye – Where Did You Go?

Yes, another month has been and gone, and, once more, it’s happened in a complete whirl. All of a sudden, May is upon us! We’ve purposefully delayed our Fethiye update for April because yesterday was Fethiyespor’s final – and immensely crucial – match of the season. We were waiting for the outcome… April was also […]

Calisto Pizza & Beer By The Sea – Don’t Mind If We Do

Çalış Beach in winter always interests us because you get the odd business or two that seem much more lively in the daytime than they do in the busy summer season. Yeah, we know it’s the change in weather and all that but you just get used to seeing quiet day times. Then, all of […]

Lodos On Çalış Beach – We Like Waves

Just in case you go thinking we’ve got a bit of a weather obsession at the moment, we’ve not. Well, not really, anyway. It’s just that, right now, anyone and everyone who lives in coastal areas around Turkish shores is talking about the weather. In our last blogpost about the weather in Fethiye, we were merely […]

Getting Into The Festive Spirit At Çalış Christmas Fair 2014 – Times Are A’Changin’

Over the years, we’ve watched the Çalış Christmas Fair change and grow (and taken many Christmas Fair photos in the process) and yesterday, the rains that had been forecast held off – it even got hot and sunny at one point – and the promenade along Çalış Beach was packed with both stalls and people. […]

Çalış Beach Sunset – Photo Of The Day And A December Update

Yes, this is the photo-of-the-day for December 6th in our December New Year countdown. It’s been a popular one on our Turkey’s For Life Facebook page – don’t we all love a good Çalış Beach sunset. It doesn’t matter how many photos we take of them, no two are the same. Yesterday was really balmy […]

One Thousand – The Number Of Blog Posts On Turkey’s For Life

Wow, yeah! Not sure where to start, really, writing this blog post. This blog post is number 1,000. One thousand posts of ramblings about our life – and a few adventures thrown in here and there – in Turkey. What on earth do we find to talk about, eh? Amazing, really. Thankfully, we don’t need […]
