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.

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.
