Aroma Beach Club, Çalış – An Easy Chillout Zone

It's been a summer of beaches, this year. New businesses to explore, old favourites to revisit. Around the peninsula in Fethiye, we've been to Aksazlar and JJ Beach Park at Büyük Boncuklu. Across the water, we've sailed to Şövalye Island to visit Şövalye Adası Beach & Restaurant. And in Çalış … [Read more...]

A Taster Of Island Life At Şövalye Adası Restaurant and Beach

Articles like this one are always tough. The type of post where you just want to show the beauty of somewhere with photo after photo. But, in the end, you've got to get a bit ruthless and choose the necessary ones. Those that tell the story. And this is the story of our little trip over to Fethiye's … [Read more...]

Şehit Fethi Bey Parkı, Fethiye – One Not To Miss

Every great town deserves a great park. And now, after much anticipation, our town of Fethiye can proudly boast that facility. Şehit Fethi Bey Parkı was opened on 26th July 2018 and it's a park that offers something for everyone; adults and kids alike. There's a bit of quirkiness about it which … [Read more...]

JJ Beach Park At Büyük Boncuklu Bay, Fethiye – A Welcome Addition To The Peninsula

Once upon a time, there was a bay in Fethiye. It was a beautiful bay; perfect shape when viewed from on high as you walked around the Fethiye peninsula. Rocky promontory, encroaching pine forest, crystal clear water, horseshoe bay. Every time we looked down on Büyük Boncuklu Bay, it just looked so … [Read more...]

A Hike From Ovacık To Faralya Along The Lycian Way

It was a weekend of doing something new and doing activities we'd been meaning to repeat for some time but never got around to. The 'something new,' was eating lunch at Izela in the village of Kayaköy. The repeated activities were additions to our hiking and walking in Fethiye page. We walked to … [Read more...]

A Short Walk From Kayaköy To Cold Water Bay – It’s Worth Your Effort

We've been running a lot over winter - strange how it pushes other loves in your life into the background without you noticing. We were training for the Istanbul 10k in November and then the Runatolia event at the beginning of March in Antalya. Before we knew it, winter was done with and we hadn't … [Read more...]

Weekending At Full Moon Camp, Kabak – Life’s Good

Life's little traditions. For my birthday, we always go to Antalya. It's round about the same time as Runatolia so that tradition has happened by default. For Barry's birthday, it's an escape to Kabak. Only a dolmuş ride away but an amazing journey along the mountain road and a true feeling of … [Read more...]

Help Beach & Yacht Club, Fethiye – Love It!

What a great day we had! We need to tell you that there's yet another new addition to the Fethiye beach scene and, as with all newcomers, we were excited and just had to go and check it out. But we had to bide our time. Mixed weather since their opening day didn't really make for ideal beachy … [Read more...]

Sultan’s Aqua City, Çalış – A Big Splash

Sultan's Aqua City in Çalış is what we're all about for today's post. Because, you see, we're at that time of year again. The trickle begins around January and then picks up pace during the spring. I'm talking about those messages you get from friends when you live in another country; especially in … [Read more...]

Ölüdeniz Water World Aquapark – A Fun-Packed Day For All

Aqua parks: what's your take on them? We've just been reading some reviews of Ölüdeniz Water World Aquapark. One person wrote, "Who doesn't love an aqua park?" Errm, is it just me, then, who looks up at water slides and gets an uneasy queasy feeling? There's a bit of longing there, too, of … [Read more...]
