Up until a couple of years ago, locals and tourists in the Çalış area who were so inclined as to take a stroll along Çalış Beach were able to do so by way a steeply arched bridge crossing the canal.

Fethiye: Sundials At The Sundial Hotel

When we left Fethiye for Italy a couple of weeks back, the weather was definitely on the up and spring was in the air.

Fethiye Hotels Along The Marina

Since we started this blog, we've been on various strolls along the Karagözler in Fethiye and written about how all the hotels seem to be upping their game and having major face lifts.
