Life In Fethiye In September – Hello, Autumn

A long, hot summer. A long, hot summer of walks (and running) between Fethiye and Çalış Beach. It was too hot to walk much further.

A Day At Lake Köyceğiz – Time To Chill

In a previous article, we wrote about another day trip from Fethiye; Sarıgerme Beach. Well, if you’re anything like us and you start to feel a bit restless once you’ve finished admiring the beach scenery, you need somewhere to move on to.
