Grand, new adventures.
Fethiye and Oludeniz
Fethiye has a long promenade on the seafront – at the far end is the Tuesday market which really is quite something with vast fruit and vegetable halls as well as clothing and bric-a-brac. Fethiye also has an interesting old town, Lycian tombs, and what we call the fish market which is more in the centre of the town. This is where you can buy your fresh fish from a selection of stalls located in the centre of the market and then choose from a variety of restaurants surrounding them.
The restaurateur will cook your prawns/seabass/sardines etc. any which way you want, with garlic, herbs etc and serve with a fresh salad, bread and wine if you wish. It’s fabulous if you love fresh fish and very cheap – depending on how much wine/beer you order (booze can be quite expensive in Turkey). Alternatively you can just buy some fresh fish and take it home to cook.
The waters surrounding the small village of Oludeniz are an achingly beautiful gradient of blue. Sapphire meets seafoam green at the shoreline, where stretches of white sand are dotted with leisurely sunbathers. The scenery is even more gorgeous from above—Oludeniz is renowned as one of the world’s top spots for paragliding.
