Calis meets Fethiye
Backed by the Taurus Mountain range, Calis Beach is a peaceful spot right next to Fethiye. It’s just a 10-minute drive to the centre of its lively neighbour, but the promenade is more laidback here – it’s the hub of the town and where you’ll find the best shops, bars and restaurants. There are also the stunning sunset views from the sand-and-shingle beach.
At Calis Beach, you get a 4-kilometre stretch of dark sand and shingle. Windsurfing and kite-surfing are the big draws on the watersports front, while children can enjoy the Aqua City waterpark 5 minutes’ walk away. Another option, a 20-minute walk away, is secluded Calis Koca. It comes with 5 kilometres of sand and A-list appeal – it was used as a location in the Bond movie, Skyfall.
Calis Beach is low key when it comes to nightlife. Quiet bars and restaurants attract families and couples who can dine and watch the sunset from seafront venues. A 10-minute drive gets you to the centre of Fethiye where there are coastal nightclubs that play a mix of Turkish and British music ’til 5am. There are more elegant bars in the hills behind Fethiye, about 15 minutes’ drive from Calis Beach.
Tombs and gorges
There are 4th-century tombs built into the mountainside at Fethiye, a 15-minute drive from here. Next door to the tombs is a fortress built by European Crusaders – from below the crumbling tower you can see right across to Fethiye. Or 40 minutes by car gets you to the Saklikent Gorge, a 300-metre deep canyon that stretches for 18 kilometres. You can walk through it on a railed bridge, or wade through the waist-high water.
