When the sunny weather approaches, a beach vacation is a must-have for many families, couples and friends on their trip. With its countless beaches, Turkey naturally invites young and old to spend relaxing moments here and to enjoy the opportunity to simply cool off in the sea. But that doesn’t have to be on overcrowded beaches, where the small province of Fethiye in the south-west of the country is a small insider tip among travelers and where mass tourism is not to be found. Enjoy the cool water of the sea at pleasant temperatures, enjoy a Turkish tea in between or go to the kebab customer next to the sights? This is possible here in peace without much stress thanks to a pleasant tourism.
The turquoise blue sea in front of Fethiye invites you to relax
Incredible rock tombs are noticeable in this province and adorn the natural harbor in the middle of the Turkish Riviera. Here in Turkey the turquoise blue sea waits for the vacationers to relax on the sandy beach in clear sunshine, to enjoy a cool breeze of the wind and to savor the cooling in the refreshing sea. It is immediately noticeable that the beach holiday here does not seem as crowded as in the rest of the country, because the small province with its 145,000 inhabitants has apparently not yet got around. But that is exactly the charm of the small town in the south-west of the country on the Mediterranean, where relaxation for young and old comes naturally. As early as spring, the climatic conditions are excellent for a holiday trip to the small province, whose natural beauty also knows how to inspire with its local sights. At the port, however, you are welcome to see which ships are coming here. But don’t worry, there are hardly any major tourist cruises here, as they focus on more well-known destinations within the country. So here you have mostly peace and quiet and yet the harbor is the focal point of many residents, as fresh things are drawn ashore here and the naturalness is simply worth a view.
There are also attractions in the province
Of course, the sea alone is worth a trip for many travelers, young and old. But getting to know the area a little and looking at all the local attractions that are worth seeing doesn’t hurt. After all, the memories are filled with a lot of input and there may be a lot to tell. The white mosque, for example, is such an attractive sight that you can visit. While the port is the center of the small province and the rock tombs are the sight that attracts most tourists to the small town. They are meanwhile also known in the rest of Turkey. Meanwhile, there is a local attraction from the 15th century called the Johanniterruine. The ruins of the Hellenistic Theater are also another addition to the list of local attractions that fill the beach vacation with incredible memories so as to never forget this small province.
Of course, the country has a number of well-known cities and sights to offer. But it is well known that the little ones count. Because, in addition to the beach holiday, they also round off the fascination for provinces and show where all the attractive sights and travel destinations are hidden undiscovered by mass tourism. This is exactly where families with children, older travelers, young couples or friends simply want to relax in peace, explore the surroundings a little and enjoy the weather with the fresh cooling in the sea. And that is exactly what is possible in Fethiye. A travel destination that is not known to every tourist and is therefore absolutely recommendable.
