The view is fascinating..
Butterflys and Nature
Butterfly Valley is about 10-15 km east of Oludeniz where highly dense touristic activities located. Only accessable from sea. A rough track (even climbing) connects the valley to the village Faralya 400 m over on the mountains surrounding. Perfect sea, and rock bar at night.
This is the best perserved tomb, and the biggest one. In the evening you can see it well enlightened from Fethiye, it is just behind the downtown. It looks incredible! This was the tomb of a priest, and that is why it's temple shaped.
It's literally the most beautiful beach i have ever been to. The water is still, warm, the beach is sandy and miniature pebbles, there are enormous quantities of pines, pam trees and olives all around, the colours of the sea are amazing...
There are several bars, toilettes, places to rent pedal boats, canoa and water sports cabin, also the beds and sunshade umbrellas are for rent - 3 million per piece!!!
Everything is so perfect, except for the sun that disappears quite soon (around 4.30 in October), behind the hill protecting the lagoon! But you can always pick your things up and move over to the other side of the beach. ;)
There are even ducks in the shade beside the water, in quiet corners!
Everything is so clean, neat and well kept.
To enter the lagoon, you have to pay the entrance fee of 2 million Turkish Liras (1 euro = 1,8 million, 1US$ = 1,5 million).
Here you can see it well from the air.

"Climbing the waterfall"
You should be very carefull while climbing up there.. Ýt is quiet slippery and there are very dangerous parts. You need a good pair of shoes.. Although there are ropess to help climbers in some places, you can never guess how the stones will react..
