Fethiye Restaurants

  • Fresh Fish

    This is really a difficult one it would be unfair to say one is better than another.There are so many Restaurants to choose from and so many variations depending on taste.My advice is just try what you fancy. Donner kebab & Ice-cream (yes Please)Ice cream, people who have been will understand ,its good for the simple reason they know how to...

  • Best Wine House

    The House is just below the site of Levissi.The restoration is at once friendly, natural, comfortable and loyal to the traditiond manner.The House is protected with natural stone garden walls and has a magnificent gardenyard with a BBQ area for cozy evenings out in the garden.Grandfloor is the Wine Cellar on the upper floor are 2 separate Studio...

  • Best Italian in Oludeniz

    There are many restaurants in Oludeniz to choose from but I liked this one because the pasta dishes are really very good and also because the waiting staff were friendly and not pushy as they can be in some of the other restaurants around. The menu also includes a wide range of English and Turkish dishes as well as Italian. The beachfront location...


Fethiye Nightlife

  • Turkish Night

    I have to say I was very impressed with the Turkish night laid on by : Olu Deniz Resort Hotel.(If only every night had been so).I have never ever seen such a graceful Belly Dancer as the one in the photo.(yes I have the Video,but you will have to wait).It would be very unfair to name just one place for evening entertainment when there is so much...

  • Waterpipe&Cocktail

    We were there 2005 June.And one nigth get out of the room and drive to Fethiye center.As a person used to work in Turkish Tourism Buisness , I really dont like anymore to go out at nigth.But that bar changed my mind...Great Car Cemetery decoration,live music,waterpipes,outside tables(on the street),inside 2 different decoration.First in the...

Fethiye Transportation

  • Dolmus

    The Dolmus is most probably the most effective way to get around,its basically a Minibus that will normally stop if you put your hand out along their route.It may get a little crowded sometimes but inexpensive and easy, either pay the driver on getting or Off.Prices from Oludeniz at the time we were there June2010:Oludeniz-Hisaronu...

  • Mini buses

    There are mini buses around that take you to local places....all you do is ask the driver is he going to a certain place and he will say yes or no. The buses are small and not airconditioned....but that is ok because distances are generally not long...also, you can get a taxi, but many taxis are not airconditioned either......

  • Don't Forget Insurance

    If your current health insurance doesn't cover you while your abroad, you should consider getting international travel insurance just in case something should go wrong.

Fethiye Shopping

  • Currency

    To any new visitor to turkey.I have seen on this site that people speak of Turkish Lira millions example 2.5 million TL to the UK Pound.It has changed some years ago so now - example 2.5 YTL (New Turkish Lira) to UK Pound.So now you will not be confused when reading here. Jewellery, Carpets, Lighting, Clothes, Shoes, Bags, Spices,Turkish Delight...

  • Haggle to your hearts Content

    This place is special,vibrant bustling hive of activity,you can get anything from Vegetables, Linens, belts,designer bags ,T shirts even leaches.Now for the haggling which in my view makes this place tick.Forget the price they mention,have a price in your mind of what you are prepared to pay and stick to it.This is how it goes I saw hat which I...

  • To buy or not to buy?

    Well, it is hard to say. If you are going through Istanbul than you will know that most turkish tourist trinkets can be had for much less there than in the beach towns.That does not mean that there is nothing to buy. You can find great quality pirate DVD's, not to mention good quality, low-cost knockoffs of every design known to man in all the...

    Money Exchange

    by kevin36 Updated Jul 14, 2010

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Dont change your Pounds in the U.K. for Turkish Lira,we did it the wrong way.
    we looked online for the cheapest rates at the time was 2.20Tl to the £,when we got to Olu Deniz it was 2.35Tl to the £ in the high Street.
    Most things are priced in pounds in the shops,seems strange but they want the £ rather than the TL.

    Unique Suggestions: Best to take about 50TL then change the rest there.
    Hotel rates were not as good same as UK 2.20TL to £.

    Fun Alternatives: If you really don't fancy taking pounds at least shop around,we found Post Office online one of the best rates.
