    Deserted village

    It's only 15 minutes by dolmus from Hisaronu. The deserted village has over 1000 buildings to explore, is fascinating, and there's a cafe right opposite the dolmus stop for post-exploration refreshments.

    Drink tea...........

    A Hisaronu cafe.

    Because it's served in the Turkish way (in a glass, no milk, with sugar cubes provided) and is extremely refreshing in the heat. And a great deal cheaper than alcohol (which is only slightly less than in the UK).

    Hisaronu Market

    An intimate market where you can buy all kinds of wonderful things, from real fake D&G/Gucci handbags and GA jeans to Turkish ornaments, table cloths and spices.

    See my tourist trap 'bartering in shops' tips for advice on how to get a good price when dealing with market traders.

    Fethiye Market

    Travel a little further for a massive market with plenty of variety and competition. Fethiye market is about 3 times the size of the one you will see in Hisaronu but note that traders here seemed a lot more pushy than those in the more intimate Hisaronu market.

    Takes place on Tuesdays.

    Turkish Bath with Foam Massage

    This is a must when in Turkey for the ultimate feeling of relaxation.

    I can recommend the spa in the Magico Bronzo hotel. The gents there are University qualified and really look after you to give the best experience possible.

    After a sauna and wash down, your skin is exfoliated and then massaged with foam.
    It's the most relaxed I've ever felt.

    12 Islands

    Docking at one of the 12 islands

    This gorgeous boat trip takes you off from Fethiye harbour around 12 neighbouring uninhabited islands in the Med. There are 5 stop offs at a selection of these islands with time to swim or just catch a few more rays.

    I highly recommend doing one of these boat trips as they are a great way to see some more of the surrounding area.
    Be warned that you need to get to the boat ealry in order to get your place in the sun as most of the boat is in shade and it would be disappointing not to get in the sun for the whole day.

    Horse Riding

    Horse riding took place in the cool late afternoon when the sun wasnt so hot.Just outside Hiseronu at the Dortnal ranch.We booked with our hotel so a bus picked us up and took us here.The tutor was a very friendly man who chose horses for us depending on our riding experience and off we went on our trek up through the forest and climbing a small mountain.There are usually between ten and twelve horses and riders taken out on each trek at a time.My horse was called'Sarasen'and was quite well behaved apart from stopping every now and again for a quick nibble on a branch or two.The trek takes about an hour in total and half way through you get a ten minute brake to de-saddle and take a look down from the mountain at the Blue Lagoon.Then its back down the other side and back to the ranch.A great time and well worth the money.
    costs 20TL per adult.
