Nothing compares to the view of this area from above. Fethiye and the surrounding areas of Olu Deniz and Hisaronu are renowned for their natural unspoiled beauty. This coastline of the Mediterranean has been unspoiled for centuries. Fethiye was once known as Telmessos and suffered an earthquake that dramatically changed the town landscape. Fortunately, due to one man who dreamed and foretold of such an event, most of the population survived. The town became renamed, Fethiye, in his honour, and the re building of the town began.
Today, it is dualfold, not only is Fethiye a thriving holiday resort but it is also a year round working, Turkish town. To holiday or even just visit Fethiye, is to experience modern Turkey at its finest. The skyline is intermittently dominated by Baba Dag Mountain (translating as Father Mountain) it is the highest point visible in the distance over this region. It is from Baba Dag that you begin your descending flight, landing on the beach of nearby Oludeniz. Indeed as you land you look down upon the sunbathers, they will no doubt be looking up at you, in amazement and awe.
At its highest point Baba Dag is an unsurprising 1969 metres! You can experience the most amazing views, not only of the smaller mountains that cascade down to the shoreline, but the valleys hidden from view at sea level, down to the ‘Blue Lagoon’ of Olu Deniz, where you land, nearby. This natural phenomenon is where the salt water meets the fresh water of the lagoon, causing a high level of saline enabling the body to float easily in its waters. Hence its name of ‘dead sea’. An ideal place to learn to swim if you havent already.
The colours of the azure Mediterranean and the emerald green of the forestry that seem to grow right to the waters edge, will enchant you along every part of your journey.
