Beautiful Çaliş is part of Fethiye and its one of the most picturesque coastal towns in Turkey and therefore one of the favourite hotspots for holidays. On the fringes of Fethiye, it is a lively town with a laid back atmosphere and offers something for everyone, relaxation, great restaurants and bars and friendly people. With its own pedestrianised promenade it’s a great place to sit enjoy a drink with a spot of lunch and watch the world pass by and with a reported 300 days of sunshine each year you can soak up the sun during the day and by night enjoy the amazing sunsets.
Çaliş Beach is a very popular holiday resort on Turkey’s “Turquoise Coast” and the crystal clear deep blue seas explain that name easily, the beach is lined almost from end to end with restaurants offering a superb selection of tasty dishes.
Fethiye is a fabulous place to visit there are plenty of reasons why, the narrow lanes of the Paspatur known as the “old town” with its restaurants, bars, souvenir and gold shops, actually getting there is a great experience on the Çaliş water taxi that leaves the canal just behind the seafront. Water taxis leave every half hour but don’t believe the advertised “on the hour and the half hour” this is Turkey so times may differ! To use the Çaliş water taxi service simply go to the kiosk and purchase your tickets (single or return) and once the boat is docked you will be allowed on board. It’s a very laid back and enjoyable experience and it’s a great way to travel.
There is plenty of choice of bars and restaurants in Çaliş Beach with all tastes catered for, bars vary from laid back and relaxed to lively and upbeat and restaurants offer everything from traditional Turkish local cuisine to British favourites and a great mix of International dishes such as Chinese, Indian and Mexican.
Fly into Dalaman and the transfer to Çaliş is around 45 minutes, you can book a shuttle bus, hail a taxi or book a private car to reach your holiday destination.
There is plenty of sightseeing and activities to do here you can visit Sultans Aqua City Water Park for a fun filled family day out which will keep the little ones entertained. A must is a trip to the Fethiye Rock Tombs which are set into the rock face overlooking Fethiye they are exquisitely carved rock tombs, once the final resting place of the great local Lycians around 2,500 years ago. Well worth a visit once you have taken the boat over to Fethiye.
