The yacht charter destination Fethiye, a town with 60,000 inhabitants, is a popular holiday resort and home to several yacht charter Fethiye providers. It is located in southern Turkey’s Mediterranean coast, only about 50 kilometers from Dalaman airport. The sailing area is rather tranquil, very popular and an idyllic sailor’s paradise, where even less experienced yacht charter Fethiye crews enjoy sailing. The Gulf of Fethiye does not show to many waves, but there is usually blowing a steady wind: The Meltemi comes here from April to September mainly from the west and provides ideal sailing weather.
The idyllic Yacht Charter Fethiye area has numerous small bays, headlands and islands, as well as great opportunities for swimming and snorkeling. Especially popular is the white sandy beach of Ölüdeniz with turquoise blue sea, only about 14 kilometers from the city center of Fethiye. From the yacht charter bases in Fethiye, most sailors head west towards Marmaris and Bodrum, cruises to the east are interesting as well, and many sail to the Dodecanese islands like Rhodes or Kos when they have enough time.
For Yacht Charter Fethiye crews, two marinas offer all services with the usual standards. Here are sailing yachts and boats of all size classes. The ECE Marina – Ece Saray Marina & Resort – went into service in 2003 with 465 berths and offers striking architecture, a 5-star hotel with health and wellness facilities. The city center is reachable from here in less than an half an hour walk. Yes Marina, a small marina with 30 berths in the southwestern part of the bay of Fethiye, is a 15 minutes walk away.
As a yacht charter destination Fethiye is almost ideal: the old town offers bars, restaurants, cafes and shops as well as day trips to attractions. A visit to one of the many restaurants with the delicious Turkish cuisine is a must anyway. But the city has much more to offer to yacht charter Fethiye crews. Fethye was built on the ruins of the ancient city Telmessos, whose history can be traced back to the 5th Century BC. An earthquake almost destroyed it in 1957. Some items from the old days have been preserved, worth seeing for those yacht charter Fethye crews who are interested in the history. The Historical Museum of Fethiye gives an overview of the different cultures. Directly above the village in a steep rock wall, you should not miss the Lycian rock tombs with the Temple grave of Amyntas from the 4th Century BC. In the immediate vicinity of the tomb there are a number of other rock-tombs. Some of them date from the 6th Century BC. The place is worth a visit, not only because of the breathtaking view that you have from here across the city and the bay! Also worth seeing for yacht charter crews: the ruins of the Hellenistic theater in the southwest of Fethiye, which is designed for 6,000 spectators and there are sometimes still performances taking place – theatre and concerts. The remains of the castle of St. John from the 15th century on the hill above the town, built with help of Genoa, the mosque of Eski Cami and the traditional Turkish Hamam are worth a visit as well.
