A unique view comes into sight after an arduous but ultimately rewarding journey.

Kidrak Beach

Kidrak Beach, which is 2 kilometers from Oludeniz and 15 kilometers from Fethiye, is located in Kidrak Nature Park. The stony bottom of the sea makes the waters crystal-clear like a glass. It is better to wear water shoes in the sea. Turquoise waters give the beach an exceptional beauty. Care must be taken as the sea deepens very rapidly.

Calis Beach

At Calis Beach, morning is the best time for those who are looking for calm waters without waves. The sea is calm as a millpond until noon but becomes wavy in the afternoon. It is recommended that you wear your water shoes as the bottom of the sea is stony. Paragliding is one of the landmarks in Fethiye.
