Fethiye Places to Go Tours Sites To Visit Trips Deals Packages

Kaya Köyü

On a rocky promontory south of Fethiye an idyllic valley is overlooked by the ruins of a once-sizable Greek village, Kaya Köyü. Its inhabitants, who knew the place as Levissi, were forced out by the Greek-Turkish population exchange of 1923.

Today the empty “ghost” village, with its 600-plus roofless houses, attractive churches and cobbled lanes, is a protected site (daily 8.30am-5pm; £1.10). It was immortalised in Birds Without Wings, the epic novel by Louis Des Bernieres about the First World War, and provides a beautiful backdrop to the pastoral hamlets of Keçiler and Kınalı spread at its feet.

There’s little to do in the valley except explore the ruins, stroll along lanes between remarkably English-looking fields or relax on the balcony of your guesthouse and admire the distant peaks.

Around Kaya Köyü

The major resort of Fethiye (below), with shops, restaurants, bars, a lively weekly market (every Tuesday) and pretty harbour-front, is a short drive or dolmuş (minibus) ride away. Even closer is Ölüdeniz, a much-photographed lagoon that is part of a nature park (daily dawn-dusk; £1.20), though you can swim from the beach in front of the adjacent resort of Belceğiz for free.

The more energetic can walk from Kaya Köyü to Ölüdeniz in less than three hours, admiring en-route some of the most dramatic coastline in the Mediterranean.

There are also walks to other beaches nearby, including Gemiler, from where there are boat trips to the abandoned Byzantine Greek church of Aya Nikola.
