Great for Families

Great Day Trips
Fethiye is a great day out to see the busy bazaar and you can book up for glass bottom boat tours from Ovacik to visit the secluded coves along the coast, not forgetting also a day trip to Patara Beach. You can also spend a day on the nearby Greek island of Rhodes.
The spectacular and eerie `ghost town` of Kayakoy is an absolute must to visit, as are the ancient Lycian rock tombs at Fethiye and Saklikent Gorge. Take a boat trip to picturesque `Butterfly Valley` and walk up from the lovely beach, through fields of beautiful butterflies, to the waterfalls.
You have the best of both worlds in Ovacik, with the perfect beaches and lagoons mixed with the peaceful vibe of Ovacik, yet Hisaronu close by if you need to liven it up.
