    Exhausting beach day

    November 7, 2020 in Turkey ⋅ ☀️ 23 °C

    Time to explore the area around Fethiye. After breakfast at the seafront, we cycled to Ölüdeniz. İt's a bay with a beautifully blue lagoon, an absolutely stunning location surrounded by high mountains. In order to get there, we had to climb across one of them. And the mountains here are very steep, so we were very happy we didn't have to carry our luggage today. At the beach, we went for a well deserved, nice and refreshing swim in the clear blue water.
    Afterwards, we had to climb up the mountain again. From this side, it was even steeper. Within only 2km, we gained over 300m in elevation, some sections were about 20%.
    On the way back to Fethiye, we took a detour via Karaköy. There's an old abandoned Greek city you can visit. As we have already seen similar sites here in Turkey, we only stopped for a couple of photos and continued our scenic ride.
    One more steep climb and we could roll into Fethiye. Just before the city center, we stopped again. This time, we visited the rock tombs. There was also an old Lycian sarcophagus in the middle of the road. Rather than burying their deads in a Necropolis outside of the city, people in Lycia used to get buried in between the houses. So up til now, you can still sea those sarcophagi in some of the roads in Fethiye.
    We spent the evening at the seafront watching people and strolling along the restaurants. Some of them offered live music and were lit in colourful lights, so it was nice walking around.

    Ölüdeniz, Karaköy

    April 4, 2019 in Turkey ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C

    Traumhafter Strand umgeben von riesigen Bergen. Zur Zeit wirklich noch ein Ölüdeniz. Außer Gleitschirmfliegern und Arbeitern ist der Strand menschenleer. Von hier kommt man auf dem Rückweg nach Fethiye an Karaköy vorbei, ein altes verlassenes griechisches Dorf.
    Ölüdeniz bu zaman gerçekten bir Ölüdeniz. Hiç kimse yok. Sadece paraşütüyle kişi var.
    So, lange nichts mehr vom Essen gesehen.
    Heute waren wir im CINBALE Restaurant .
    Grillen am Tisch, traumhaft wie vor vielen Jahren.

    Liman & Ölüdeniz

    October 5, 2016 in Turkey ⋅ ☀️ 27 °C

    Der Hafen von Fethiye ist einer der schönsten den ich je gesehen habe. Am liebsten hätte ich hunderte Fotos geschossen, doch dann wären wir gar nicht mehr vom Fleck gekommen.
    Denn schließlich hatten wir uns vorgenommen heute nach Ölüdeniz zu fahren und einen Strandtag zu verbringen.
    Uns wurde vorher von dem Wasser vorgeschwärmt und jetzt können wir diese Schwärmerei auch verstehen. Das Wasser ist wunderbar klar und blau! Hier haben wir nur zu gerne den Tag ausklingen lassen.
