Fethiye is located in the Lycia region of Turkey, on the Mediterranean coast.
Fethiye is a tourist destination with a multicultural vibe. It features a great marina and a lively nightlife. The town is also a great place to visit if you want to see the interior countryside, and it’s perhaps the only city in the world with sarcophagi in the streets. When floodlit at night, these pre-Roman Lycian antiquities are exceptionally impressive. The town has a population of roughly 50,000 people, but during the busy season, from April to the end of October, when off-shore inhabitants spend their summers at their second homes, the population skyrockets.
