This charming Mediterranean town is also famous for its historical attractions. Kaunos, an ancient city dating back to the 9th century BC, has a well-preserved amphitheatre, an Apollo Temple, rock tombs and a Byzantine Basilica. Fethiye, another ancient marine town, will give you the chance to explore the region's antiquity with its Lycian Rock Tombs, medieval fortress and museum. Numerous beachfront bars and nightclubs offer live music and belly dancing in this otherwise quiet town that guarantees a good night out. If you are interested in an authentic Turkish evening, then Kalkan, a local harbour town, is the perfect choice. Nevertheless, for those who are looking for something calmer, a visit to Calis, Icmeler, Ovacik and Kas beach resorts could be a better option. While the beaches offer a stunning sea view, most restaurants and cafes provide tasty traditional Turkish cuisines as well as international choices.
