Islands & Coves

Fethiye is a haven for those who want to take a break from city life and enjoy the tranquillity of nature and the sea. A corner of heaven, Fethiye attracts many visitors with its numerous islands and coves, its blue-flag beaches, turquoise sea and green forests, all making it worth visiting for a fabulous summer break. There are many gorgeous islands and coves around Fethiye, Ölüdeniz and Göcek. In this section, you can find detailed information on the coves located around the peninsula to the west of Fethiye city centre. These coves are collectively known as “Oyuktepe Coves”.

Aksazlar Cove

4 km away from the centre of Fethiye, Aksazlar is the closest cove to the city. Often visited by the locals of Fethiye, Aksazlar is also popular with tourists who want to spend a relaxing day at the beach. Aksazlar Cove has a white quartz beach, shallow waters and a stunning view of Fethiye. Aksazlar Cove also includes a picnic area and campsite and is known to play host to the occasional music festival. Car parking is available for private cars or there is a regular dolmuş service that runs from Fethiye.

Samanlık Cove

8 km from the Fethiye city centre is Samanlık Cove. The cove, which is split into two sections by a headland, is known as “Küçük  (Small) Samanlık” and “Büyük (Big) Samanlık” and is surrounded by lush  pine tree forests that dip down to meet the azure sea. It is a popular stopover for daily boat trips, and is also accessible by car or public transport. The private facilities at the beach offer a variety of services. Visitors are also welcome to bring their own food and have a picnic at the beach. The beach is a mixture of pebbles and sand and the sea is generally calm.

Kuleli Cove

Kuleli Cove is managed by a private facility with a “halal” concept. The beach itself is a little further west from Samanlık Cove and 7 km away from Fethiye centre. The beach is white sand and the sea is generally calm, making it popular with families. If you don’t have a car, the public busses to the peninsula run fairly regularly from the city centre.

Boncuklu Cove

The last of the Oyuktepe coves, Boncuklu, is located further west along the peninsula, a location that is perfect for viewing stunning sunsets. Although slightly more wavy than the other beaches, the sea is usually very clear and calm during the early hours of the day. You can get there by public transport or if you’re driving, it is only 5 km away from the centre. The private facility at the beach offers sunbeds, umbrellas, food and car park services.
