If you have any further questions, please use the 'contact me' form.

Brian, I was reading an article which said that the whole area is very British in the way it tries to attract customers into its' bars, cafes and restaurants.

I am looking for a quiet traditional Turkish village close-by, where perhaps there are none of these attractions and facilities.

Is Faralya one such village? How far away is it from Oludeniz? Can I walk there or if not, can I get transport there? Will I be able to buy any refreshment there? Will I be made welcome? Sorry, lots of questions.

Thank you.

    Faralya and Kabak are indeed more Turkish than the main tourist resorts of Oludeniz, Hisaronu and Ovacik.

    Faralya is approximately 8 kms from Oludeniz with Kabak a further 7 kms.

    Its a very picturesque area with fantastic views over the Mediterranean sea.

    Its a very twisting road to Faralya/Kabak and rather steep in places.

    Because of the distance it would be better to get a dolmus, bus, although many people do walk along the main road or along the Lycian Way.

    Along the main road you will pass the Lykia World holiday complex. Butterfly Valley, although I wouldn't advise climbing down to the valley as it is very dangerous climb down due to its steepness.

    You can see some of my photos I took of my walk from Oludeniz to Faralya/Kabak from the web site here ...

    As its more a Turkish area you will pass many Turkish cafes ... just small cafes serving basic food but very traditional Turkish food ... non of your full English breakfasts here.

    There are one or two hotels in the area that I would consider staying at .. The Lazy Lizard Boutique Hotel being one .. you can just pop in for a snack or refreshments in there lovely garden restaurant as you pass.

    Another place is the Olive Garden Accommodation and Restaurant .. a beautiful place to spend an afternoon and or early evening. There web site is here ..

    I have friends coming out on holiday in July and I most certainly intend to take them out here and to visit the Olive Garden for the afternoon.:)

    Kabak has a lovely beach ... its a bit of a trek down to it from the main road but well worth it.

    So Faralya and Kabak is a place "more Turkish" if that's what your looking for.

    The dolmus goes from Fethiye in "peak season" @ 7 , 9 and 11 am, 1300 , 1600, and 1800.

    Returning from Kabak @ 8.30, 10.30, 12.30,14.30, 17.30 and 19.30.

    The dolmus goes via Oludeniz en route to Kabak.
