Fethiye is a port city on Turkey's southwestern Turquoise Coast. Fethiye is a great place to visit whether on a day excursion or for longer and a great way to make any holiday to Rhodes more exciting. Fethiye is a large, bustling harbour town and trading centre. The town, with a natural harbour, has been fought over by the Ottomans, Romans, Seljucks and Byzantines. History is evident throughout the town centre including colossal rock tombs that are floodlit at night, the ruins of a castle and fort on the hill, and an amphitheatre to the rear of the main harbour. You can book tickets to Fethiye from Rhodes using AFerry.
Fethiye is well worth a visit. Especially worth visiting are the magnificent rock tombs that are built directly into the rockface. The old castle and the amphitheatre near the port are also worth a look in.
However, the nearby region is also worth exploring. In recent years there has been a very large increase in tourism following the development of popular resorts like Calis, Hisaronu, Ovacik and Oludeniz. Oludeniz is well known for its blue lagoon which is formed by a spit of sand that is so large that it practically creates a lake from the sea. This is well worth a visit, if you have the time.
Fethiye itself is quite unlike these modern tourist resorts and as such provides a nice contrast. Near the harbour you will find the old Town (Paspatur). This is a delightful maze of little alleys packed with shops, restaurants, bars and boutiques. It's a great place to find a bargain but remember haggling is not an option! Or you might want to watch the world go by with a drink by the duck-pond.
The town is busiest of a Tuesday when the region's largest market comes to town. Here you can happily while away a few hours buying anything from fresh organic vegetables to high fashion. However, be warned, some of the designer items may not be original!

Taking this ferry allows you to extend your holiday and to explore Turkey at the same time as you visit Greece. Particularly worth visiting in Fethiye are the famous rock tombs.

Fethiye port facilities
The port is in a natural harbour where yachts also dock. The port area is very much an integral part of the town and a beautiful area. There are nearby cafes, restuarants and hotels with the old town and amphitheatre close by. Public transport and taxis are also easily and readily available.
Getting to Fethiye port
The port is small and if taking an excursion to the town then you may have no need to use transport at all as there is plenty to see and do within walking distances of the port itself. However, taxis and public busses are readily available near the port.
11 Oct 2017pleasant journey
Booking online was straightforward, the cost of the journey was slightly more than I expected to pay, but this journey was of necessity. Slight delay at passport control in Rhodes and Fethiye,otherwise,no problems. Reasonably comfortable airline type seats for the one and a half hour crossing and no over crowding....rather noisy engines, though. All in all a pleasant journey.

Overall not bad service but the hydrofoil was rather dated and shabby but it did the job and we where soon getting on with the next leg of our holiday.

Took this journey on the catamaran, some of the seats were broken, the crew never uttered a work to the passengers, there was no safety talk, the boat arrived over an hour late without any explanation.

24 Oct 2014An accident waiting to happen!
I hate to give bad reviews but seriously this service would have to rank as the most unsettling travel experience I have ever encountered. Why is this vessel is allowed to operate? Unexplained delays of up to 4 hours; lack of communication from port staff; no safety instructions at all on board; poor communication from the captain; overcrowding on board; passengers sitting in plastic garden chairs at the rear of the vessel; obvious lack of maintenance of the vessel etc. Being fearful of your life whilst travelling is not something I would ever want to experience again or to have anyone else experience it. In all honesty I would never recommend this service to anyone. The "Flying Poseidon" must be decommissioned before there is a disaster! It is a death trap.

24 Oct 2014An unforgettable journey!
Although we were travelling as a group (12), each couple had booked this ferry independently. Two couples were turned away at the ticket office, despite having proof of booking and payment, and offered an alternative route (ferry to Marmaris and bus from there) - they departed Rhodes at around 5:30pm. The vessel intended for the trip, the Aegean Queen, had apparently broken down on an earlier trip that day. The replacement vessel, the Flying Poseidon, is in need of repair. The scheduled departure for the trip from Rhodes to Fethiye was 4:30pm - scheduled arrival time in Fethiye 6:00pm. Actual departure time from Rhodes was around 7:30pm, the journey taking three and a quarter hours instead of one and a half hours. So, the four couples travelling on the Flying Poseidon arrived at around 10:45pm - four and three quarter hours later than scheduled. Staff to passenger communication was practically non-existent. No-one appeared to know what was going on. Boarding the vessel was a harrowing experience, with three staff members allocated to help each passenger board one by one. Each passenger was instructed to 'jump' from dry land onto the vessel when deemed safe enough to do so. Infants and small children had to be handed from parents on dry land to a member of staff on the vessel - presumably deemed the safest way to get small people on board. When we were finally on board, there were no safety instructions to be found, no communications from the staff to very nervous passengers as to emergency procedures, eta, etc. Many lights weren't working, some areas were in complete darkness. Unbeknown to us, our luggage was outside, exposed to the elements. Well into the trip a garbled message, presumably in Turkish, was relayed through a faulty PA system. No-one understood what was being said. All in all, this was a very unpleasant and frightening experience. We can confidently say that rather than recommending the Flying Poseidon, we would advise avoiding that mode of travel at any cost. Needless to say, our friends travelling the alternative route via Marmaris (two couples), had a far more pleasant experience. And, they arrived at our destination considerably earlier and considerably less stressed than the rest of us (four couples).
