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!

03 Aug 2014Cancelling travel
Unfortunately, our ferry boat (09:00 am) cancelled after all passengers checked in and settled in boat because of broken of one of motors. It wasn't daily tour for us and we booked our rental car and accommodation. staff couldn't handle this problem. We forced them to solve the problem, they decided to bring us to Marmaris by minibus for another ferryboat would leave at 17:00 o'clock. A guy came with us to Marmaris for help us ?!!! No body care us, we entered to queue again wait for our new tickets, all passengers was very tired and angry when they get on the boat. Our 1 day died and we were very tired when we arrived to our hotel in Rhodes at 22:00.

28 Jul 2014Cancellation
Our trip from Fethiye to Rhodes was cancelled due apparently to engine trouble. After much queuing we were put on a bus to Marmaris and eventually arrived 8 hours behind schedule. We understood from the hotel in Rhodes that this route has a bad reputation for cancellations and delays - avoid.

27 Jul 2014Poor. The crossing was cancelled and bussed to Marmaris.
We booked a one way trip from Fethiye to Rhodes Port. Checked in ok and boarded the vessel, the Flying Poseidon. First observations were that the vessel was very old and dirty. After being on board for 3/4 hour, it was announced the crossing was cancelled due to being unable to start the engines. Everyone then got off and joined the chaos on the harbour side to be told we would have to be bussed two hours to Marmaris to get a ferry from there to Rhodes in the evening. Not a good experience and I would not recommend Tuana Maritime.
