Faralya Travel Guide

Kabak Cove part of Faralya region.

Faralya is plain beautiful. The road from Oludeniz that goes all the way through Faralya district offers some of the most incredible views along the coast especially when it goes over Butterfly Valley . That road curls around the cliffs and ends at the hill above Kabak cove. the small cove which has gained popularity in recent years especially among Turkish young professionals along with international trekking communities.

Faralya district is also part of the Lycian way and is a strip of about 40 km starting to the south of Oludeniz. The conventional accomodations like hotels and guest houses are along the cliffs so if you stay at any of them you will have to walk down about 1 or 2 km which almost takes half an hour on foot. And same after beach. So unless you are fit and willing, staying in one of the hotels above the cliff will not be considered as a beach vacation.

On the other hand the region offer many sights and villages, if you have rented a car, you can go to Oludeniz Belcekiz beach about 15 minutes down the road. Or you can do daily treks in the area and the beach could be a part of it.

If you want a beach vacation in the area than you would have to trade comfort for a stay down below, near the beach either in Butterly Valley or Kabak in bungalows, huts or tents in a campside. Then of course you would stay in the valleys for a while as you would have to trek up to go other places and that would be a daunting task to do every day.

Public transportation to the city center of Fethiye from Faralya is not frequent so inquire about your return trip schedule before leaving Fethiye.
