2. Kaya to Afkule – Approx 3 – 4
A beautiful walk through the Kaya Valley,
then up through the forest to see this unique building. With
wonderful views out over the sea, the Datcha Cape is to your right
and the island of Rhodes is ahead and to the west.
According to legend, the monastery was built
by a monk named Elefterios, using only the simple tools he acquired
as a beggar.
3. Kaya to Oludeniz – Approx 1 – 2
hours one way
This is an energetic walk of about 5km
rising from the back of Kaya Ghost Village before descending through
the forest to Oludeniz. The walk is hilly and steep in places.
4. Yakamoz to Mendos – Approx 2 –
3 hours return
And now for
something completely different. This is a new walk, incorporating
stunning views of Fethiye and across the bay, traditional cottages
and shady pine forests. The road is wide and easy to follow, and
you can walk as far as you feel able. Or alternatively, rest
frequently to enjoy the scenery. Take plenty of water.
5. Babadag / Ovacik Road to
Babadag - Approx 3 – 5 hours one way
Turn left half way to Mendos end up near
shell petrol station.
This is an energetic walk up in to the
forests flanking the slopes of the Baba Dag. The forest are part of
a national park and as the road ascends, the pines give way to blue
Lebanese Cedars before the trees fail altogether. Wonderful views
unfold of the valley and Fethiye the higher you climb. Go as far as
you like, or can manage – you can even wall all the way to the top
if you feel the need, a height of 6500 feet,
One of the best bits of this journey is that
the return journey is entirely downhill

Approx 3 hours one way
A fairly long walk
through the forest, down to Fethiye. No steep hills and no traffic
