Calis carnival makes Fethiye the Ultimate Turkey Holiday destination

Most people book their summer holidays as soon as the cold winter season begins and I for one think it is a great idea; booking holidays to hot places like Turkey provides a focus and gives something fun to look forward to.

If like most Brits, you enjoy yearly Turkey Luxury Villa Holidays, trying a destination like Fethiye will definitely be worth your while.  You can plan the trip to coincide with the popular Calis carnival which is a favourite for Brits and other tourists from different parts of the world.

Going on for three years now, the Calis carnival has become one of the highlights of visiting Fethiye and neighbouring resorts. The growing popularity of the Calis carnival is mainly down to the gorgeous Calis beach, the oh so hot temperatures, Calis has an average of 25 degrees and the chance to explore Fethiye, which is a typical Turkish harbour town.

Fethiye as a holiday destination has a lot to offer, there are a lot of shops to satisfy even the worst shopaholic, it also has a mixture of modern and historical cultures as well as an active night life. This merits Fethiye as popular holiday destination on its own but the Calis carnival propels the whole experience to another level.

 Fethiye is definitely a destination worth exploring when planning your Turkey Luxury Villa Holidays, you will not be disappointed. 2011’s Calis carnival will be on Saturday 28th of May and all proceeds will go to local charities, don’t miss it.


  1. Another highly popular resort in the Fethiye area is Hisaronu. Hisaronu sits in a fabulous location surrounded by the stunning pine-clad Babadag mountain. Days are easily spent lazing on the beach or by the pool of the many apartments and hotels. Nights are for venturing out to one of the many restaurants or lively bars. Located just above the world famous beach of Olu Deniz, Hisaronu has developed into a lively resort due to limited room for expansion in Olu Deniz itself.
    The bustling streets lined with traditional Turkish houses with forests in the distance, give Hisaronu a real rural yet thriving feel. The locals are extremely friendly and welcoming to the tourists, and as such there are plenty of places to eat and drink. Quiet and relaxing by day, the resort transforms into a lively hub of entertainment by night. The bars and discos offer those with energy to burn the perfect opportunity to have some fun, while those preferring to relax can head to one of the many first-rate restaurants. The resort doesn’t have inflated prices, so it is entirely possible to have a cheap holiday in Hisaronu. The resort has many British visitors during high season, whilst maintaining its Turkish feel. Bordering Hisaronu is also the quieter resort of Ovacik which is still within walking distance. Ovacik also has a water park, which is a great day out.
    Although the resort is located slightly inland, the idyllic beach of Olu Deniz is just a few minutes away.
    Olu Deniz beach is the most photographed in Turkey. Every holiday brochure featuring Turkey has this a picture of this world famous beach. Known as the Blue Lagoon, its beauty is well worth the short journey, hopping on one of the frequent and cheap dolmus (local minibus) to take you there.

  2. No ta this place doesnt attract me at all. Too many Brit cliques there which is a shame. I want to visit Turkey and meet Turkish people and experience Turkish food not burger and chips pizza or fish and chips its like a Turkish Benidorm full of Brits dominating the place trying to impose what they see as 'their lifestyle' on the Turks. I have to say beautiful scenery shame about the Brits there. Same down at Olu Deniz and Hisaronu is horrific a man-made town like Blackpool with mosquitoes. Kalkan Kas are the same but not as bad. The Brits have most certainly taken over this part of Turkey but slowly being ousted by the Russians and rising prices I see :))
