A hidden gem in the bay of Fethiye, a hugely popular tourist retreat, this secret little island is one that you will not forget easily. Favoured as a holiday resort for Turkish people there are numerous bougainvillea-covered villas available here available to rent in the wonderful surrounds of many church ruins and ancient walls, hinting at the history of this beautiful island. Considerably quieter compared to the nearby mainland, the island is the perfect place to relax and unwind, taking your time to watch the boats sailing past, the modern world will seem so far away.
One of the most interesting things to do is to take to the seas in a canoe as it is the best way to see the full island, there are no roads and the trek inland can be quite difficult. You are also able to see further remnants from the history of the island as you paddle over submerged houses and ancient walls. There is only one hotel and one restaurant on the island but if you are coming to get away from it all then you are unlikely to find anywhere more peaceful than here.
