TURKEY SNORKELING EXPERIENCE
These three snorkelling destinations are all 30mins drive from each other. Stay in Fethiye and you get to snorkel 3 of the best snorkelling locations in Turkey on the same holiday.
Fethiye may already be well known to you, if you are a fan of scuba diving, but it also holds some aces for snorkelers as well.
Besides having a good selection of local beaches nearby to sun yourself, the main lure of Fethiye, a famous tourist destination in its own right, is to swim amongst the sea turtles. September is the month that they come ashore to lay eggs, so it is the best time to visit that particular area. On top of this, there are shipwrecks waiting to be discovered for those prepared to take deeper dives of exploration.
A little more off the beaten track, if you liked Olu Deniz, but couldn’t find enough tranquillity there, this is the one for you. This is a beautiful, secluded beach that gives a good view of nearby St Nicholas Island in the distance. It is actually swimmable to visit, if you are sure that you are up to it, or there is a boat available to see the ruins there.
If you prefer your beaches to have golden sands, you could always try Dalyan. Here, six kilometres of warm sands invite you to relax. You can always be assured of a space on this beach, which is not deserted, but certainly not crowded either. The waters are as clear as you would expect for snorkelling, and you’ll get a pretty view while you’re at it. Turtle beach is, as the name implies, where the Turtles come to spawn, in June and July. The beach is itself a bit of a trek away from the actual village of Dalyan, though.
