Could a Calis Beach holiday provide your next escape to the sun? Read on to discover if this Turkish resort ticks your holiday boxes…
A long stretch of beach? Check. Just enough bars and restaurants without being rowdy? Yep. Easy access to a heap of attractions? There certainly is. And what’s more, Calis Beach holidays represent excellent value for money. What’s not to love?
The super-long stretch of sand and shingle that forms Calis Beach is just minutes from the leaf-shaded historic streets and modern marina of Fethiye. It’s a doddle to enjoy the best of lively Fethiye from your base in Calis Beach. But if all you want to do is stare at blue skies and soak up the warmth of Turkey’s coast, then you need not leave this friendly resort.
Hefting yourself up from the horizontal holiday position is worth it, however, as Calis Beach has a water park and plenty of water sports, plus a number of quieter beaches within easy walking distance. Stroll along to Koca Calis, where Daniel Craig acted out some mean and moody beach bar scenes for the James Bond instalment “Skyfall”.
Even closer to home, a pedestrian promenade runs the length of Calis Beach, lined by good-value restaurants, chill-out bars and a generous scattering of palm trees. It too plays its part in making Calis Beach a real hit with families.

Kids and teens: Sultans Aqua City in Calis Beach provides a fun alternative to a day at the beach. Slides are mid-sized rather than knee-tremblingly massive, but even older kids will enjoy the park.
Grown-up families: About, oh, 2,500 years ago, the Lycian people honoured their dead by burying them in tombs cut into the rock face. One of the best examples, the Tomb of Amyntas, is in the cliffs above Fethiye and it’s easy to visit from Calis Beach. Ascend the stairs (there are plenty of them) – the views alone are worth the climb.
Relaxing: Take a bus, hire a car or hop aboard a boat – it doesn’t matter how you get there, just get to Olu Deniz Beach if you can. It is perhaps the most famous beach in Turkey – and you’ll soon see why when you get there.
