Where I stayed
However, the place is beautiful, and despite what the guidebooks have to say about the profusion of hotels, remains fairly unspoilt. We were virtually the only people on the beach, and the light was intermittently grey with cloud, then bright with peeping sun. There was very little wind, and the water had the incredible turquoise blue hue that is so alluring
From there, we drove into Fethiye, about a 25 minute drive until we were able to find a room at the Yacht Plaza Hotel, overlooking the small boat marina. The area was completely protected, and even though the temperature was in the 50's, I felt warmer.
After checking in, we took a stroll and ended up at the Iskele Restaurant and Ocakbashi, where our waiter, Tio, provided us with excellent service. We had the full gamut of a seaside dinner, with salads, fish and wine. What a dinner and we walked home contented and relaxed. Patty and I read and surfed the internet in the lobby, while the children read in the nearby room and fell asleep.
Another thought about Turkey: There is amazingly widespread availability of the internet, and in almost all places we have stayed in, it has been high quality wireless. It has certainly made travel with a laptop very convenient. Our most popular websites: hotmail.com, weather.com, windfinder.com, and of course, travelspot.com
